Professional Supervision

Professional Supervision

Professional supervision provides a safe space for clergy and lay ministers to explore ministry issues and reflect on aims, vocation and wellbeing.

All clergy and stipendiary lay ministers are encouraged to receive regular supervision of their work and ministry from a qualified professional supervisor of their choice.

More and more churches are becoming aware of the need for and benefits of professional supervision for those engaged in ministry.


Who does professional
supervision benefit?
  • Those called to minister.
  • Those who are being ministered to.
  • The wider spiritual community.
