Clergy wellbeing during pandemic analysed in new report

The Study - Clergy Wellbeing in a Time of Covid: Autonomy, Accountability and Support - undertaken by the Church of England, sets out how clergy have reported on their levels of physical, mental, spiritual, relational and financial wellbeing during the pandemic. 

The study also reports on respondents’ perspectives relating to autonomy, accountability and support.

A second Living Ministry research report, ‘You don’t really get it until you’re in it - meeting the challenges of ordained ministry’ analyses interviews with 61 clergy on their experiences at key stages of their ministry, including starting curacies and incumbent posts and later in their careers. 

The Living Ministry programme is a 10-year research project into the flourishing of Church of England ordained ministers. The project, which launched in 2017, publishes regular updates on its findings for distribution among dioceses, theological education institutions and national church bodies.
