New Licences for Sheila, Dennis and Jane

Our Vicar writes

“On the 18th February we became a legal benefice with St. John the Evangelist and this means we have a new ministry team. I am Incumbent of the new Benefice, Jane Eastell is Associate Vicar (with responsibility for St John’s parish), Dennis is Associate Priest and Sheila is Benefice Curate. Our three Readers, Daphne, Peter and Ronnie’s POT licences remain unchanged. The associate clergy – Dennis, Jane and Sheila – have received their new licences from the Archdeacon. I will be licensed as Vicar on 6th April at 6.30pm in a Eucharist presided by the Bishop of Taunton.

We hope this service will be a celebration of what God is doing here – building unity and oneness as it says in Ephesians 4.3-6:

“Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called;one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.”
