    SOCCS Network (Support Of Chelmsford Clergy Spouses)

    There are a number of ways in which support is given in the Diocese, one of which is the SOCCS network and events are arranged each year, at diocesan and area level, for spouses of the clergy. Many value friendships begun at these events and built up over the years. We fully understand that you may not wish to attend - it is not obligatory!
