Accessibility and Safeguarding

Accessibility

We aim to be a Church that is open and welcoming to all, regardless of health or mobility and so we are trying to make our Church building as accessible as possible.

The church has full access downstairs for wheelchairs, buggies and those who use walking aids, this includes a ramp up onto the dais. There is a gentle sloping path to the main entrance. It is possible to drive right up to the entrance if you would like to be dropped off at the door and there are people available to help you to your seat if required.

For the visually impaired there are large print Bibles and large print hymn/song sheets which can be easily obtained upon request.  We have a T-loop in our sound system for those with hearing aids.

We have one toilet in Church which we have made as accessible as possible within the confines of an 18th century building and it is regularly used by members of our congregation who use wheelchairs.  We have redeveloped and extended our parish hall and as part of this project we have added a disabled toilet.

If there are any other ways in which we could make our Church buildings more accessible please do let us know.
