Rev Petra given a warm welcome as she moves to East Radnor

Petra Beresford-Webb has been licensed as Priest-in-Charge of the Benefice of East Radnor.

The service at St Edward’s Church in Knighton was led by Archbishop John and the procession was led by the Air Training Corps, who Rev Petra – previously Priest-in-Charge for the Irfon and Wye Valley Ministry Area – had been chaplain to.

Clergy from across the diocese were in attendance, together with members of the local Baptist, Methodist and Catholics churches.

Churchwardens from both East Radnor and Beacon Hill gave Petra the key to the church and led her to the bell to toll.
