Break that’s rough on ministries (12)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

intermission

Here is my best explanation:

'break' is the definition.

('intermission' can be a synonym of 'break')

'rough on ministries' is the subsidiary indication.

'rough' is an anagram indicator.

'on'+'ministries'='onministries'

'onministries' with letters rearranged gives 'intermission'.

'that's' is the link.

This clue was last seen in The Times

(Other definitions for intermission that I've seen before include "Interval", "Entr'acte", "Theatre's half-time", "Pause, break" and "Break".)
