Bishop leads service in Burnham-On-Sea to licence associate vicar

The Bishop of Bath and Wells led a special service at a Burnham-On-Sea church on Sunday morning (December 18th).

The curate of St Andrew's Church, the Reverend Sharon Eldergill, was licenced as Associate Vicar of Burnham-On-Sea.

The Bishop, the Rt. Revd. Peter Hancock, led the service, which was watched by a congregation joined by many members of the community.

Revd Graham Witts, Burnham's Vicar, said: "We were so grateful that the Bishop could join us today to mark the end of one stage of ministry and to celebrate the beginning of another stage."

"It was a wonderful celebration for a wonderful ministry that Burnham has enjoyed over the past four years - and we know for many more years to come."

The day was rounded off with a traditional Carol service for the whole community at which children from St Andrew’s School sang.
