- Offering a welcome for all: church accessibility guidance updated | Church of England – The issue of accessibility in church buildings was highlighted for us on Easter Sunday morning. Three wheelchair users and their friends attempted to squeeze into the single pew space created in our church building. The building may be accessible but is it useable for people with mobility problems?. Access to a building that is stacked full of fixed pews and narrow aisles isn't much use to people like my 35 year old son who require flexible spaces to enjoy many activities. Apparently there would be a full scale battle with conservation groups if an application was made to change the Victorian interior to the the building.
Perhaps this new guide from the Church of England will help them to take up the cause on behalf of those who are unable to do it for themselves.
