Visitors and those who need to park close will find spaces set aside for them in the main parking lot of the Meeting House during our services. The church also has two large racks for bicycles of all types. Visitors and members using the lot during the week must obtain a temporary parking permit, available in the Lobby. On weekends many of our members park in the parking areas in Doctors Park just to the south.

On Sunday mornings, parking is also available in the lot at 800 University Bay Drive, but be aware this facility locks at 1 p.m. If parking is unavailable in our lot, we invite you to explore these areas and enjoy a refreshing stroll. Click here for a parking map.
