The Sensory Healthy Church

 

Welcome, value and integrate sensory needs into corporate worship and the life of the church.

For leaders and members alike.

"All nations whom you have made shall come and worship before you O Lord; and shall glorify your name."

Psalm 86:9 

Learn How Here

We did a global survey on sensory needs in the church, the results were surprising:

a pie chart with a statistic, "61% of survey respondents avoid church because their sensory needs aren't being met."

So what are sensory needs?

Sensory processing and integration issues (or sensory needs) are how we process and respond to sensory information from our environment and from inside our body. We develop our senses before anything else, even before birth, making it fundamental to how we behave in everyday life. Our processing might make us have extreme responses (under, over or fluctuating responses) to everyday stimuli like sounds, textures, or movements.

Sensory processing issues are often more significant in people with ADHD, Autism, DCD, Learning Disability, Anxiety or PDA, but are present in everyone in varying levels.

Sensory Needs in the Church

 

We want to make church life as accessible as possible for everyone.

If you're in leadership, by having a deeper dive into how sensory needs affect others, you can be even more effective in meeting those needs and help people thrive in the life of your church.

If you are living with sensory needs, then we can empower you to do what you can even if your church is still on it's journey to fully support you. 

For Leadership & Teams

Be supported to create a sensory environment that nourishes all visitors to your church and members in it.

Sensory needs look different for everyone.

And everyone processes their sensory needs in unique ways.

These are common signs that someone may need additional sensory support.

We all experience the world through our senses. Some people may feel overwhelmed, bored, or excluded due to lack of sensory input, too much input, fear of the environment, or no where to go to help them regroup and de-stress.

  • Do you have restless members during service?
  • Do families take it in turns to¬†attend church instead of coming together?
  • Are disruptive members inadvertently excluded?
  • Are you aware of¬†anyone staying away from church due to sensory needs?

This 3 hour online 'On Demand' programme is split into bitesize chunks!

It helps Christians identify the sensory struggles individuals, families and leaders face in corporate worship and in the life of the church, and present solutions according to needs identified, finances and space available to each individual congregation and family. 

A Resource for Church Leaders and Congregation Alike

 It let's everyone know they are valued, appreciated and belong in the life of the church.

It's church growth through compassion. 

‚ÄúThe Lord delights in those who fear him, who put their hope in his unfailing love‚ÄĚ Psalm 147:11
