We have a small parking lot on the side of the church for about 7 cars. We have accessible parking spots there, and like to keep this lot available for anyone needing assistance. There is an accessible ramp located here.
During Sunday Worship Service, parking is available in the Melrose Public Library parking lot, located across the street from the church. In addition, plenty of street parking is available in front of the church and on the side streets around the church. Please pay attention to parking signs! While there is no time-limit on Sundays, there are time-limits at other times, and parking may only be on one-side of a street. For large events such as weddings, additional parking is available in the municipal lot behind Memorial Hall, a block southeast of the church (access via Main street – see Google map above).
See www.cityofmelrose.org for “Parking Regulations”.
There are bike racks across the street at the library, and bikes can also be locked along any of the the black-iron railings of the church (please not on the wheelchair ramp, to keep it accessible)
