Special Needs Access

Access Ministries at Northland strives to create a welcoming environment for individuals with disabilities and their families.

Our facilities in Longwood offer ...

  • A large parking area designated in front of the worship center for those who have special needs. 
  • A signed worship service for individuals who are hearing impaired, Sunday mornings at 9 a.m.
  • Sound amplification aids are free and available at the Welcome Center for use during any worship service.
  • Printed lyrics for the visually impaired are also available.
  • Designated seating areas throughout the sanctuary, if needed, for people with wheelchairs, walkers or other special needs.
  • A special needs/cry room located at the back left side of the sanctuary. This room is equipped with comfortable seating and a large-screen monitor to watch and hear the service. The room is useful not only for moms and babies or small children, but also for children who may find the service to be too much stimulation, who are prone to seizures, who have autism, and other special needs children. To support this, there are two family restrooms nearby.

Individuals and families with disabilities will find community and support at  ...

  • Buddy Break, a FREE respite program designed to give caregivers of kids with special needs a break from their ongoing care-giving responsibilities.
  • Young Life Capernaum, youth ministry directed at teens with special needs.
  • Sunday School, teaching children to know who God is—and that He created them with a plan and a purpose to serve Him. A variety of Christian education options for children with special needs is available!
  • Fellowship opportunities and support groups.
  • FaithAbility, a Bible study and connection group for adults with intellectual disabilities and their family and friends.
