Disability inclusion in churches is more than ramps and accessible toilets… it’s about belonging, feeling valued and being able to contribute.

These events will include real-life stories from disabled people and encourage more stories to be told. Jesus is working in and through the lives of disabled people – let’s spread the message of the importance of disability inclusion throughout our churches.

There will be British Sign Language interpreters at all events.

Various speakers

Tickets are £10 each, or £7.50 each (plus booking fee) if you book for two or more attendees. Bring a friend!

We really want to encourage more people to become Roofbreakers in your churches so we will be giving the ‘Be a Roofbreaker’ publication (worth £5) to any Roofbreakers attending, or anyone who signs-up on the day. Please think about becoming a Roofbreaker yourself, or encouraging someone at your church to do so. Information and ongoing support will be provided by Through the Roof and through networks of Roofbreakers. Let’s work together to make churches more welcoming and inclusive for disabled people.

For more information, or to order over the phone, contact us at 01372 749955 or email Jan at Through the Roof jan@throughtheroof.org

Refreshments provided, but please bring your own lunch.
