Accessibility

There is a disabled toilet next to the church hall.

The disabled toilet has baby changing facilities.

The car park will hold up to 12 vehicles.

The disabled toilet is fitted with all the required facilities.

The church building has a ramp leading from the car park directly into the church hall.

There are three ramps into the church building. One ramp leads directly from the car park into the church hall. The main entrance to the church is level with the outside pavement. Because the church is built on a hillside, there is a stair lift down to the sanctuary level. Alternatively, you may enter via a ramped side entrance into the small meeting room, which leads directly into the sanctuary.

An induction loop is fitted in both the sanctuary and the church hall.

Large print bibles (NRSV) and hymnals (Methodis 'Singing the Faith') are available.

Assistance dogs are permitted in all parts of the building.
