In May, Sara Hunter, a clergy spouse in Stepney Area, started a new role within the Diocese of London as Clergy Household Support Officer.

Sara is adding to the work that Louie Thorpe and others have been doing to try and improve the support offered to clergy spouses and partners in the whole diocese.

There are plans for a monthly newsletter offering up to date information on housing, finances and wellbeing amongst other things, a potential page on the London Diocese website specifically for Clergy Households as well as offering opportunities to meet up and socialise with other clergy families, offering one another support and prayer as we navigate this somewhat unusual position! 

We now have over 70 email addresses for clergy spouses/partners but there are many more out there in the diocese – so if you are a member of a clergy household and would like to stay in touch please email or if you know of someone who is, please do share this information with them.
