Clergy Wellbeing

Ensuring the wellbeing of clergy is an important aspect of the life of the Diocese.

We continue to monitor the key aspects of wellbeing, awareness of trends etc, and enable appropriate actions to be taken to improve the wellbeing of the ordained ministers in the diocese.  COVID-19 has increased our need to ensure we provide support and advice for clergy and their families during this global pandemic.

Here are some links to provisions supporting clergy wellbeing

The creation of the Clergy Wellbeing Group (membership: Bishop of Ludlow, Archdeacon of Hereford (convener), Diocesan Secretary, Chair of House of Clergy, Dean of Women’s Ministry, Revd Sean Semple). This group continues to monitor and make recommendations to help improve the wellbeing of our clergy
