How to get here

We are at the corner of Brooklyn Ave NE and NE 47th St in the University District. Lots of bus routes stop within a block of the church. (and we'll be super close to a light rail station... when it opens in 2021...)

There is free parking until noon on Sunday in the lot south of the church. Street parking is free on Sundays and after 8:00 PM but otherwise $1.00—$2.50/hour. North of 50th St, street parking is free.

ADA Accessibility

The Sanctuary can only be accessed via external stairs or by a stair lift. To use the stair lift, enter through the glass doors on 47th Ave NE. An usher will guide you to the lift, and help you use it.

The Chapel is at ground level, is wheelchair accessible, and has access to a ground-level all-gender bathroom down the hall. Enter through the dark green doors on 47th Ave NE.

Wilson Hall is at ground level, is wheelchair accessible, and has access to a ground-level all-gender bathroom down the hall. Enter through the glass doors on 47th Ave NE.

The Undercroft can only be accessed by a set of internal stairs or a short stair lift. To use the stair lift, go down the alley between Brooklyn Ave and University Way, and use the dark green doors on the corner, by the white external stairs.
