How safe and welcome is our church for those with disabilities?
Well, you might say, “We have a ramp, and a disabled loo.” Good start. But God longs for those with disabilities of all kinds to flourish and take part in our community fully. It’s about so much more than just door widths and hearing loops, valuable though these things are. Many disabilities are not visible: how can we welcome and encourage those who tread a different path through life but still long to serve, worship and learn what God has in store.
Alice Kemp, Disability Advisor for the Diocese of Bristol, brings us facts, issues and first hand accounts from her wealth of professional and personal experience.
“It’s about so much more than just door widths and hearing loops”
All are welcome to this free training evening, whether you have responsibilities in the church for some aspect of life such as leadership, children’s work, welcome, or whether you just long to see Jesus’ attitudes and actions more fully realised here. The evening is open to anyone from the local churches.
We will make a collection to a disability charity of Alice’s choice on the night.
