Sun 18 Sep - Disability Awareness Sunday
Sunday 18th September 2022
Your local church
Let’s celebrate it in every church! “I feel alive! Valued for the disabled person I am. At last, I feel that I am in a space where I can grow as the person God made.”
This is what Sarah said about her sense of belonging at her church. She continued:
“They have accepted me for me (without the ‘what’s wrong with you’ conversation!).They have encouraged me to use my gifts, attend training, develop prayer resources; to dare to look at possibilities.”
Could your church do more to include disabled people and raise awareness?

This is a gospel issue:
· The last recorded survey suggests 90–95% of disabled people have never heard the gospel (Lausanne Committee for World Evangelisation, 2004).
· In the UK there are 14.6 million disabled people who need to know churches are supportive places, sharing God’s love (Family Resources Survey, 2021).
· Raise awareness and join Through the Roof to help ensure disabled people can fully belong and contribute as equal members of God’s family.
