Inclusive Church

Here at Portholme Church, we firmly believe that ALL people are of equal value to God and we want all people to be equally able to participate fully in the life of Portholme Church. That's EVERYONE, no exceptions.

You really matter to us and we look forward to getting to know you. This is more than just words on a web page, you can read about some of the things we are doing here.

Positive About Disability Inclusion logoFurthermore, we have partnered with Through the Roof's Rookbreakers project. You can find our page on their website here. This partnership gives us access to training and resources so we can begin to break down some of the barriers that may prevent disabled people from fully taking part in church life.
Have you got a story to share? Tell us, via our contact page, about your experiences of church. How can we help to make that experience better?
