SubstanQal societal changes over the past twenty years together with the professionalisaQon of the Church of England have greatly impacted the clergy role (Robbins & Francis, 2014). While clergy conQnue to gain a great deal of saQsfacQon and accomplishment from ministry (Francis et al., 2009), one third of all clerical sickness within the Church of England (CoE) is now due to stress, anxiety or other mental health issues (St Luke’s, 2010). Research exploring the aeQology of clergy WRPH indicates the fundamental role of relaQonal risk factors such as conflict & role expectaQons within the development of negaQve psychological health (Berry et al., 2012). PosiQve psychological health also relies on relaQonal variables including levels of support from family and congregaQon (Proeschold-Bell, 2015).
