Retired Clergy

The ministry of retired clergy is a vitally important part of the life of the diocese and our work together.

We have two Clergy Retirement Officers (one for each Archdeaconry) who offer pastoral support and encourage the exploration of new ministry opportunities. They enable networks of friendship, support and encouragement affirming the value of all retiring clergy and their spouses as well as a doorway to exploring what God calls for next.

Please get in touch especially if you are feeling isolated or if you have retired into The Diocese of Blackburn from another diocese and await a welcome.
