Parking

When attending Christ Church services, classes and fellowship on Sunday morning, you may park free of charge in the lot behind Neighborhood House. Always display the “Attending Services” sign (available from an usher or the office) on your front dashboard and inside the back windshield, too!

This allows free parking on Market, American, and both sides of Second Streets, but not in the SEPTA bus zone or on Filbert St. If you receive a parking violations ticket while parking in the allowable spaces for Sunday or Wednesday services, leave the ticket and your name with our office.
