Disability faith stories we all need to hear
Many churches struggle with the right language, welcome and inclusion for people living with disability so Christian charity, Through the Roof, is organising one-day workshops to help. These events will offer new ideas and resources, and share powerful stories of how God is being glorified through disabled people…stories the whole church needs to hear.
Disability Inclusion in our Churches is more than ramps and accessible toilets… it’s about belonging, feeling valued and being able to contribute. ‘Disability Inclusion in our Churches’ are one-day events to equip churches and disabled people to serve Christ together. Suitable for anyone with roles and responsibilities in church life, and those with a desire to see churches more welcoming and inclusive for disabled people, delegates will benefit from:
- Inspiring real-life faith stories
- New ideas and resources
- Inclusive experience
- Free publication (for those who sign-up to be a Roofbreaker in their church)
One attendee from the corresponding event last year commented, “This was a most wonderful few hours of learning how our churches can be more inclusive”. Another enthused, “Thank you, one of the best training days I’ve been to for ages.”
Dates and venues are as follows…
1st February, 10.30 am – 3.30 pm – St. George’s Christian Centre, Barnett Wood Lane, Ashtead KT21 2DA

All will be well: finding restoration in Christ
Art & spirituality day for Lent, led by Caroline Marwood.
Friday 28th February, 10am – 4pm.
This creative day will examine the theme of suffering and restoration through a variety of readings and reflections. We will then use the medium of relief printmaking to respond to this theme. Tuition will be
given and all materials will be supplied. You will create an original piece art to take home with you.
The day will be facilitated by Caroline Marwood who is a fine art printmaker and mixed media artist. She exhibits her work permanently at the Shoreline Gallery in St Ives and at a wide variety of open exhibitions as well as opening her studio annually as part of Cornwall Open Studios. She is a member of the St Ives
Arts Club and the Artist in residence at St Ives parish Church.
The day is suitable for both beginners and experienced printmakers.

Worshipping Friends is a registered charity based in Cornwall and a collective of worshippers and musicians from around the South West. “Simply loving God, going as He leads and playing a part in the restoration of night and day worship in the nations.”
We believe practising the Greatest Commandment, loving God with our all, is our highest honour and the most significant act here on earth. He moves powerfully through the praise and worship of His people. We love to gather, linking with local churches, for extended times of worship. Giving Him all the glory and space to do what only He can do in hearts, households, communities and localities.
From Friday 3rd January to Saturday 11 th January we are excited to gather for 8 days of continuous worship. Worshippers and musicians from across the county gathering together to simply fix our eyes on Jesus, lift up His Name and say ‘Yes and Amen’ to all He has for Cornwall and our nation.

All are welcome to pop in for as little or as much time as suits, whether it’s to sit and be or join us in singing His praise. We understand there are many different styles and expressions of worship throughout the church and these gatherings could be described as informal, contemporary and prophetic worship. Worshippers and musicians release hymns, psalms, new songs, loving and honouring God and loving and honouring each other as we stand together in corporate worship.For more details check out our facebook page:

This year the Cathedral Advent Course will be an opportunity for all those who wish to ‘Ponder’ the Gospels together. The course has been written by the Rev’d Rachel Monie and is titled ‘Reflections on the Divine through Advent’ where the events of Advent and Christmas will be pondered with the help of a number of different Icons. In a way this will be a good confessional supplement to the ‘Windows into Christian Art Course’ that took place in September.
The 4-week course takes place in the Assembly Hall of the Old Cathedral School.
Free to attend and no need to book.
Please join us at our carol service at Truro Cathedral this December to launch our Christmas Appeal.
