Through The Roof 

 We all know the story of the paralysed man lowered through the roof to get to Jesus and I give thanks for ramps and better access into our churches so that doesn’t have to happen in our cluster!

But there are many disabilities in our community that go un-noticed.  Barriers to attending and participating in Church services and events.  There is more that we can do to help.  Being aware of any issues is the first step.  For some people they don’t want to make a fuss, so just stop coming to church.  Perhaps there is someone in your congregation whom you haven’t seen for a while?  Perhaps you need to ask why? Perhaps you are the person experiencing difficulties but don’t know who to tell?
I recently came across the charity ‘Through the Roof’.  It is a Christian disability charity that do many things including; building a network of Roof Breakers and advocates through training and resources to break down the barriers faced by disabled people in Christian life.  Click here for more details:  Through the Roof

I had an inspiring talk with them on the phone, they are looking for Roof Breaker champions in each parish or cluster, a  point of contact and someone to sign up on the website to access the disability tool kit,  and to set up a free zoom workshop ‘Removing barriers’.  This can be tailored to our needs and will look at the message our churches are giving.  There is also a network of local Roof Breaker Champions who meet regularly to support each other.   This looks a wonderful organisation to be part of and a great opportunity.
Perhaps this is a role you could take on?  In your church or for the cluster. To be the person who notices someone struggling and helps them overcome that challenge. To point out to the rest of us what needs changing.  If you are interested, see here for more details: Roofbreakers - Through the Roof  and let me know  so that I can co-ordinate the long list of volunteers!

Planning your Visit

A Warm Hello


Where and When

What you can be sure of is a warm welcome at whichever church you decide to visit.  Refreshments will be on offer either before or after the service.

What about my kids?

Children's groups at St Mary’s Callington on Sundays are temporarily suspended due to unforeseen circumstances.  However, there will always be an activity for children to do, a place for them in all 11am services at and the Tower Room is available for play and fun throughout.  


Getting Connected


Life Groups

While Sundays are a great way to meet new people, it is often in smaller gatherings that you can really get to know someone. Being part of one of our small groups allows you to make new friends, share together and support each other. We have a variety of groups that meet throughout the week, some afternoons and some evenings. We can put you in touch with a small group leader who will be more than happy to invite you along to their group.

Get on a Team!

Serving on a team is a greatly way of getting to know people better.  If you want to get involved in the life of the church and to help us make Sundays run smoothly, you can sign up to serve on a team.
