Clergy Partners

Welcome to the clergy partners page! Where you can connect with other clergy partners through events or individually. 

Being a clergy partner puts us in a unique position in ministry which brings its good bits and not so good bits. The spouses events and gatherings aim to give us all a space to be ourselves where others understand. (It is not training to be the perfect vicar’s wife or husband!) 

You may be at a stage where you want this or at a stage where you can’t think of anything worse than getting together with a bunch of other clergy partners. Whatever your needs this page is here for you!

As a group we aim to be:

  • Safe
  • Spiritually Refreshing
  • Inclusive. Valuing.
  • Fun. 
  • Staying in touch
  • Informal and informing 
  • Low demand - Once a year as a diocese wide group 
  • Encouraging prayerfulness in small groups for each other.  
  • Learning from each other
  • Sharing diversity

Our latest quiet retreat day

Faith, fellowship, and a warming fire were at the heart of a recent quiet retreat day for clergy partners in the Diocese of Leicester.

The day of rest and rejuvenation was organised by Jenny Worsfold and Lynn Snow and was held at The Stable House in North Kilworth.  

Well appreciated by those clergy partners that attended, the gathering was led by Emma Crick de Boom and looked at habits of Reconciliation, with time for cake, barista coffee, walks, communion round the fire and ‘fabulous fellowship’.
