Event Details

More Than Welcome
 
This course will train your church respond to the challenge of disability. Whether it’s members of the youth group who have autism, older people with sight or hearing loss, people with learning disabilities or families struggling to care for a relative with dementia, every church has members affected by disability.

Why More than Welcome?

Despite one in six people in the UK experiencing disability, all too often churches don’t know how to respond. And those who do, can find themselves stuck in old, unhelpful ways of doing things.  Together we will explore what it means to become a church where everyone can belong – one that doesn’t just welcome disabled people, but includes them within church life, and encourages them to grow and participate.
 
We will be discussing questions like:
  • What does the Bible really say about disability?
  • What are the barriers that prevent disabled people coming to your church?
  • How can we develop our prayer, worship and teaching to be more inclusive? What would that look like?
  • How can we ensure that disabled people’s gifts are recognised and encouraged?

Who is it for?
 
More than Welcome is for those looking for practical support, inspiration and guidance on how to understand the needs of disabled people in their congregation, as well as those who want to consider what it takes to support the full participation of disabled people in their church.  
 
Where will it be?
 
St Bartholomew's Church, Lower Cam, GL11 5JX. The church has recently undergone a significant building project to make the space more accessible, and church members will share their experiences of welcome.
 
When will it be?
 
Saturday 12th October 2019, 9.30am refreshments and registration for a prompt start at 10am, until 3.30pm.

How much does it cost?

This event is £20 per person with a discount of £5 per person for groups of 2 or more.  A bursary may be available - please contact us if you would find it difficult to pay this amount.

Refreshments and a light lunch will be provided.
