We think it’s important that as many people as possible can access Christ Church and our services. We have improved our accessibility over the last few years and have plans to make further changes.
Access via steps: the main door (under the tower) is accessed by 4 steps. There is no handrail.
Step-free access is via the choir vestry, which is the red door on the far left-hand side as you face the main door. Unfortunately, we cannot always leave this door unlocked, so we suggest getting in touch in advance if possible.
Wheelchairs and mobility scooters: people using wheelchairs mobility scooters are most welcome at all times.
Parking: we have one marked blue badge parking space immediately outside the step-free door. We are happy to reserve further parking or drop-off spaces if needed – please get in touch.
Vision-impaired visitors: large print orders of service and other documents are available.
Induction loop: the church is equipped with a hearing loop system that covers the nave area. This is used at all services for spoken words.
The Eucharist is distributed from the chancel step, without the need to climb steps.
Assistance dogs: Guide dogs, hearing dogs and assistance dogs are welcome at Christ Church at all times.
Accessible toilet: we have a right-hand transfer accessible toilet cubicle accessed via the main porch. This is fully compliant with the latest building regulation requirements (‘Approved Document M’). The nearest Changing Places facilities are located in the Southgate Shopping Centre.
Access to the chancel and galleries: step-free access is not possible to these areas at the moment. We have plans to build a ramp to allow access to the chancel.
