Where are you located?
We are the big white church in the center of Chelmsford. Our address is 2 Westford St. View Map
What times are your services?
During the regular church year (The first Sunday after Labor Day in September through to late June) we hold a Sunday morning service at 10:00 am in the main sanctuary under the steeple. Summer services (July and August) are at 9:00 am. Summer services are held in the Chapel adjacent to the parking lot.
What time should I arrive?
For the 10:00 service, we suggest you aim to arrive at the parking lot by 9:45. If this is the first visit for your children, we suggest you arrive at 9:35 so that you can meet the Religious Education staff. They will ensure your children are placed in the right class. Your children are also welcome with you during the service. Back to top
Where should I park?
We have a very small parking lot next to the church on Westford Street. We try to keep the limited spaces in this lot avaliable for newcomers, visitors, families with young children and those who need to use our handicapped parking spaces. So, if you are new to us, please feel free to use this lot.
In addition to the church parking lot, parking is available at the following places:
At the intersection of North Road (Route 4) and Academy Street, turn downhill into the small one-way street to Number 9, North Road, beside the small public garden.
Behind Number 10 North Road - Lampert, Hauser, Rodman
In the public lot behind the Fiske House/Santander Bank (entrance on Rt 129 just past the intersection)
There is some additional on-street parking on Westford Street and in the center of town.
