“Joan is remembered and much loved for her period of stated supply at St Aidan’s,
Hastings where she assisted the parish to unite with St David’s. She was founding
Chaplain of the Hastings Chapter of St Luke’s – the ecumenical healing ministry –
and active in hospital chaplaincy. For several years Joan was half-time assistant
Minister at St John’s. They were exciting years in the midst of the renewal
movement and involved Life in the Spirit seminars. She held most positions in the
Hawke’s Bay Presbytery. It was in the field of personal individual growth that
appealed to her most; helping people to healing and wholeness in the widest
possible sense. When Spiritual Growth Ministries began to train Spiritual Directors
she was able to do their second pilot course and was accredited in 1991.
As the fourth woman to be ordained by the Presyterian. Church of Aotearoa New
Zealand and the first to train extra-murally, Joan paved the way for community
based training movements within our church. When Joan reflected on her life
she realised how pioneering she was, yet at no time during the process did she
consider it in that way. She simply responded to God, took each step in obedience
and expected to be able to do what God thought necessary and then got on with it.”

She had an aunt [Miss Helen MacGregor] who had been in Church of Scotland Mission

conference that she heard of the need for talented people to offer their skills to meet
desperate social, educational and medical needs in India and she was then and there
enlightened as to her life’s work. After completing her training she taught in a variety
of NZ schools as she waited for an opening overseas.  
Volunteer for Mission Service - In 1926 she was ready to go to Jagadhri India but was
turned down by the Presb. Church of NZ Foreign Missions Committee on medical
grounds, and went on teaching in NZ. She applied again later to the Church of Scotland,

joint venture she was a state official also, as the state was jointly master of the school.
The school was a small girls school of 100 which was used to develop a High School for
girls with the help and cooperation of the state.
She retired in 1959 (after 12 years in Sikkim). After one years retirement furlough, she was
asked to go back to Sikkim for one year during 1961 to relieve another Missionary going
on furlough. Also spent 9 months at Bhawan Girls High School at Katmandu in Nepal to
