This website is powered by Church Edit — a Content Management Tool designed especially for churches. The website does not currently validate against the W3C standards for XHTML and CSS, as a number of sections are outside our control. The sections that we can control have been built to conform to these standards and we strive to achieve AAA accessibility rating against the web content accessibility 1.0/2.0 (WCAG), which means that our site will be viewable by the widest ranges of devices both now and in the future. However, the site should be equally usable in browsers which do not support CSS at all, which includes the browser you are currently using. It has been tested in the browsers, Firefox 22, Internet Explorer 7 & 10, Opera 12, Chrome 27, and NetSurf 3.0.
 

Screen readers & PDAs

Navigation and content is available even if you do not have Javascript enabled. We have built into our site a ‘Skip to content’ link for screen readers to offer users an option to skip directly to the content of the page if they so choose.
 

Access Keys …

Access Keys provide a quick way to navigate round the site without using a mouse. We have based our keys on the UK Government Access Keys system. The keys are used in conjunction with Alt or Ctrl keys which vary depending on your browser.

  1. Hold down
    • Alt key if using Internet Explorer or Google Chrome for Windows
    • Alt & Shift key if using Mozilla/Firefox
    • Shift & Esc together if using Opera
    • Ctrl if using Firefox or Safari on a Mac
       
  2. And simultaneously select a key from the list below:
    • 0 — Accessibility details
    • 5 — Jump to the Main Menu
    • 8 — Terms & Conditions
    • 9 — Go to the Contact Us page
    • S — Skip to content
       
  3. Press Enter if using Internet Explorer for Windows PC (other browsers go to the page immediately).

If using the keyboard then the “Home” menu option can be navigated to by using Access Key ‘5’ and pressing the TAB key. The rest of the menu can then be accessed by using the Arrow keys.
 

External websites …

We have included links to other websites. All external links are marked as such with the prefix “External link:” in the title of the anchor and with non-CSS browsers the text “(external link)” will be displayed after the link unless it is obvious from the link that it takes you to another website.

We have no control over the nature, content and availability of these sites, and the inclusion of any link does not necessarily imply a recommendation or endorse the views expressed within them.
