We have been working with several partner organisations for a while as we care for the clergy and their families.
The largest Christian publisher in the UK and the third oldest British publishing house operating today. Their aim is to make Christian ideas and values relevant and accessible to people of all faiths and none. Today, they publish quality books and resources under SPCK Publishing, IVP UK, Marylebone House and Sheldon Press. We work in partnership with SPCK, funding a free online resource, the Ordinand Library.
Sheldon is a retreat house formed of a cluster of converted farm buildings, situated in the countryside, just outside Exeter. Their specialist work involves supporting people in Christian ministry, especially at times of stress, crisis, burnout or breakdown. It is run by a resident lay Christian Community assisted by staff and volunteers. The retreat runs a number of specific programmes, including the 12,000-mile service, which we support with an annual grant.
Terrys Cross is a registered care home situated in the West Sussex countryside. Retirement accommodation and care for those associated with the Church of England are given a priority (clergy, missionaries, their dependents and those associated). Terrys Cross House also provides respite care, which can be useful for those requiring short-term care and support, particularly if recovering from a medical procedure. We support a number of residents towards their residential care costs, through a quarterly grant.
A residential community of retired Anglican clergy and church members, set in the countryside of Surrey. The College offers a place of security for residents and includes nursing care, respite care and residential care. We support a number of residents towards their residential, care and nursing costs through an annual grant.www.st-barnabas.org.uk
