All are welcome whether you are neurodiverse yourself or not. Join the conversation to learn more about the different gifts and challenges neurodiversity brings to spiritual life.
These workshops are hosted by Inclusive Gathering Birmingham in collaboration with Aspergers’ Heroes CIC. Inclusive Gathering is a church committed to pursuing radical inclusion and Asperger’s Heroes CIC coaches neurodiverse individuals and runs workshops for autistic adults.

About Inclusive Gathering Birmingham …
Inclusive Gathering Birmingham is a diverse church gathered together by a common dream: to become a truly inclusive faith community, where doubt and difference are a welcome part of our journey together toward Jesus. We believe that the way of Jesus leads us to the wild, radical idea that true spiritual community can be formed based on who is INCLUDED, not by who is EXCLUDED. We are a learning community, constantly growing and changing to live out this vision in new and expanding ways.
When we say “inclusion”, we mean much more than mere tolerance or welcome. We believe God wants us all to know that we actually belong. That means people of every race and ethnicity, sexual orientation and gender identity, age and background, HIV status, ability and disability, theological and political conviction are loved, invited, and fully included.
