Breathe creates space for parents and carers of children and adults with additional needs to connect with God and others like them. Five families, including seminar stream leaders, Andy and Michelle Worthington, share stories of acceptance with us. So, grab a coffee and join the Breathe community as we explore and reflect on what real acceptance might look like for us as individuals, for those we care for, and for our futures. Join the Breathe at New Wine Facebook Group for an invite to the Zoom Gatherings after the Evening Celebration.
