People with Disabilities

A church, which does not have disabled people in it, is disabling itself.  It’s making itself poor in terms of experience, poor in terms of outlook, poor in terms of fellowship and poor in terms of the wonderful beautiful tapestry of diversity that God wants us to be.”  Pastor Malcolm Duncan

As a church we are passionate about enabling everyone, whatever their abilities, to come to know Jesus as their Lord and Saviour. 


Hope Street - Sunday morning children's group 

We have a wonderful group of volunteers to support children and young people with learning disabilities to access church life.  Depending on the level of need, children and young people are able to join existing groups within Hope Street with support while others are cared for individually.  All the families really value this level of support as it enables all family members to enjoy a full church experience.





The first Sunday of each month (except August and January) we offer WOW! - our Wide Open Worship service for people with disabilities and their family members and carers. 

This service is designed to encourage people with disabilities to discover and develop a faith in Jesus.

WOW! involves music, drama, dance, prayer, fellowship and our very popular afternoon tea all in a very relaxed atmosphere!  WOW! runs from 3-4.30pm in the HUB.  Everyone is welcome to come and experience the love and teachings of Jesus.
