House for Duty Priests

'House for Duty' is an arrangement whereby a priest can live in a Parsonage House in exchange for carrying out certain duties in a parish, but without receiving a stipend.

This may suit a minister on a pension (church or otherwise), or a self-supporting minister who receives an income in some other way, which allows time for ministry.

It is vital that anyone exploring this opportunity should be able to assure themselves and the Archdeacon that they have sufficient income to afford to live under these circumstances.

Contributed by the Revd Sarah Hutton, Spiritual Growth Facilitator for the diocese

But you do see! Indeed you note trouble and grief, that you may take it into your hands; the helpless commit themselves to you.

Psalm 10:14
