Holy Rood House

In 2018 we started a new partnership with the Holy Rood House Centre for Health and Pastoral Care in North Yorkshire. We support the uncovered costs of eligible beneficiaries who stay at Holy Rood House for pastoral, counselling or other support.


Sheldon (Mary and Martha)

Sheldon is an independent charity whose converted farm complex near Exeter is run by a lay community. It supports people in ministry and/or partners, especially at times of stress, crisis, burnout or breakdown. The specialist work is set within a more broadly based retreat and education framework. Individual units of accommodation are available for private retreats alongside a programme of led retreats and bespoke events like the 12,000-mile Service weeks and clergy family holiday weeks. We support Sheldon’s ministry (for eligible beneficiaries) with an annual grant.


The Sheldon Hub

An online community of practice for people in ministry of all denominations with a secure login and the option to contribute anonymously. Wide-ranging forum conversations cover everything from day to day practicalities of ministry (The Kitchen Table) to space for seeking urgent help from peers at difficult times (The Surgery). Good quality space online to complement the residential resources available at Sheldon.


Terrys Cross House

Terrys Cross House is a registered care home situated in the West Sussex countryside.  Retirement accommodation and care for those associated with the Church of England are given a priority (clergy, missionaries, their dependents and those associated).  Terrys Cross House also provides respite care, which can be useful for those requiring short-term care and support, particularly if recovering from a medical procedure.  We support a number of eligible residents in relation to their uncovered residential care costs, through a quarterly grant.


The College of St Barnabas

A residential community of retired Anglican clergy and church members, set in the countryside of Surrey.  The College offers a place of security for residents and includes nursing care, respite care and residential care.  We support a number of eligible residents in relation to their residential, care and nursing costs through an annual grant.
