Things to Know

COVID Precautions

We strongly encourage you to only attend in person if you have been vaccinated against COVID-19.  We request that you abide by our COVID screening guidelines.  At this point, masking will be optional, though we may change that depending on local guidelines or CDC recommendations at the time of services.


Sanctuary Services

Services held in the Sanctuary are accessible by those with mobility supports (canes, crutches, rollators, wheelchairs) by flat brick paths and carpeted floors. The bathrooms available for these services are behind two doors that do not open electronically. There are accessible stalls with stability supports. 

If you are in need of seating such as an accessible aisle seat, a chair with arms, or space for a wheelchair, please reach out to Karen Edwards (508-358-9992, ) by Tuesday, September 20th, to let her know which service(s) you plan to attend and what type of assistance we can provide. We ask that you arrive early so that we can ensure appropriate accommodations.

Camp Chickami Services

Services held at Camp Chickami are difficult to access for those with mobility support needs. The main path includes a flight of stairs and uneven ground. It is possible to access the field through a uneven side path, however it is not easy. Additionally, seating is not provided, so please remember to bring chairs or blankets! If it is your preference to attend the Chickami services and you would like to make an access plan, please contact Karen Edwards (508-358-9992, ) and we will be sure to have ushers there to offer support.

Additional Information

Assistive Listening Devices are available from our Ushers / Greeters.

Accessible Parking: If you anticipate needing accessible parking, please contact Karen Edwards (508-358-9992, ) by Tuesday, September 20th, to let her know which service(s) you plan to attend and what type of assistance we can provide.

If you have other accessibility needs, we would love to work with you to provide what accommodations we can. Please contact Karen Edwards (508-358-9992, ) to discuss your needs.
