Barrier-Free Belonging


Fearfully and Wonderfully Made: Barrier-Free Belonging

In July 2022, the Church of England's General Synod affirmed 'disabled people (with hidden as well as visible disabilities) to be fearfully and wonderfully made in the image and likeness of God, and mindful of the progress already made in removing some of the barriers which disabled people, clergy and lay, face; commit to working towards the removal of all remaining barriers to full participation for disabled people in the life and ministry of the church, and, in initiating that process.'

In this section, you will find a wide range of information, guidance, and tips to help remove barriers make our churches more welcoming, accessible and inclusive.  There is encouragement to explore your calling and vocation, and celebrate the contribution and ministry of disabled people. 

Please see further information under the main tab for this section.
