Roots Down, Branches Out

Tania Witter

Tania has been an self-supporting minister at Christ Church since 1995.  Before that, she and her husband, Nick, lived and worked for many years in Vienna, Austria.  For a while, she worked as an editor of technical publications for the United Nations Industrial Development Organisation.  At the same time, she trained as a Lay Reader and was active in Christ Church, the Anglican/Episcopal church in Vienna.  On returning to England, she was selected for ordination training, ordained deacon in 1995 and priest in 1996.
Although she formally retired in 2003, she is still active in Christ Church Highbury, as well as doing occasional chaplaincies in Europe.  Tania and Nick have three children and seven grandchildren, who are important parts of their lives.  Her interests include travel, drama, dance, cooking and entertaining, listening to people and seeking to help them grow in their spiritual lives.
