Access conditions and requirements

Described records are accessible to researchers. Access restrictions may be imposed for reasons of privacy, conservation or other concerns.

Accessibility

Our church was built in 1916 at a time when members of the church lived in relatively close proximity and walked to Sunday worship services. Consequently, there is only limited surface parking on church property, located at the rear of the church off Bannerman Street.

We are located in a predominantly residential neighbourhood in the east end of downtown St. John’s. There are generally no parking restrictions on the surrounding streets during regular Sunday worship times. If you choose to park on the street, please pay attention to parking signage and please do not block residential driveways.

There are also several public-use parking lots in close proximity to the church, including the following:
P1 - Association of Registered Nurses of NL (used on Sundays by permission)
P2 - Colonial Building
P3 - Bannerman Street Park
P4 - Bishop Field School
