We are Pete and Christine Winmill. Married for 40+ years, we live in West Berkshire and worship at St Nic’s in Newbury. We have two sons and daughters-in-law, all engaged in Christian work, and five grandchildren.
We are passionate about reaching the UK’s 1.5 million adults with learning disabilities with the love of Jesus. This we do through inspiring and equipping God’s church to be welcoming and accessible to all. Many people are marginalised by society and within the church because of their learning disability.
Having worked with Prospects (now part of the Livability Group) for 15 years, in May 2017 we went freelance under the banner of Count Everyone In in order to focus on this specific area of Christian work. We challenge and encourage congregations to think about how their church or group could be transformed. Together we deliver training for whatever ministry or contact people may have with adults with learning disabilities. Over the years we have offered advice and support to church ministry groups, old and new, and this continues to be available. For many years we have led teams of volunteers at Christian festivals around the UK, offering simple (but not childish) programmes based on the theme of the event. We run holiday weekends and an annual holiday week at Le Pas Opton (LPO), Spring Harvest’s holiday park in France.
With a wealth of experience across denominations, church groups, all ages and abilities; we are keen to mobilise all Christians in expressing their faith and utilising the gifts that God has given each one. Do get in touch.
