Parking on Sunday Mornings

ChristCentral Church is well served by many public car parks, if you’ve not got change speak to our Guest Team and they’ll make sure you’ve got enough.

Parking BlueOur Morning Service venue, the John Pounds Centre, does not have a dedicated car park, however there are hundreds of spaces available in nearby public car parks. Our Welcome Team, who are visible at our St James’ Street entrance, can provide you with £2 for all day parking and a map showing the recommended car parks, alternatively you can download our Handy Guide.  We don’t want you to be caught out with on-street ‘short-stay’ parking, so all our options give plenty of time to enjoy the service, and you can even pop out for lunch nearby without worry.
