Many disabled people face barriers to getting in and joining in churches and communities. How can we unlock gates and open gifts? How can we change the church- where we are, with what we have?
Since 2012, this annual conference has held space for disabled people- to gather, to resource each other and the church. It’s a partnership between St Martin-in-the-Fields & Inclusive Church, working #withnotfor disabled people.

Still Calling From the Edge 2021
This year’s conference is entitled ‘Still Calling From the Edge’ and takes place online on the 16th October 2021. Booking and more information is on the Eventbrite page. In addition to the main conference in October, there are two pre-conference online events. The first is ‘Out of the Depths’ and is a music-based workshop. The second is ‘Called to the Feast’ and is an art-based workshop.
The booklet ‘Something Worth Sharing’ is available to download for free. It contains ideas, responses and resources from our 2018 conference. It explores access and theology, language and structures, communication and participation.
The booklet ‘Calling from the Edge’ celebrating the first 5 conferences is also available to download. This booklet and ‘Something Worth Sharing’ have been made possible thanks to the generous support of the Westhill Foundation.
