How to find us
Our church is in a residential area tucked away just east of Streatham Hill (the A23) and south of Christchurch Road (the South Circular A205) but we are quite easy to find and accessible by road and public transport when you know we’re here.
Bus routes serving Streatham Hill: P13, 57, 109, 118, 133, 159, 201, 333, 417, 250, 319
The P13 which stops on Hillside Road, very close to the church, runs every 20 minutes between Streatham station via Tulse Hill station, Dulwich (Grove Tavern), East Dulwich (Goose Green and Sainsbury’s), Peckham (bus station), Old Kent Road (Tustin Estate) and New Cross Gate (Sainsbury’s).
For other buses, bus stops vary between the routes but in general most buses go through Streatham Hill, where you need to get off at the stop nearest to Barrhill Road / Dr. Doolittle’s pet shop, walk along Downton Avenue and turn left at the end onto Hillside Road. If you're travelling by bus from Brixton you need to get off at the Telford Avenue (Bus Garage) stop and simply walk up Wavertree Road until you reach the church at the top.
From the north, drive south along the A23, turn left onto the A205 (Christchurch Road / South Circular) and the second right you can actually take is Hillside Road.
