What access standards do our churches need?
I find it peculiar that the Anglican Diocese of Sydney would allow its monthly magazine to broadcast the notion of entertaining transgender persons to the point of installing "gender neutral bathroom options" when churches arguably do not meet some existing standards.
When I first shared my concern with a pewsitter from another Anglican Diocese of Sydney parish I suggested that I could find twelve Sydney Anglican churches that did not meet disability access standards on an afternoon's drive. My fellow responded with "I reckon you'd have trouble finding twelve that did!"
