Disability, Wholeness and Christian Theology

1 in 6 of our UK population has one or more disability

‘I really genuinely think we have had a seismic effect in shifting public attitudes … I don’t think they will ever see disability in the same way again.’ Lord Sebastian Coe speaking at the closing Ceremony of the London 2012

If the London 2012 Paralympics changed the way we think about disability – what difference has it made to our churches? If this challenges you then here is the conference for you. Book now.

Keynote speakers, expert talks, panel sessions, speakers with disabilities.

The full day programme will include exploration of biblical perspective on disability and practical discussions about making your church’s ministry and mission more accessible to disabled people. A day packed with insights and ideas, talks and dialogue.

Presented by Churches for All with Premier Christian Radio
