Westminster Presbyterian Church
Information about Assistive Listening Devices
Westminster is currently and newly equipped with assistive listening devices. These are light weight, state-of-the-art devices designed to enhance the ability to hear during the worship service. If you care to try one or want additional information, please ask an usher, a deacon, an elder, Sharon Potin, or Raoul Jerome.
The receiver unit is small - about the size of a pack of cards. It can be clipped to a belt or dropped into a pocket or purse. A set of light weight headphones will be plugged into this unit. There is a single thumb wheel type switch that controls on-off and volume. There is no complex tuning or adjustment involved. Simply plug in, turn on, and enjoy. Caution should taken not to turn the volume up too high. This is a very powerful unit and excessive volume could be harmful. We suggest you start at level one and increase slowly until you reach a comfortable level.
The receiver unit looks like this:
