About this Event

Come join us as we gather together church leaders, theologians, and lay people to discuss the ways that disability opens up new patterns for Christian thought and practice.

NTC is collaborating with the University of Manchester to host Professor Brian Brock from the University of Aberdeen, one of the leading voices working on disability and Christianity today, to guide this conversation about disability. Together with Brian, we will be exploring matters of faith, personhood, and community through workshops, seminars, and lectures.
