LUKE14 WORKSHOPS

Luke14 offers five interactive workshops to equip churches with practical ideas, skills and strategies for including people with disabilities. These exciting workshops include a variety of multi-media inputs to spark discussion.

Luke14 workshops are not designed to make people ‘disability experts’, but to understand practical ways to accommodate different needs in the church. Each workshop includes the fundamental beliefs of Christian disability ministry, and time to work on next steps.

A single workshop would run well as a short day event, or two workshops could be combined over one longer day.

The 5 Workshops

 1. DISABILITY 101: Foundations for Enabling the Church

The basics for beginning disability ministry in your church, including understanding disability, the Disability Discrimination Act, biblical foundations, etiquette tips and respectful language

2. MAKING DISCIPLES OF ALL: Faith Connections for Adults with Intellectual Disability

Practical and inclusive teaching and learning strategies

3. INCLUSION TOOLBOX FOR KIDS AND TEENS: Nuts and Bolts of Accessible Ministry

Including welcoming kids with autism spectrum disorders, managing challenging behaviours, providing sibling and parent support, promoting peer acceptance, adapting curriculum, and establishing a buddy system

4. MENTAL HEALTH UNWRAPPED: Resourcing the Church to Support Mental Wellness

How churches and Christian friends can provide pastoral care and  support for people experiencing mental illness

See the Luke 14 video The Gift Of Art – Jenny Nicholls.











5. INCLUSIVE OUTREACH: Inspiring Models of Community Connection

Inspiring and helpful ways to connect with people with a disability and disability service providers in your local area.
