Inclusive worship for the learning disabled and their carers
Anyone with a learning disability may find it difficult to fit in to
a conventional church service. The language is often old-fashioned and complicated. The sermons are too long. The music and hymns
are difficult to follow and understand. Physical access and accessibility are often difficult. There is little space in the pews and
aisles and often very little opportunity to actively participate.
Just4u aims to change that, at least in our local community, by
providing regular services that attempt to be more 'user-friendly' for a learning disabled audience. These services are also suitable
for anyone who has difficulty communicating and feels excluded in normal worship events
is an attempt to provide appropriate all-ability worship facilities to those with a wide variety of learning disabilities (and none) and to their carers.
This allows us to make a distinctive and substantial impact for our clients, who may otherwise be excluded from, or feel uncomfortable in, conventional church services
