Parking

St. Andrew does not have dedicated parking and relies primarily on street parking. This system has worked well for us, but it can be a bit daunting for first time visitors. If you are traveling from out of town, please feel free to contact us in advance and we will arrange for someone to assist you in finding a place to park when you arrive.

For worship services, St. Andrew has a limited number of “sidewalk” parking spaces on the 37th Street side of the church building. These often fill a few minutes before the start of service. Please be advised that It is illegal to park on the sidewalk at all other times.

Street parking is available on a first-come, first-served basis. In general, you will park very near the facility, but occasionally you may need to walk a block or two. On certain days, especially during winter, it can be more difficult to find a spot near the church. Therefore, we recommend that you arrive a few minutes early to ensure you find a spot in time for the start of service.
On school days, parking is not permitted in front of the facility on Honore during school hours.

Accessibility

The church and school buildings are seasoned facilities that lack handicap-accessibility ramps and similar features. However, our ushers  will be happy to assist anyone into and out of the building for church services. Please feel free to contact us in advance or simply ask for assistance when you arrive at the facility.
