Getting to the church


There is a limited amount of off-street car parking within the grounds of Goodmayes Baptist Church.  On street car parking might also be available, but this may quickly fill up.  There is a council car park south of the railway line at Goodmayes Railway Station, with the entrance off Goodmayes Road.  This is free of charge at weekends.  It is 3 minutes’ walk from the church.

Alternatively, why not consider getting to the church by means other than the car?  This will help reduce your carbon footprint.  It will also save having to find somewhere to park! 



As well as Goodmayes railway station being nearby, the church is well served by a number of bus routes.  For more detailed information on getting to the church by bus or train click-here


PLEASE BE AWARE that on the following weekends there are no trains calling at Goodmayes Station: -


Saturday & Sunday 23 & 24 March 2019 - no trains Liverpool Street to Shenfield


Saturday & Sunday 30 & 31 March 2019 - no trains Liverpool Street to Shenfield

This is in connection with engineering work.

Those arriving by train are advised to travel on Central Line to Gants Hill, and then get the 128 (going to Romford Station) or 150 bus (going to Becontree Heath).  Listen out for the announcement ‘Goodmayes Lane’, alight and walk northwards along Goodmayes Road to Goodmayes Baptist Church.

Alternatively, travel by train to Barking Station.  Then catch the EL3 bus, going northwards to Little Heath.  Listen out for the announcement ‘Goodmayes Station’.  Alight at that stop.  It is just a short distance to Goodmayes Baptist Church.  Cross Goodmayes Road at the zebra crossing to get to the church.


BY BICYCLE - Where to leave your bike:

It is suggested for now locking your bike to the noticeboard on the north side of the church - see pictures below.   The noticeboard is an immovable object which should provide reasonably secure locking for bikes.  It is hoped to provide more bicycle stands with secure locking in the future.

We would prefer non-folding bicycles not to be left inside the church during a Sunday morning.  This is to ensure that a bicycle does not fall over on top of a child (prevention of accidents).

A folding bike may be left, folded, in a corner of the large Cordell Hall.  We would ask that plastic chairs are put around the folded bike.  This will deter children from climbing on the bike.
