The Weight of this Calling: Clergy Burnout, Wellbeing and Resilience : 21 Jan, ONLINE

January 21, 2021 | 5:00 pm 7:00 pm

Thursday 21 January 2021, 5-7pm

Is ministry burnout inevitable? Can self-sacrificial living ever be viable? Or, do clergy, in fact, have it better than most when it comes to work-life balance?

In this webinar we’ll explore what it means to build resilience. Parish ministry comes with its own particular challenges and anxieties. How do you avoid emotional exhaustion and burnout? 

And in the context of a pandemic – where significant numbers of clergy have reported increased stress, fatigue and exhaustion – what does truly sustainable ministry look like?

Our expert panel will look at what churches are doing to support their clergy, how parishes can help, and what needs to change. This Church Times webinar will focus specifically on clergy well-being, however anyone, lay or ordained, and from any denomination, is welcome to attend.
