Inclusive worship for anyone who has problems communicating and their carers

Anyone with a learning or physical disability, or living with dementia, may find it difficult to fit in to a conventional church service. That means that carers, too, miss out on the opportunity. 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 non-denominational services that attempt to be more 'user-friendly' for a learning or physically disabled audience. These services are also suitable for anyone, including those living with dementia, who has difficulty communicating and feels excluded or uncomfortable in traditional worship events.

We all use symbols in our everyday life - shortcuts to other items, to tell stories or to help explain something. Sometimes symbols are code - helping to keep a secret. The early church used symbols too, so they could tell who was on their side. Our service on 2nd June explores the world of symbols, it's going to be an interesting time!.
