Hello, my name is Joyce, and I am the Pastoral Assistant to the Minister at Blandford Methodist Church of which I have been a member for 30 years. I also have the pleasure and the privilege of being a Local Preacher and a Circuit Steward.
As part of my role, I visit members of the congregation in their own homes and monthly I take communion to those who are housebound. With the help of volunteers from the church, I run the weekly Friday Lunch Club. Here there is the opportunity to come alongside those who have come to eat a delicious meal and socialise with friends whilst at the same time engaging with the folk from Community Service who prepare, cook, serve, and wash up after the meal. Once a month after lunch we hold a Fellowship Hour and throughout the year, we host Holiday at Home and go on day trips.
I love running, swimming, reading, and doing jigsaws, and enjoy spending time with my family.
With God's guidance and by the power of His Holy Spirit my main passion is telling others in my broad Yorkshire accent about the saving grace of Jesus. So if you do see me say hello because it's always good to talk.
