Special Considerations for Special Needs

The Arlington Street public transit station re-opened in June 2009 and now provides handicapped access from the transit station to street level via elevators and/or a ramp. A separate part of the MBTA project created a wheelchair ramp leading from street level on Boylston Street to the church office door.

Handicapped access to the Sanctuary on Arlington Street is provided by a ramp on Arlington Street which leads to an entrance to the Sanctuary.

During worship services, and other special events, FM amplification headsets can be provided upon request. Braille hymnals are also available for Sunday services, as well as a large print version of the hymnal and each week’s order of service. Please ask an usher for assistance.

Arlington Street Church has a wheelchair accessible restroom immediately adjacent to the Sanctuary.
