Toilets and the Arc Cafe are situated on the north side of the church building below ground level and are unfortunately only accessible via stairs.


Level access and accessible toilets


Level access to the church is via the south entrance, which is accessible via the south churchyard and there is a temporary accessible toilet to the left of the porch outside the main building. Take a look at our interactive map for a full layout of the church.


We recognise that these facilities are not ideal and apologise for any inconvenience.


The issue of access is high on the church's agenda and will be addressed as part of our development project; details of which can be found here
