Facilities and features

Accessibility

We have two toilets which are on the ground floor. The larger room has a baby changing table in it as well as a hand rail by the toilet.

they are both twinned with toilets abroad.

These are situated in the larger of out two toilets.

There is a public car park, The Maltings, across Church Street and accessed via a path between the Bank House and McCracken's opticians. Parking is currently free on a Sunday. There are four 20 minute spaces available by the gate in the Market Place. Blue Badge holders can use these and there are no roads to cross to reach the church.

This was installed a number of years ago. It has a hand rail, but is not fully compliant with current regulations. It is fully accessible with both a wheelchair and a rollator.

The entrance from the Market Place does not have any steps to it and is accessible by prams, wheelchairs, mobility boot scooters and rollators. There is a slight ridge which is easy to use with a rollator (I have no problems with it!).

An induction loop is installed.

There are three large print copies of the Holy communion and morning Prayer Service. There are also large print versions of the hymn books.

With prior request, the CofE CafE is able to provide gluten free refreshments.
