Advocacy & collaboration

We work with like-minded organisations, with a common goal - to improve clergy wellbeing.
How do we do this?

By using our expertise

St Luke’s 130 years’ experience means we are called on to speak objectively and authoritatively as advocates for clergy health and wellbeing, as  a charity independent of the Church. St Luke’s supports clergy across all dioceses by advocating for clergy wellbeing in influential fora.

By seeing the need for collaboration

St Luke’s plays a leading role in bringing together others who work in the field of clergy wellbeing. We view collaboration as essential in realising our vision of a flourishing, healthy clergy.

By supporting dioceses and theological colleges

We can tailor-make our resilience training and reflective practice group sessions to suit diocesan conferences and synods. Since 2017, over 1800 clergy have directly benefited from our resilience training and RPGs.

We work with theological colleges to advise and support the wellbeing of ordinands and their spouses.

​We offer a wellbeing session to every new bishop and dean appointed, to encourage them to think about their own and their clergy’s wellbeing in their new post. These sessions have been taken up by all 35 bishops and deans appointed since 2016.
