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 from Sunday 5th August 2018 up to and including Sunday 12th August 2018 trains will NOT be stopping at Goodmayes Station.  This is in connection with engineering works.

Those travelling to Goodmayes Baptist Church are advised to get the 364 bus (going to Dagenham East) from outside Ilford railway station.  Listen out for the automated announcement ‘Goodmayes Station’, alight, and walk the short distance southwards along Goodmayes Road to the church.

Alternatively, travel by train to Barking.  Catch the EL3 bus (going northwards to Little Heath) from outside Barking railway station.  Listen out for the automated bus stop announcement ‘Goodmayes Station’.  Alight, and cross the road at the zebra crossing and walk along to Goodmayes Baptist 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 bicycles not to be left inside the church during a Sunday morning service for reasons of Health & Safety.
