(Still) Calling from the Edge

(Still) Calling from the Edge is our 10th annual conference on Disability & Church. It's a partnership between St Martin in the Fields and Inclusive Church, hosted online by HeartEdge.

Since 2012 these conferences have held space for disabled people to gather, to resource each other and the church. They are uniquely for rather than about disabled people, who are a majority of planners, speakers and delegates. We prioritise the voices of disabled people because they are rarely heard in church contexts, but warmly welcome family members, supporters and those with an interest in disability.

In this year's conference we explore call as challenge, lament and vocation. Through art, music, story and theology, in plenary talks, small groups, workshops and liturgy. It's a cry for justice that marks a milestone: 10 years of calling from the edge.

The programme includes: Storytellers - Sarah Davies & Jemma Brown. Workshops: Liberation theology - Hannah Lewis; Vocation - Tim Goode & Tim Rourke; Hymn-writing - June Boyce-Tillman; Challenging Power - Krysia Waldock & Dan Barnes Davies; Liturgy led by Emily Richardson. St Martin's will be well-represented in the keynote talk, Calling from the Edge, by Fiona MacMillan; Called to the Feast, an Art workshop imagining an inclusive Last Supper, led by Jonathan Evens, and Godly Play with Sam Wells.

Spaces are still available. Details and registration:
