St Luke's Chaplain

Reverend Hannah Alderson

Hannah grew up in Taunton, Somerset, and made the short journey down the M5 to read Theological Studies at the University of Exeter from 2005 to 2008, where she also served as Chaplaincy Admin assistant.

She worked for Devon County Council for three years before training for ordination at Ripon College Cuddesdon and reading for an Oxford MTh from 2011 to 2013.

Hannah was ordained deacon in 2013 and priest in 2014 and served her Curacy at Holy Trinity Bridgwater and St Hugh's Durleigh. She also served as Young Vocations Adviser for the Diocese of Bath and Wells.

Hannah now serves as St Luke's Anglican Chaplain alongside a half-time role as Vocations Development Officer for the Diocese of Exeter, promoting vocation to ministry in the Church of England, and accompanying those who are in the process of discerning their calling.

Her interests include the theology of art and literature, disabled theology, creative writing and poetry. She enjoys baking, with mixed results. She and her husband, Paul, have a four-year-old son called Arthur, and two cats called Ted and Dougal.

Hannah can normally be found in the office at the back of St Luke's Chapel, with a ready supply of tea and biscuits.

You can usually find Hannah in St Luke's Chapel, but if you feel you would like to talk to her and she's not around, please do contact her.
