Things to Know


Services in the Sanctuary

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 need to reserve an accessible aisle seat, a chair with arms, or space for a wheelchair, please reach out to Karen Edwards ((508)-358-9992 ext. 2, ) by Sunday, September 29 to share your request for each service you plan to attend. We ask that you arrive early so that we can ensure accommodations made are appropriate.

Services at Camp Chickami 

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 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 ext. 2 ) and we will be sure to have ushers there to offer support.
