Now, more than ever before, church bathrooms are featured heavily in the renovations that communities are making to their places of worship across the nation. As more communities strive to increase the level of activity in their church, they realize that they must provide facilities to make such a prospect feasible. Kitchens and bathrooms are necessary for any community activities that are to be carried out on a regular basis.

Ideally, church bathrooms will provide facilities for both men and women, and also for the handicapped. Church bathrooms in the USA, like airline bathrooms and private clubs, are not subject to the ADA regulations. This means that it is up to the owners of such buildings to provide, or not provide, accessibility for the handicapped.

Community Service and Church Bathrooms

However, most church administration committees realize that to really provide a service to their community they must cater to all the members of that community, especially those with special needs such as the disabled. The spirit of the ADA is actually in keeping with the concept of a church serving the whole community. Since it's not difficult to provide church bathrooms with facilities for the disabled, it would be a great shortcoming not to do so.

While church bathrooms would not be expected to be overly lavish, they need to meet certain standards. Ideally, those standards will be matched to the community they serve. Again, making sure that the facilities are adequate regarding church bathrooms is not really the problem. Upkeep is likely to be a far greater problem, once good quality bathroom installations are chosen and installed.
