Local Church Accessibility Survey
As we seek to open the church to all people and to offer radical hospitality as the Body of Christ, we need to be mindful of the accessibility needs of those who are disabled. This survey helps the local church identify areas of church facilities and church life that need improvement in accessibility. You can choose to do a full church audit, or to examine one or more areas of accessibility by going to the section of the audit most pertinent to your church situation. At the end of this audit please indicate one or two priorities your church will work on in the coming year. By completing this survey, the Committee on Disability Concerns for the NCCUMC can plan training and seek out resources to assist your church in the work to be done.
