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?

Disability Conferences

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.
