Facilities and features
We have toilets available off the church foyer.
One toilet cubicle also holds the baby changing mat and both have toddler steps.
On Sunday mornings we usually have access to parking in Aldridge School, entrance between Nos. 6 & 8 Tynings Lane. This avoids congestion on Tynings Lane itself.
Our toilets are directly off the foyer at the same level as the rest of the building. Both have handrails which can be lowered for use.
We have a few spaces outside the house next door, which we also own.
There is a public defibrillator in the entrance driveway to Aldridge School between Nos. 6 & 8 Tynings Lane. This is outside the gates, so still available 24/7.
The entrance is a brick path without steps from the pavement to the foyer door.
Assistance dogs are welcome, but please be aware that some people are uneasy around any dog, even the well-behaved ones.
The whole parish is working towards becoming Dementia friendly as part of Lichfield's Diocese-wide initiative.
We have gluten-free wafers available at our monthly services of Holy Communion.
One of our musicians signs in Maketon for songs in our Sunday services. We currently have no BSL qualified signers.
Music and Worship
The worship band leads songs and hymns in our Sunday services. We practice on Wednesday evenings at 7:30, when other congregation members may join us for rehearsal and worship.

Help for Visitors
In place of service or hymn books, we project the Sunday service liturgy, Bible passages and song/hymn lyrics for the congregation to see. This also allows us to show slides & video clips for other parts of the service. The worship band and the service leaders use a PA system.
The church hall is available for children's parties and similar events. Use the mailbox on this site or contact [email protected] for details.
We serve Fairtrade Tea and Coffee at all events where refreshments are provided.
