Outside the Building

Outside the Building

Richhill man Michael moved to Dublin in the early 2000s to work with Christian Aid. During this time he travelled around the globe to places such as Kenya and India, where he was struck by the effects of divisive structures on society.

While in Dublin he began to work with the small church-planting initiative Ignite Network and Urban Junction — a youth and community project.

The diverse backgrounds their work has attracted has caused them to re-examine what’s important and find real joy in the ​“grey” areas.

Impairment and Humanity

Impairment and Humanity

Church and Mission Co-ordinator at Evangelical Alliance, Donna Jennings’s life changed with the arrival of her son, Micah. Diagnosed with ASD, he forced her to challenge how we approach ​“normal”.

As we endeavour to do better in light of culture’s lens what needs to change, in terms of community, relationships, to adjust what we see as normal?

Throughout the years, attitude towards disability has been cruel or ignorant. Maybe there’s good intentions, but what if we just need better conversations and openness?

Donna’s story has impacted many people. She works with Tio Associates: an organisation that shines a light on intellectual disability.
