Prospects meeting – Thur 21st June

Would you like to learn more about supporting people with learning disabilities in their Christian faith and life?

Then please come along to a Prospects meeting at Bethel on Thursday 21st June, 7pm.

Prospects is a Christian organisation that enables adults with learning disabilities to live their lives to the full. We do this by:

  1. Providing distinctly Christian, professional support to people with learning disabilities so they can choose a Christian lifestyle if they wish
  2. Training, resourcing and equipping local churches to reach out and minister effectively among people with learning disabilities .

A presentation on the social care process will be given as part of the evening. Churches, parents and carers are all most welcome.
