One Year to Go

The world’s third largest sporting event – the Paralympics – is now only one year away from coming to the UK. The event will shine the spotlight on disabled people and give our churches an unprecedented opportunity to demonstrate God’s inclusive heart.

The Paralympics will demonstrate that disabled men and women have God-given gifts to share. Through the Roof is planning to play its part by resourcing Christians and churches to more fully engage with disabled people’s gifts to enrich our communities. We have a few new things up our sleeve so to make sure you don’t miss out on them, why not become a friend on our Facebook page, contact us to receive our free Vital Link newsletter, and keep checking back to our website.

Paralympic tickets go on sale on 9th September so why not make a booking to see the action. The day before, 8th September 2011, is International Paralympics Day, so why not use it to pray for our UK Paralympians, in particular those who have a Christian faith that they can be a blessing to those around them.
