Other useful information to help you

  • Visit our clergy page and check out the clergy wellbeing information for additional sources of support, advice and information.
  • Church of England: a comprehensive list of national resources and charities supporting clergy and their families on a range of areas including relationships, finance, vocations and health (physical and mental)
  • We have also appointed one Bishops’ Visitor whose specific responsibility is to support clergy spouses and partners where a marriage or partnership is breaking down or may be about to do so. We would always encourage you to talk with them in such circumstances but also recognise you may want some support before you take this step. If you want to speak in confidence with a Bishops’ Visitor please phone Ros Kirkwood in the Bishop's Office.
