Catholic

There are currently no Catholic ministries listed beyond Hampton Roads.

Episcopal
Our entrance and restrooms are wheelchair accessible and we have nice wide aisles, as well as chairs instead of pews, making it easy to seat those who use wheelchairs wherever they wish. We have had the pleasure of having members of our congregation who have Down's syndrome as well as people who have ASD and welcome all. Children with disabilities are welcome to be a part of our religious education program. Please contact us so that we can discuss any needed accommodations.

Non-Denominational
Our heart is that all God's precious children (young to old) would be able to come into His church and feel welcomed, loved and be ministered to and have a place to serve. Our children's ministry offers special needs ministry where children can be taught the Word of God at their level, through our special needs classroom or by having a special needs buddy to assist them.

Worship Buddies is a Sunday morning ministry that breaks down barriers for children with special needs, allowing them to participate in Children's Ministry alongside their peers. We do so by pairing each child with their own "buddy". Our buddies are trained to know and meet each child's needs to make worship accessible for children of all abilities. This ministry allows families freedom to attend adult worship and build community while confident that their child's needs are being met. We are also working on growing our Student Ministry Friends Ministry in which we educate peers on how to include and befriend his/her peers with disabilities.
