Clergy Retirement

The transition into retirement is never easy, but for clergy a little more planning and preparation may be required, especially where housing and finances are concerned.

All clergy are encouraged to begin planning at least five years before the date their preferred retirement date. The Diocese of Blackburn is hoping to make the transition into retirement as easy as possible.

The Diocese of Blackburn will be teaming up with Ecclesiastical Insurance to deliver a one day conference that will include seminars from clergy housing and pensions, along with group and 1:1 guidance to help relieve any worries regarding retirement. Coffee-breaks and lunch will be provided free of charge to all attendees.

As this is the Diocese of Blackburn's first retirement conference for clergy, spaces for this day are limited. If you are interested in this course, please book as soon as possible to avoid missing out.
