How to find us
If you are using a SatNav to find us, the best post code to put in is ME13 8GZ. This will take you to Church Road, off East Street, where you will find yourself facing the south side of the building. Entry to the church is via the south porch (the west door is used for ceremonies and parades only). If you are coming to the church on foot from the town centre, we are hidden behind Tesco's - walk along the front of the store and go down the steps on the far right of the building, then turn left - or walk along Church Street from the Court Street/Abbey Street/Quay Lane junction, opposite Creek Creative Studios. St Mary of Charity church and churchyard is open between 9 am and 3 pm November to end March, 9 am to 5 pm April to end October.
