Churches inc is one of the programmes of Through the Roof. It is all about valuing disabled people and encouraging churches that, in our experience, where disabled people are fully involved, not just as members of the congregation, but actively using their gifts and skills in church life, everyone is blessed as a result. The Bible says that each one of us has a part to play within the Body of the church and that includes people with personal experience of disability.
Our Churches inc programme serves churches in the following ways:
* Inclusivity charter - through this project, in partnership with Livability, we are encouraging churches and Christians to sign-up to the Churches inc charter to affirm what we believe, and to take action, together with and for disabled people. Why not download the charter by following this link (PDF file) and let us know your thoughts about it on our Facebook page.
* Publications and Resources - we offer on-line stories and articles, as well as selling books and publications relevant to the subject of disability from a Christian perspective - follow this link to visit the TTR shop.
* Training and Speaking - we have people with personal experience of disability who can speak at your church service or group. We also offer standard and bespoke training workshops
Churches inc wants to see churches enriched through the contributions that disabled people can offer - come and join us on the journey.
