Clergy Support Trust has been my constant companion as I’ve lived out my vocation as a priest in the Church of England.

They’ve been there to help numerous times, whether it was an emergency grant for a washing machine, the gift of a special family holiday or counselling at a time of change

One of the biggest differences the Trust has made to my family’s wellbeing was being able to go on a special trip away to Centre Parcs, thanks to a holiday grant.

It meant so much to us and we will forever have memories of that special time to keep us going, not to mention it being much-needed rest and relaxation together.

The Grants and Services Officer I usually speak to is so thoughtful and discreet, helping me to navigate the application process easily. I’m dyslexic and so I usually have a natural aversion to paperwork, but they took me through the process step by step.

Priests are often thought of as invincible, or at least like to think they are, but being there for others all the time is often lonely.

I’m grateful to have a friend in the Clergy Support Trust – thank you.
