Clergy Home Insurance

As a member of the clergy, your vocation means you need to keep an open door for your congregation and community - but this can present extra risks for your home contents. 

That’s why we have enhanced the cover we provide to the clergy in our home contents insurance. Plus, if you are paid a Church Of England stipend you may also  get an additional discount depending on where you live. 

Just make sure you enter your title as Revd when completing an online quote.
