We recognise that not everybody is able to attend church in person. During Covid-19, in recognition of the additional risks involved for vulnerable individuals, we launched a live-stream of our services. The live-streams are available via our YouTube channel and the links are also posted weekly on our Facebook page. We will continue to allow the flexibility of virtual or in-person attendance now, and going forward, in recognition of the changing world in which we now live.
A Disability-friendly Church
We have a large parking space with a marked out ‘disembarkment’ area for those who have mobility issues. There is a ramp up into the church hall from the car park, allowing access for wheelchairs and those who cannot manage steps. We also have a number of accessible toilets both in the halls and in the church foyer.
Within the church space there are two rows of static chairs allowing access for wheelchair users to enjoy the service.
There is a hearing loop system in the church for the hard-of-hearing. Our brand new, state-of-the-art A/V system provides excellent amplification of the service to those with hearing difficulties. We also have an overhead screen for those that prefer not to use the hymn books.
We are ‘dementia friendly’ and warmly invite individuals living with dementia, and their carers, to our services. We are pleased to provide a welcoming and inclusive space.
Our monthly memory café, Tea & Memories, offers support, friendship and activities for those living with dementia, and their carers. These take place usually on the first Friday of each month. Click here for the latest information.
