The church has a small car park approached from Essex Street. This quickly becomes full however, on a Sunday morning. If you park here blocking other cars in, please remember to move your car as soon as the service finishes to enable other people to leave.
The majority of parking places in the streets surrounding Holy Trinity (Essex Street, Trinity Street and Cambridge Street) are for residents only. There are a limited number of spaces available however, at the bottom and top of Essex Street; outside the Rose Tavern in Trinity Street and at the bottom of Trinity Street near Unthank Road. There are a few spaces in front of the church hall in Cambridge Street and more spaces at the bottom of Cambridge Street near Unthank Road. There are also spaces on Unthank Road near the shops and surrounding the park in Vauxhall Street. Paid parking is available at Chapelfield Gardens and at Bignold School at weekends.
Please park with consideration for our neighbours and take extra care whilst entering and leaving the church car park which has a narrow entrance.
