about the project
The founders of The David's Table Trust recognised the barriers Christian adults with special needs face in fellowshipping with other Christians, accessing opportunities to grow in their faith, serve and take part in purposeful activities.
Support work is limited, particularly at the weekends and often people are left feeling isolated and alone. We believe 'church' should be accessible to everyone.
The Dovetail Project aims to join together the body of Christ, through weekday, day-time sessions.
We hope that, through visits from fellow christians, local church leaders and the wider community, as well as nurturing friendships between each Dovetailer, we will enable people to grow in confidence of God's precious plan for each of us.
The project's initial sessions start in October, in Trowbridge.

We would love to hear from you!

Our churches and community are full of people with fascinating interests, gifts, and talents.
We have a vision to see members of the Churches in Trowbridge and the wider community coming along to our sessions and sharing those gifts and talents with our Dovetailers.
We currently need 12 people to volunteer for about 20 minutes once every 3 months, in a rotation, or even just as a one-off would be great.
~ Do you have a gift in crafts, art or modelling?
~ Do you have a song or a piece of music you would love to teach or just share with our Dovetailers?
~ Do you have an interest? It could be anything from trains to aeroplanes, science to history, stamps to thimbles, gardening to nutrition, photography to drawing!
Are you a church leader or committed Christian? Could you spare 20 minutes one week to come and share something God has laid on your heart?
