Adults with Learning Disabilities
Over the past few years we have welcomed into our community a growing number adults who experience a range of learning difficulties, who each play an active role within our church community, serving on our various teams and worshipping with the wider church body. That said, we realised that some of what we ‘do’ as gathered church is difficult for these individuals to access.
In response to this need, in the autumn of 2015 we established Disciples, a group which meets each Sunday evening up in the tower room during the time that the sermon is being preached. Led by Jon Stubberfield and the team, Disciples aims to unpack scripture in ways that are both fun and accessible. It’s been a wonderful journey for the group, where each member has grown in faith and the team have in turn been learning from those they are serving.
If you know of someone who would benefit from a group of this nature, please do send them our way, they would be so welcome.
