People who care for others Often fail to take care of themselves
We know that working in Christian ministry is not a 9-to-5 Monday-to-Friday job. It impacts your whole life. And it impacts your family and other relationships too. It can be costly physically, emotionally and spiritually.
A good peer support programme is a great way to help your team do this.
Workplace relationships can be a cause of strife and make existing problems worse. Or they can boost morale and help staff meet challenges. A peer support programme can help make that difference.

We Understand the Challenges you Face, and can help support you through them
We have worked with Christian mission and ministry organisations all over the world. Our philosophy of care is based on our Christian understanding of what it means to be made in the image of God and loved by him. We believe that health is not just about the absence of physical disease, but it is about being well in body, mind and spirit, and thriving in our calling and ministries. We understand the importance of vocation, and how this impacts life and work. We have a specialist team of Christian doctors, nurses, occupational health specialists, counsellors and psychologists, experienced in providing holistic care for those in Christian ministry. This Service List explains the services we provide to those in Church and Christian ministry.
“Our staff operate in some of the most isolated places in the world and we want to ensure they have the best medical and psychological support. Thrive provides exactly what we need. Whether before, during or after assignment, we have total confidence in the support and guidance that they give us.”
