Accessibility and toilet facilities

Unfortunately, at the present time, the church does not have a toilet. We use the ones in church house, adjacent to the church. (where there is also an accessible toilet) during services and events – at other times it is sometimes hired by other groups so cannot be accessed. Access to Church House is up one step. There is s freestanding ramp in the entrance porch which can be used for assistance when necessary.

The church building itself has to be accessed down one step. We do have freestanding ramps to assist wheelchair users, located just behind the entrance door.
