Access into the building
The Church and Hall are accessible to wheelchair and mobility scooter users and people who have difficulty walking by means of ramped access to both main doors (Hall and Church). You can drive your mobility scooter right into the building as there is no fixed seating.
There is a fully-equipped accessible WC adjacent to the Barlow Moor Road entrance.
Corridors and Doors
Corridors and internal doors are generally wide enough to accomodate wheechair users and lighting in corridors and toilets is automatically controlled.
On-street parking close to the entrance and external ramps is possible but may be occupied early on. We have no off-street parking.
Large-print versions of some of the hymn books we use are available but have been unable to obtain large-print versions of all of them. However we are working to ensure that all our printed orders of service, hymn sheets and projected text meet Action for Blind People recommendations. If you find that the material we supply is unsuitable please talk to one of the Deacons about it and we will try to improve it before your next visit !
Guide Dogs and other Assistance Dogs would be very welcome at our services and other Church events. (We will try to keep any children present from distracting them !)
The Worship Area is fitted with an induction loop system for the benefit of hearing aid users (please use the 'T' setting on your hearing aid), and a sound re-inforcement system benefiting all users.
You are free to breast-feed at your seat if you are comfortable with this - we will never ask you to move. However, if you would prefer privacy please ask and we will make another comfortable room available to you.
Baby changing facilities are available for Mothers or Fathers in the Accessible WC
Facilities for Children
On Sundays we have Children's Church - this is led by CRB-checked Church members and provides age-appropriate activities in parallel with the latter part of the service.
For very small children we also provide a Creche with an audio link so that parents can listen to the service while their toddlers and babies play.
If you have requirements not mentioned above, please contact us and we will discuss with you what can be done to meet your needs. We aim to ensure that no-one is excluded from full participation in the Church's activities.
