Since our founding in 1655, the charity’s principal activity has been to make financial gifts to clergy and their households where there is particular hardship or need. Please follow the links to find out more about the gifts we currently have available.


Alongside the joys of a calling to ordination there can be many issues which affect clergy wellbeing. Sons & Friends is at the early stages of developing programmes that aim to promote and sustain the wellbeing of clergy and their dependants. We are keen to hear from anyone who is concerned about clergy wellbeing and pass on their ideas for effective programmes that can help.   

The 364th Festival of the Sons & Friends of the Clergy will take place on Tuesday 15th May 2018 at St Paul's Cathedral.
More information about the Festival will follow, in the New Year.
