Disability inclusive & accessible Christmas church services and events in Shrewsbury

Many people like to go to a Carol Service in the lead up to Christmas. SDN member, Phil Ramsbotham has put together a list of events you may be interested in. As Phil says ” They all aim to be as inclusive and accessible as possible.

  • “Joyful Noise” takes place at Christ Church, Bayston Hill, Glebe Road, Bayston Hill, Shrewsbury SY3 0PZ  on 17th November and 15th December , between 2.30 – 4 pm (every 3rd Sunday of the month) . Joyful Noise enables children with additional needs and their families to encounter the Christian message by engaging in physical activity such as parachute games, obstacle courses, music, sensory play and dance. Time together is rounded up with drinks and cakes including gluten and dairy free options. Alongside welcoming children’s noise and activity they also provide a chill tent for those seeking space and quiet. Joyful Noise is an evolving venture; we are very willing to learn from families so please do come along and share your ideas.
