Accessibilty

NBUC

 

How physically accessible is the building?

There is a ramped entrance off the parking lot with a fully accessible building, including an elevator to the lower level, ramps and railings in the sanctuary.

Assistive Devices

  • We provide assistive devices for participating in our worship. Devices are available at the Information located near the main doors to the worship place.

  • We will train our staff and volunteers assure that people are permitted to use their own personal assistive devices to access the sanctuary for worship and other applicable programs, goods and services.

  • We will familiarize ushers and other staff/volunteers with the various assistive devices that may be used by participants with disabilities while accessing our programs, goods and services.

  • We will train our ushers to provide space for wheelchair access to seats and storage of the device conveniently next to the person in the following circumstances:

    • At major events such as concerts, when seating is full, we will remove two chairs at each access point from the ramps to each tier of seats, for people with wheel chairs to move to the seats and to store their transportation device next to them.

    • At regular worship when more space is available, we will remove two seats by two of the main double doors for people with wheel chairs to move to the seats and to store their transportation device next to them, or we will train the ushers to approach those with transportation devices to offer to remove two chairs at the access point to each tier for their seating and storage of their devices.

    • Because of the size of scooters, the ushers will be trained to invite people with scooters to move to a wheelchair for sitting in the sanctuary, and to assist them with the wheelchair movement if they desire.

  • We will familiarize ushers and other staff/volunteers with the various assistive devices that may be used by participants with disabilities while accessing our programs, goods and services.

  • Upon a participant's request, we will make every effort to provide the requested assistive device and/or service and to cover relevant financial expenses, upon approval from the Board/Council.
