How To Find Us :
On Foot
From Guildford Town Centre we are close to the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre. Take the footpath over the river Wey, past the Borough Council entrance and then continue up Porridge Pot Alley. At the top bear left and immediately cross the road into Millmead Terrace. From this corner you can see the Church.

By Car
From the A3 southbound take the exit towards Cathedral/Onslow Village/University.  At the exit roundabout follow signs for the Town Centre (third exit, after Cathedral).  Continue about a mile.  Shortly after passing the back entrance to the railway station turn left at T Junction/mini roundabout. Cross the railway bridge and enter the one way system (keep to the right hand lane at this point).  Follow round to the right (you cross the river twice) and take the Godalming/University of Law/Crematorium exit (A322 Park Street which quickly becomes A3100 Portsmouth Road). The Church is 300 yards up on your left.  See below for information on parking.
Alternatively leave the A3 at the Town Centre exit and follow signs towards the Centre until you reach the one-way system, passing the Friary Shopping Centre, then follow Godalming A3100/University of Law/Crematorium exit as above).

From the A3 northbound take the exit towards Royal Surrey County Hospital/Cathedral/Research Park/University/Holiday Inn hotel.  At the exit roundabout follow round to the right (Cathedral/University) then pass under the A3.  At the next roundabout take the 4th exit (after the Cathedral) signed to Town Centre/Onslow Village.  Continue about a mile.  Shortly after passing the back entrance to the railway station turn left at T Junction/mini roundabout. Cross the railway bridge and enter the one way system (keep to the right hand lane at this point).  Follow round to the right (you cross the river twice) and take the Godalming/University of Law/Crematorium exit (A322 Park Street which quickly becomes A3100 Portsmouth Road).

From the A31 (from Farnham) and A331 (Bracknell/Reading) bear right at the Guildford end of the A31 where it divides at the A3 junction.  Follow straight down the A31 (approx 2 miles) to the town centre.  Cross the railway bridge and enter the one way system (keep to the right hand lane at this point).  Follow round to the right (you cross the river twice) and take the Godalming/University of Law/Crematorium exit (A322 Park Street which quickly becomes A3100 Portsmouth Road).

By Train
Leaving Guildford railway station (exit via Platform 2 towards town centre) turn right, keep to the right and cross Farnham Road at the pedestrian traffic lights crossing (avoid the underpass).  Turn left and follow round to the right along Park Street.  This soon passes the end of the High Street on your left, bends right and becomes Portsmouth Road as you pass The Mount on your right and The Cannon Pub on your left.  Cross Portsmouth Road at the pedestrian lights opposite the bottom of the Mount and continue up the hill.  The Church is 300 yards up on your left.
