Congregational Church of North Barnstead, UCC (CCNB) is on a journey to
create an “A2A” (Accessible to All) church. This journey began with
building an outside ramp for wheelchairs or others with walking
difficulties and adding a side doorway/exit. In addition, there is now a
raised paved entrance that leads to both the Pratt schoolhouse used by
the children and for small group meetings as well as to the ramp to the
Church. This area also serves as a handicapped parking area for two
changes the church is celebrating include:
accessible bathroom with hand rails
the chancel area from three levels to one to provide total access to the
Accessible spaces for wheelchairs within the sanctuary to allow anyone
and everyone to have a sense of being part of the church community
print bulletins and a large print hymnal available at the front door
• Easy to
use hearing enhancements using personal FM devices to allow people with
hearing loss and/or hearing aids to hear more clearly the joyful and
heartfelt words and music each week.
and ongoing work will ensure that no matter who you are, you will find a
place at CCNB.

participate fully in the life of the church. Won’t you join us on our
journey? Sunday service, including Sunday School for children and youth,
is at 10 am each week.
