Accessible toilets are available both on the ground floor and upstairs. There is also a lift available. You can read more about physical access to the church on our website here: https://www.st-mary-magdalene.org.uk/accessibility-2/
We are a friendly church who will do all we can to make sure you are welcomed and comfortable here. Some of our regular congregation have different needs, including learning disabilities and autism, and it is normal for us to make changes to make sure they are comfortable and happy in church.

If there’s something you need that we don’t offer or have here, drop us a line and we’ll make it happen – no fuss – we’ll just quietly make sure you are happy and comfortable so that you can concentrate on building a relationship with Christ in the sacrament and through prayer.
We have car parking to the rear of the church which has level access across a paved surface. There is also often on-street parking closer to the front door of the church in a lay-by, but we cannot guarantee the availability of this as it is on a public road.
Large print is always available on request
