Emmanuel Support

We are a support group for parents who have children with disabilities.

Our aim is to give spiritual, emotional and practical support to parents and families of a child with any disability.

  • We support families at the time of discovery of the child’s disability and to deal with feelings of isolation and loneliness.
  • We help by holding friendly and supportive meetings where mothers and fathers can share freely without fear of judgment.
  • We help others to find wholeness in Jesus Christ and to know that He is there to meet their every need.
  • We have meetings for the whole family to join in as well as retreats for parents.
  • Our big annual events are the Parents’ Retreat and the Emmanuel Family Camp.
  • We send out a regular newsletter to keep you informed.

We hope you will join us for a time of support, fellowship and encouragement soon.
