We are situated in Woodley, a town on the east edge of Reading.
We are situated on Crockhamwell Road, Woodley, RG5 3LA,
among housing not far from the town centre shops
(continue along the road past the Waitrose car park and down the hill).
We are on the corner at the south end of Arundel Road.
The entrance to the church car park is in Arundel Road (west side).
There are additional parking spaces at the rear of the church (drive to the left of the buildings).
There two disabled spaces in front of the halls entrance and two more as you head to the rear park.
If the car park is full, on-street parking is free in nearby streets.
Also nearby is the public car park by Waitrose, continue westward along Crockhamwell Road and the entrance is on the right. This is free after 18:00 and on Sundays, and is less than five minutes walk back to the church. This is recommended for large evening events such as concerts.
Here is a link to an online map.
