We are Pete and Christine Winmill, living in West Berkshire and part of the church family at St Nic’s in Newbury. Our two sons and daughters-in-law are all engaged in Christian work and we have five wonderful grandchildren.
Our passion is to reach the UK’s 1.5 million adults with learning disabilities with the love of Jesus. Many are marginalised by society and even within the church because of their disability. We aim to inspire and equip God’s church to be welcoming and accessible to all.
In May 2017, after 15 fruitful years with Prospects, we launched Count Everyone In and CEI is now uniquely placed as a registered UK charity focusing on this specific area of Christian ministry.
· We challenge and encourage congregations to consider how their church or group could be transformed
· We deliver training for whatever contact or ministry people may have with people with learning disabilities
· We offer advice and support to churches and ministry groups, old and new
· We lead teams of volunteers at Christian festivals around the UK, running simple but not childish programmes based on the theme of each event
· We run holiday weekends and even a popular holiday week at Le Pas Opton, Spring Harvest’s holiday park in France
We have a growing range of resources available in print and on our YouTube channel
We are thrilled to be joined by Janneke Klos, by profession a social worker and also a Makaton tutor. Janneke brings a range of experience and will be offering the only Christian Makaton (signing) course to be validated by The Makaton Charity.
With a breadth of experience across denominations, church groups, ages and abilities, Count Everyone In wants to see all Christians mobilised to use the gifts God has given so that we all live life to the full, as God intended, and give that same invitation to life to those who might otherwise miss out.
