Welcome to the Clergy Household Hub (CHH)

The Clergy Household Hub aims to help families, spouses and partners of clergy to feel at home in Exeter Diocese through information, support and connection. 

It is run by a volunteer group of clergy spouses and partners with support and oversight from the Diocese of Exeter’s Wellbeing Panel. 

The Clergy Household Hub is based on:

Inclusion A clergy spouse or partner of any age, stage background and worldview can find support and signposting here. This includes on entry to the vocation or on entry to the Diocese.

Relationships The Hub will offer proactive ways of welcoming, checking in, reaching out, remembering and connecting can reduce isolation and build community.

Acceptance Some will be looking for spiritual support, some for a space to have fun. If it is important enough for someone to look for it, it is important for us too.

Throughout the year the hub will organise events for clergy household members to get together. Do contact your area rep if you would like someone to talk to about any aspect of clergy household life.

There is also a Facebook Group for Devon clergy spouses and partners which you might like to join. To find out more about CHH, please contact Richard Frost.
