About

Every child is special to God, whatever his or her abilities or needs.

In Bethany, our Special Needs Ministry is for children with cognitive, communicative and physical disabilities, such as autism, developmental delay and celebral palsy. By running a specially-tailored Sunday School Programme that caters to the needs of our children, we seek to enter into the unique world of each child to teach them about God’s love and how to love God in response.

He will feed His flock like a shepherd; He will gather the lambs with His arm, and carry them in His bosom, and gently lead those who are with young.

Isaiah 40:11

Following the example of our Lord Jesus Christ, we seek to:-

  1. be shepherds to our children, teach them God’s word, and love and care for them tenderly. Our hope is for our children to grow in their understanding of God through their unique learning methods and to love God in response.
  2. reach out and minister to parents with love and gentleness. Our hope is for parents to know that they are not alone in their journey and to be able to focus on their spiritual needs when they leave their children with us.

Our dedicated Sunday School Programme caters to the unique needs of each child. Each child is paired with a teacher who facilitates his or her engagement in the programme. Through the use of visual cues, biblically-themed toys as well as other sensory elements, our hope and prayer is for each child to experience and learn about the love and joy of the Lord. For children with milder and physical needs, we seek to support and integrate them into our mainstream Sunday School Programme.

The Special Needs Ministry is supported by a team of dedicated church members who love children. Some of us have relevant expertise in the areas of medicine, physiotherapy, occupational therapy or are parents of children with special needs. Our Sunday School Programme is conducted in a dedicated room with relevant facilities and resources, such as gym mats and biblically-themed books and toys.
