ACCESSIBILITY

Car parking for those with disabilities and mobility problems at East end of Church in churchyard. This can be muddy in wet weather.  Plans are afoot to improve this. There is alternative car parking for those with disabilities and mobility problems by Church Hall over the road.

The Main (North) door has two steps into Porch, and a deep step into Church. During services, the South Door, which has level access for wheelchairs, is unlocked. Push door hard!
Most of the church interior is accessible on a single level.

There is an accessible toilet with a baby changing facility inside the Church, off the Choir Vestry on the South Side (open during services). 

The Sound System includes a loop system.

The weekly newsheet, ‘Partners’, is available in large print. Large print hymn books and Bibles are available.

Children are welcome at all services. There is a child friendly area in the main church, and activities offered in the North Chapel during part of the main morning service on Sundays other than the first Sunday of the month, when we hold a Family “Allsorts” Service at 10.30am.

We aim to be open and accessible to all.  If you have any special needs with which we can help, given the limitations of a medieval building, do please let us know.
