LOVE Stevenage is a town wide, inter-church project, which is designed to enable people who attend local churches to serve members of their communities in really meaningful and practical ways.
Running for four years so far, LOVE Stevenage works to facilitate different churches from around town to serve their local area.
in 2019, as a part of Love Stevenage, Bunyan Baptist Church working closely with other churches in Stevenage and several funders to provide a fun day that will be especially accessible for people with disabilities.
Taking place at St Nicholas Park at the top of Pilgrims Way, SG1 4PT between 1-4pm on Saturday 13th July 2019, the event provided bouncy castles, face painting, drama, refreshments, sports, games and more; all designed to be especially accessible and inclusive for people with disabilities, and their friends, families and carers… and to make it even better, everything was totally free!
The day was a huge success, with several hundred attendees joining in for hours, as children and adults alike made new friends, tried new activities, and had a whole lot of fun!
Bunyan Baptist Church would like the thank all the funders, partners and volunteers who made it possible to offer the day's activities for free, and for facilitating the hire of the field, pavilion and the fully accessible loo for the day. Over £5,000 of funding was contributed from Baptist Union Insurance, The Stevenage Borough Council Local Community Budget, The Hertfordshire Disability Sports Partnership and the eight partner churches: Thank you!
