On the evening of the 2nd of August, Holy Trinity Church in Street was the venue for the celebration of a new ministry to welcome the Reverend Sharon Walker as the new Rector of Street with Walton. In a packed church the Bishop of Taunton, the Right Reverend Peter Maurice, and Archdeacon of Wells, the Venerable Nicola Sullivan conducted the induction service.
Sharon, seen here flanked by Walton’s church wardens, is a very down to earth and warm person and is certain to be a hit, if that’s the word, with her new congregations in Walton and Street.
Our new Rector previously served the church in Peterborough and a number of her former congregation were there to see her take up her new role in Street and Walton.
Sharon is married to Andy and they have two children. Unfortunately due to an accident Andy was not able to attend.
I am sure many of you are looking forward to meeting the Reverend Sharon either at church or a village event.
