This month on 3 December, the International Day of People with Disability (IDPWD) is observed. And this annual event is a wonderful opportunity for our church to celebrate the great diversity and creativity God has shown in making humankind.

We know God loves us all, and we know God made each one of us with a purpose and gift to share with the church and the world.

The Christian Care Sunday project has recently released new resources for worship that celebrate people living with disability and the carers who support people with disabilities.

 You can access the resources from the LCANZ’s Worship Planning Page ( or at 


The LCANZ encourages every congregation to set aside one Sunday each year to celebrate the care work in our congregations and communities – the month in which IDPWD is observed is a wonderful opportunity to reflect, plan and celebrate Christian Care Sunday.

We give thanks for the work of organisations such as Lutheran Services and Anuha in Queensland and Lutheran Care and Lutheran Disability Services in South Australia, who do vital work with people with disability, and their families, 365 days of the year.
