Parking information

We would like to reserve the two Charlotte Street parking lots for guests, the elderly, and those with small children (in carriers or strollers).

We are requesting that able-bodied members and regular attendees please consider parking on the street or in one of the other lots available on Sundays, see map below:

  • The lot behind Kobler Hall on Charlotte Street, which used to be the old rental property lot.
  • The lot on the church side of Charlotte Street, which is closest to Princess Anne St.
  • The municipal lot on Princess Anne St. between City Hall and the Courthouse.
  • The kitchen lot off of Princess Anne St.

There will be signs at each of those lots.

Thank you for making our church a welcome place for others to experience the birth of Christ this Christmas.
