Six Ways Ministers T.H.R.I.V.E. … during a pandemic 

The national ministry team of the Church of England is conducting a ten-year research project, Living Ministry, exploring how ordained ministers flourish in ministry. The THRIVE model provides six strategies encapsulating some of the key findings from the first wave of this study. Although they have emerged from the specific experiences of clergy, we are also concerned for the wellbeing of lay ministers and hope they too will find these helpful. Given that, during the Covid-19 pandemic, many people will see most or all of these six areas disrupted, it is hardly surprising that our physical, mental, spiritual, vocational, relational and material wellbeing will be threatened. The challenge is to find ways to recreate these elements as we adapt to the current circumstances. To read more about Living Ministry Research click here:
