Event description

Description

A 5-week course in Lent considering how the church can grow towards interdependence for all, exploring what the Bible says about disability, and how faith and church affects the lives of people with disability. Can we move beyond welcome?

Each evening we will gather first around the bible, as we discuss and consider how the bible speaks about aspects of disability. We will follow this by hearing the experiences of people who are either disabled or carers. Each evening will begin and end in prayer.

The topics covered will be; language and disability; Disabilities of the body; disabilities of the mind; healing and cure; and we will end with What is the church going to do.

Speakers include

Michael Wenham; author of “My Donkey Body” and “I choose everything”

Mark Arnold; Additional Needs Ministry Director at Urban Saints and co-founder of the Additional-Needs-Alliance
