Welcoming families with additional needs at Christ Church Armley

Representatives from churches across the diocese have been meeting together to examine  ways to help churches become more welcoming to families with additional needs.  A ground-breaking gathering of disability representatives at Church House, the Leeds office of the Diocese of Leeds heard some of the difficulties facing families who have children with disabilities and additional needs and how sometimes churches are ill-equipped to offer support. As part of the morning a film was shown at the meeting, made at Christ Church, Armley  where the congregation has developed facilities to help those with additional needs.
