Retirement into a pension board house worked out to not be as helpful as we thought.
We had a terrible summer. We had 3 back-to-back bereavements and one of our parents had a mental health crisis.
I am so thankful to Clergy Support Trust for the help and support they have shown me. Their help has literally changed my life.
The finance has also helped at some difficult times in ministry, especially with mental health challenges faced along the way.
I am a rector in a busy urban/rural setting and the only cleric. As a result, there are many demands on my time.
We really struggle to save up money at the moment with just my stipend.
