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

Why do you spend your money for that which is not bread, and your labor for that which does not satisfy? Listen carefully to me, and eat what is good, and delight yourselves in rich food. Incline your ear, and come to me; listen, so that you may live.

Isaiah 55:2f
