We are excited to share that this year at Catalyst Festival, we will be welcoming our friends from Prospects to come and be with us for one day on Sunday 29th May.
Prospects are the leading Christian organisation for people with learning disabilities and their families, equipping volunteers from churches across the UK to offer accessible worship and Bible teaching to people with learning disabilities in locally run ministry groups. You can find out more about their charity and what they do here. (www.prospects.org.uk)
They will be leading sessions on ‘The Family of God’ designed specifically, but not exclusively, for adults with learning disabilities and autism. These sessions will include sensitively-led worship, uncomplicated teaching and opportunities to take part in prayer, drama, art, craft and much more.
*Seminar at 2:30pm on Why Get Involved?
- The Holy Spirit gives gifts and abilities to all Christians
- If people with disabilities are absent from our churches, then the church is incomplete
- What can we do to make our churches more welcoming and accepting of disabled people, especially those with learning disabilities?
