MESSAGE FROM SHARON CONSTABLE
Team Vicar for St James' Burton Lazars
I am Sharon Constable and I am your new Team Vicar for St James Burton Lazars.
I am so delighted to be serving the people of Burton, and I look forward to getting to know as many of you as possible! I am here for those who attend church and those who donít!
If you are wondering why Iím called a Team Vicar, itís because I am part of the clergy team of Melton Team Parish. The Team Rector is Revd Kevin Ashby who has overall oversight of the whole team but I have pastoral responsibility for the 5 village churches around the town of Melton. Thorpe Arnold, Burton Lazars, Freeby, Welby and Sysonby! Kevin has pastoral oversight of St Maryís and Melton town itself.
Iím married to Paul and have two grown up sons, James and Andrew. Andrew lives in Somerby ( not a million miles away from Burton!) and James and his partner Rebecca live in Somerset. We also have a grandson, Matthew, who is a very fine fellow of 8 months!
My last post was in Hong Kong at St Johnís Cathedral! You may think ĎWow!í Burton Lazars is very different to Hong Kong! Yes it is, but I love being here! I missed the English countryside so much!
I feel very much that I have come Ďhomeí, and Iím really enjoying my new post in Melton Team Parish.
If ever you need someone to talk to, you would like a visit, or you would like to discuss a possible baptism, or wedding service, or anything at all regarding St James I am here to help so please do not hesitate to call me on

Look forward to meeting you
