Napier Hall Accessibility
Napier Hall consists of a ground floor only and has two meeting rooms. The main hall, which is used for Sunday Services and some mid-week events, is approximately 18 x 7 metres with a maximum capacity of 90 persons. The smaller rear hall is used for the children’s meeting on a Sunday morning and has a capacity of 30 persons. There is also a kitchen. Napier Hall has undergone improvement works in order to bring it into line with the requirements of the Disability Discrimination Act.
Cars can be parked directly in front of Napier Hall, although there are no designated accessible parking spaces. There is level access to the car park from the street.
Napier Hall has wheelchair access via permanent ramps to both the front and side doors. All doors open manually. The floor within the building is level throughout. There is an accessible toilet located toward the rear of the building, which includes a baby changing station. The toilet is unisex and is not for the sole use of disabled people. A key is not required. The door opens outward. There is a functional emergency alarm in the toilet, and disposal facilities are available in the toilet.
During Sunday services, seating takes the form of individual, movable chairs. The music and speaking are amplified via a public address system. There is currently no hearing loop. Songs, PowerPoints and Bible readings are projected in large writing on a screen at the front of the hall. Sermons are recorded onto CD and are available to those unable to attend Sunday services.
