Contact / Location
The main entrance to the Church is on Oak Road, on the upper side of the Church building. The Community Halls that are on the lower level of the Church can be accessed directly by an entrance on the lower side of the Church building (through the parking area). Internal stairs and a lift connect the upper and lower floors. Both entrances have free-of-steps access.
The Church has a very limited car parking area which can normally accommodate up to five cars, which is most often used by those who are less mobile. If you park here, please ensure to leave a suitable passageway for pushchairs and wheelchairs. Mainly, weekday car parking is on streets around the Church which are subject to certain daytime restrictions on the duration of stay. Vehicles are parked at the vehicle owner's risk. When you park to come to the Church please ensure you have read and understood the parking restrictions for where your car is parked. Please be sensitive to our neighbours when parking your car so as not to obstruct driveways or entrances. Always ensure emergency vehicles can access all streets easily.
