St James' ChurchAs a church, we seek to be inclusive by removing barriers that prevent others from joining with us in our worship and mission.  We believe that men and women are created by God in his image and have equal dignity and worth.  This includes all people, with or without disabilities.

We are committed to breaking down barriers and seeing the value of each person to help us become the family that God intends us to be.

We have sought to change our building and improve our practices to create equality of opportunity for people with disabilities as members of the church. 

For wheelchair users, mobility scooters and pushchairs there is a level access to the building from Church Walk and inside we have fully accessible toilet with changing facilities for babies.  There is a space on the ground floor for wheelchair users and users of mobility scooters to remain seated on them if they wish whilst taking part in our activities.

For the hard of hearing we have a modern amplification system and a loop system.  For those with a visual impairment we can provide large print copies of words and songs used. For the 11:00 am Sunday Worship the songs and responses are displayed on two video screens visible from most parts of the church building.

Young and old are welcome to join us is a wide range of services and other activities.  There is plenty of space for baby buggies and a creche is provided at the 11:00 am Sunday Service.

If there is further help that you would like us to provide, or adjustments that would make it easier for you to take part in our activities, please ask any of our ministers or one of our churchwardens, Jeremy Davidson and Clare Kent.

We look forward to welcoming you.

'The body is a unit, thought it is made up of many parts; and though all its parts are many, they from one body' (1 Corinthians 12:12)
