Accessibility in Worship: Welcoming Everyone
Research from the National Organization of Disability suggests that people with disabilities are very likely to say their faith is important to them, but are more likely to not attend services due to accessibility issues. With the aging of the American population, the situation is becoming an increasingly significant factor in worship community vitality. This article explores the need for improved accessibility, includes a special section on designing for accessibility, and offers discussion questions to spark reflection among congregational leaders or study group participants about how to make the worship service accessible to everyone. It is available from the Calvin Institute of Christian Worship.
