The Clergy Health & Well-Being Service

This service reflects the desire of Bishop Patrick to support his clergy’s health and wellbeing in their ministry from seminary and into their retirement. The service respects the individuality of each priest or deacon. It seeks to provide a personal and professional assessment of their needs, with their consent and to promote the health and well-being of clergy whilst valuing their unique contribution to the life of the Church.

The service provides holistic assessment of physical and mental well-being and social and spiritual support needs. Where appropriate, clergy will be assessed and referred to specific agreed services for on-going support to meet these needs. The Co-ordinator will support individuals as they transition from active full-time ministry through to retirement.

This is a confidential service which respects individual privacy within the framework of good governance and safeguarding. It seeks practical, positive outcomes to support clergy in the challenging ministry of spreading the Gospel.
