stipendiary

Non-stipendiary priest

Non-stipendiary priests or non-stipendiary ministers (NSMs) are religious ministers who do not receive payment for their services, and who usually have alternative employment which provides monetary income with which they can support themselves.

They are frequently found in parishes across England, and the current Bishop of Ebbsfleet—the Rt. Revd. Andrew Burnham—was previously an NSM.
