Honouring the indispensable

Used within the biblical imagery of the Church as the body of Christ, ‘Tiō’ means to honour, respect and lift up. It describes how God asks us to treat people who are often perceived as weaker and of lesser value. Tiō works to see people with intellectual disabilities valued, honoured and supported in the Church and in society.

1 Corinthians 12

  • Tio Christmas Cards for sale

    Iain Wilson from our Following God Together Group has designed and painted these 2 beautiful Christmas cards. The manger scene features a sky full of stars, as Iain explains God had promised Abraham his offspring would be as many as the stars in the sky. Inside is Isaiah 9v6 ‘For unto us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.’

    Iain describes the Dove painting as a symbol of God’s peace. It features inside Philippians 4 v7 ‘And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.’

    The cards are available to buy in packs of 10 for £7 with all proceeds going to our work with churches and families, supporting those with Intellectual disabilities. Each pack features one of the designs. If you would like to order some cards please get in touch at hello@tioassociates.org
