Janice McAlpine

Janice was born in Sarnia where she worshipped at St. John’s Anglican Church followed by Christ Church Anglican, Camlachie and is currently a member of the Spirit-filled St. John in the Wilderness, Brights Grove. There she serves God as a Licensed Lay Reader, Lay Delegate to Synod, member of the Pastoral Care Team, parish convener for Doors Open Lambton, former AFP Representative and is honoured to be a member of the ACW.

Although Janice is a cradle Anglican, she remains one by her own choice because she firmly believes in the Marks of Mission. She looks forward to the two Lambton Deanery Days held yearly and sharing in loving fellowship with women from other parishes.

Janice has been joyfully married to Mike who keeps her laughing for 25 years. They have rescued numerous animals during their journey together and are currently managed by two dogs and a cat.

Janice earned a degree in Journalism from Western. At that time positions for women were scant so she entered the hospitality industry and held the position of Food and Beverage Manager with two major hotels. This was followed by co-ownership of an appliance store with Mike.

Janice enjoys walking in the woods, cycling, tent camping and attempting to garden. All of these can be in while in prayer.
