Welcome to the Clergy Household Hub (CHH)

The Clergy Household Hub aims to help anyone who lives in a clergy household to feel at home in Exeter Diocese through information, support and connection. 

If you are a clergy spouse, partner or other family member, or living in a shared house with clergy, we are here to help. You can also contact us if you are a member of the clergy living alone or part of a clergy couple.

CHH 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:

  • InclusionMembers of a clergy household of any age, stage background and worldview can find support and signposting here. This includes on entry to the vocation or moving in to the Diocese.
  • RelationshipsThe Hub will offer proactive ways of welcoming, checking in, reaching out, remembering and connecting to reduce isolation and build community.
  • AcceptanceSome people 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 households which you might like to join. To find out more about CHH and to join the mailing list for information about events and other resources, please contact Richard Frost
