Welcoming Children with Additional Support Needs

Join us and guest speaker Claire Neeson as we explore how we can make our churches more accessible for children with Additional Support Needs (ASN). Claire will share with us ways in which we can make the church environment more welcoming, creating a sacred space, looking at the language we use and how to make it more accessible and more. Join us and hear how a few simple changes can really make a difference.

The webinar is on Monday, 17th May at 7pm.  It is free but you can make a donation if you wish.
