There are few parishes in the Church of
England who do not benefit from the ministry and mission of retired
clergy at some point.
After a lifetime of service to the Church, clergy in retirement
often continue their ministry assisting local churches. We help
them to play a full role through the provision of retirement
accommodation and, where applicable, direct grants to supplement
Through our charitable funds, we provide housing to around 2,500
retired clergy and their dependants. The money to provide this
support comes from the tenants of the properties, the wider Church
(through the General Synod) and from our own charitable funds.
Legacies and donations provide valued support and help us
continue to provide the level of services currently offered.
