Disability Sunday 2015 is 5th July
… a day for UK churches and fellowships to focus on celebrating the abilities of disabled people
(or if 5 July does suit your church calendar choose another Sunday!)
Here what Tim Wood, CEO of Through the Roof has to say about Disability Sunday …
‘A recent survey by SCOPE revealed that 67% of people admit to avoiding disabled people. Often, this stems from anxiety about unwittingly offending or encountering needs one cannot meet.
When Through the Roof surveyed disabled people about their experience of church, their greatest heart-cry was a longing for real, deep, reciprocal friendships between disabled Christians and their fellow church members.
In response to these findings, the theme of Disability Sunday this year will be friendship. We will be encouraging churches to explore what the Bible says about friendship, and demonstrate how building deep friendships with disabled people will transform not only their lives, but the whole church and ultimately the world.
‘The Disability Sunday Resource Pack contains helpful information on how to do this, as well as a quiz, discussion activity, a selection of sermon outlines, drama script, video download link, suggested song list and children’s activities.’
