Interesting work in Salisbury

I'm part of the Well Being Group in Salisbury Diocese (Church of England). I attended one of their regular meetings yesterday. We're concerned with making good provision of support for church ministers through coaching, mentoring, spirtual direction, sailing... (you name it!).

It's a challenging time for the Church of England at the moment. There's a big culture change that we're seeking to implement, partly driven by government legislation. This changes the way that dioceses have to relate to and support clergy - in a way that is closer to a conventional employment relationship. Procedures have to be tightened up, and as always with imposed change there is an opportunity to make the most of it to improve both results and the well being of staff.

One of the mottos of the group is a quote from Irenaeus: “The glory of God is a human being fully alive.”
