Congregational Church Of North Barnstead, UCC
Celebrates Accessibility Designation And Award Each year, one Sunday on
the United Church of Christ (UCC) church calendar is designated as
Access Sunday. This year October 9th will be the occasion that all of
the UCC will join together in celebrating the gifts of persons with
disabilities and the strides that the church has made in being more
whole through being more accessible. It is also a day that the church
acknowledges the journey yet to be taken with our sisters and brothers
For the Congregational Church of North
Barnstead, UCC (CCNB), this Access Sunday is especially significant
since CCNB will be celebrating its designation last fall as an “A2A”
congregation. A2A, or Accessible to All, refers to congregations that
have completed the Accessible to All process and made the commitment to
be physically and attitudinally welcoming of people with disabilities.
CCNB has been working for several years making the 1820 building more
accessible with ramps, pew spaces for wheelchairs, an accessible
restroom. In addition CCNB provides hearing assistive devices, makes
large print bulletins and hymnals available, offers companions for the
blind, and raises awareness about issues such as dementia and mental
illness. CCNB is proud to be the first church in NH and only the third
in the country to receive this A2A recognition. In addition, CCNB was
honored this year to be named one of 3 recipients of the 2016 Governor’s
Accessibility Awards given each year by the Governor’s Commission on
To celebrate these achievements, the
Conference Minister of the NH Conference, United Church of Christ, the
Rev. Gary Shulte, will preach on Access Sunday “Accessibility-Right
Here, Right Now”
All are welcome to celebrate with us on Access
Sunday or any Sunday for 10 AM Worship Service and Sunday School for
children of all ages. CCNB is located at 504 North Barnstead Rd. and is
an Open and Affirming and Accessible to All congregation which means
EVERYONE receives an extravagant welcome!
