The Rev'd Joy Hance
Associate Priest| Email
I trained for ministry on the St Albans and Oxford Ministry Course and was ordained in 2002. I was House for Duty for a Benefice of 7 villages in the Vale of White Horse Deanery for 11 years and am now a part-time Associate Priest in the Parish of Witney. I am passionate about God’s love for all people, shown to us in Jesus and manifested through his ministry of healing, which I have experienced in my own life and seen active in the lives of other people.
I am a Spiritual Director, act as residential Chaplain once a term for the Oxford Ministry Course at Ripon College, Cuddesdon, and am the Self-Supporting Ministers’ Officer for our Archdeaconry. I enjoy leading study groups, Quiet Days and the Open Door Retreat.
I am married to Nick, who is retired from working at Harwell, a Tertiary Franciscan, and has the Bishop's authorisation to preach. We have three daughters between us and four granddaughters.
My interests include story - films, dramas and novels; walking - particularly by the sea; cooking and eating; music and dance; art exhibitions and flowers.
