Making Church Accessible For All

[Mental Health Chapter written by Jonathan Clark]

 
A church that is better for disabled people is better for everybody.
 
Making Church Accessible to All provides a strong argument for rethinking the way we present church. Working from the biblical basis for including people with disabilities, Tony Phelps-Jones considers the obstacles that church can put in the way and the practicalities of establishing an effective ministry. The book includes examples of inclusive teaching and worship, together with sections focusing on the following areas: learning disabilities, autism, sight loss, hearing loss, mobility difficulty, mental health conditions and families with children with additional needs.
