Events planned to help disability inclusion in churches
Many churches struggle with the right language, welcome and inclusion for people living with disability so Christian charity, Through the Roof, is organising one-day workshops to help.
These events will offer new ideas and resources, and share powerful stories of how God is being glorified through disabled people … stories the whole church needs to hear.
Disability Inclusion in our Churches is more than ramps and accessible toilets … it’s about belonging, feeling valued and being able to contribute.
Disability Inclusion in our Churches are one-day events to equip churches and disabled people to serve Christ together. Suitable for anyone with roles and responsibilities in church life, and those with a desire to see churches more welcoming and inclusive for disabled people, delegates will benefit from:
- Inspiring real-life faith stories
- New ideas and resources
- Inclusive experience
- Free publication (for those who sign-up to be a Roofbreaker in their church)
One attendee from the corresponding event last year commented, “This was a most wonderful few hours of learning how our churches can be more inclusive". Another enthused, "Thank you, one of the best training days I’ve been to for ages."
