I am writing this just a few days after I was licensed as Priest-in-Charge (Vicar) of St Peter’s Church, Yaxley by The Bishop of Ely. It was an incredibly special service and friends and family came from all over the country. There was also an unexpected surprise, as people from The Wenlock Team of Parishes which were my previous parishes in Shropshire came to support me for this service. The community of St. Peter’s Church worked incredibly hard to ensure everything ran smoothly and I would like to thank them. Along with friends and family and so many people from St. Peter’s Church community, were also many different representatives from Yaxley. I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for being there and part of such a special evening. It is going to take me a good while to get to know people, names and places, but do say hello if you see me out and about and I will eventually get there! Thank you for coming to support me.
Simon and I are really excited to be in Yaxley and part of the St. Peter’s community. People have been so helpful as we try to find our way around the village and this side of the country. I was ordained 6 years ago and have been in Shropshire for these 6 years and before this, I was a nurse working mainly in cancer care for 13 years.
Thank you for your welcome to the village and I am looking forward to getting to know people here.
With every blessing,
Rev Sarah (Vicar)
