Description

Creating Compassionate Communities of Inclusion: Enabling and Disabling Theology and Practice

This conference will explore various approaches to creating inclusive community and belonging, through the lens of disability. We will consider how theology can infuse our thinking about vulnerability and limitation, and how the language of gift, grace and interdependence can inform our practice. Through plenary conversation, workshops and group discussions, and with contributions from various agencies who work in this area, participants will be encouraged to consider how they might collaborate with others to create compassionate communities of inclusion.

The keynote speaker is the Revd Prof Frances Young, Emeritus Professor of Theology at the University of Birmingham and author of Arthur’s Call: A Journey of Faith in the Face of Severe Learning Disability.

Places are free of charge and include lunch, refreshments and post conference drinks.
