The abbreviated form of the Athanasian Creed is often used on Trinity Sunday. As it is quite long, it can be read by more than one speaker. Two versions scripted for multiple speakers may be found here.

Dramatising the Readings

The readings can be read by more than one person to make the dramatic meaning of the text clearer.

For instance, the first reading could be read by two readers: narrator and Wisdom (a female reader).
