Clergy wellbeing


The wellbeing of our ministers - both lay and ordained - is a key priority for Canterbury Diocese. We know that life in ministry - whether it's your full time 'job' or something you balance with other work and commitments, can be hugely demanding and we are working to ensure that we can better resource and support our ministers. 

What we offer

The Living Well

The Living Well

The Living Well is our diocesan centre for healing and wholeness. It's based at Nonington, near Canterbury and all are welcome. There is a service of healing every Tuesday and Thursday at 10:30am and the team offer a programme of events, both at the Living Well and around the Diocese. You can also arrange individual quiet days - with or without spiritual input from the team. Find out more here

Diocesan Counselling Service

The primary task of the Diocesan Counselling Service is to enable people to become more effective in their lives. Counselling can be valuable if you are feeling that your professional or personal life, has become out of balance in some way. Find out more here.

The Canterbury Diet

The Canterbury Diet is an intentional programme for ministerial development, health, growth and faith. It's currently in development and we hope to be able to offer it to all of our clergy in due course. We are also working on developing a lay programme. Watch this space for more details and don't forget to check out all of our training and development opportuntiites.
