Pastoral Supervision Programme

First published on: 21st July 2021

As part of our serious commitment to clergy care and wellbeing and in line with the Covenant for Clergy Care and Wellbeing, six clergy have been selected to undertake training to equip them to provide pastoral supervision to groups of clergy in Manchester Diocese.

Following Bishop David’s letter to all licensed clergy inviting applications, we are delighted to announce that the following have been selected to participate in a part-time, one-year training programme to be provided by The Institute of Pastoral Supervision & Reflective Practice.

Once trained, the dedicated team will provide pastoral supervision to groups of clergy in the diocese. The aim is for the team to be fully trained and able to provide support from the middle of 2022.
