‘When the disabled are missing, the Christian community itself becomes disabled.’ (The World Council of Churches)

We seek to further develop our work in this area:

  • making sure churches are properly equipped and supported to help welcome disabled people into their communities, as well as
  • making sure disabled people themselves are valued equally, fully included, and able to contribute their gifts and skills.

There are already many fantastic people and projects dedicated to the ministry of deaf and disabled people, and many have links within the Diocese. Information about them can be found in the useful links and resources section of this page.
