The Most Welcoming Place on Earth
Thank you to everyone who came along to our first Roofbreaker Event (April 2018). Around 50 people joined us for the day in Ashtead for...
Insightful Bible teaching by Rev Jonathan Edwards, who told us that “The church should be the most welcoming place on earth for people with disabilities,”
Inspiring personal testimony from 15 year-old Becky Tyler, who used eye gaze technology to compile her presentation and presented it through her voice synthesizer,
Humbling stories from Ros about the exceptional pastoral care she received from her church when her disabled daughter was born, and,
Interactive discussion groups to enable people to share their own stories and ideas to encourage one another.
We've had a lot of positive feedback from attendees, with people planning to go back to their churches and raise awareness, encourage inclusion, and encourage church leaders to keep improving. Plans are afoot for future events in other areas of the country - if you're interested in becoming a roofbreaker, you can find out more by following this link.
