The Anglican Church Southern Queensland cares about the health and wellbeing of its clergy and staff and encourages all clergy and staff to nurture their own personal wellbeing.
Dimensions of wellbeing
Wellbeing is a multidimensional concept, requiring a multidimensional approach. The Parishes and Other Mission Agencies Commission (PMC) is developing curated wellbeing resources in a range of wellbeing areas. These areas (listed below) have been drawn from work undertaken in the Church of England in the area of clergy wellbeing.
