Disability Awareness Sunday – 18th June 2017


In New Zealand, Disability Awareness Sunday (DAS) is observed on the third Sunday in June.

It is an opportunity to be intentional about disability awareness and is a great way to educate your church. It is not just about raising awareness, but celebrating and encouraging people with disabilities in their gifts and ministries.

Below are some resources we are pleased to have freely available for you to use.
