Anyone with a learning or physical disability, or living with dementia, may find it difficult to fit in to a conventional church service. That means that carers, too, miss out on the opportunity. The language is often old-fashioned and complicated. The sermons are too long. The music and hymns are difficult to follow and understand. Physical access and accessibility are often difficult. There is little space in the pews and aisles and often very little opportunity to actively participate.
Just4u aims to change that, at least in our local community, by providing regular non-denominational services that attempt to be more 'user-friendly' for a learning or physically disabled audience. These services are also suitable for anyone, including those living with dementia, who has difficulty communicating and feels excluded or uncomfortable in traditional worship events.
We are starting a new series of services for this new year, and in each we will look at various stages in the life of Jesus. For the first one we go back to the time around his birth. What did Mary, Joseph and the baby Jesus have to put up with in those weeks and months? Made to go to Bethlehem to register for the Roman census. No place to stay, so a stable was where they rested. Worshipped by shepherd and angels. Visited by wise men from far away. Forced to run for their lives to a foreign country....
