At Livability, we love to see inclusive church services, that welcome and support each person.
Providing accessible approaches to congregational worship and teaching is a vital part of this and Livability supports over 200 church groups around the country that are working for accessible church.
Many started their life as part of ‘Prospects for people with learning disabilities’ – a charity that merged with Livability in 2016.
The groups are all very different – as they reflect the needs of the group members, and the local context. Some groups meet on Sunday afternoons, some during the evenings and others meet for at lunchtime mid-week.
Some groups are called Prospects, some are called Causeway, or a unique name they have chosen for themselves. Some groups eat together, some do craft activities. Most groups enjoy singing together and learning about the Christian faith.
Livability can help you to set up a group in your church. We hold regular training days, and write teaching and worship materials that you can use with a your group. We can also put you in touch with other groups nearby for support and encouragement.
