Parish Location:

St Alban’s Church and the Parish Offices are located at 3 Pembroke Street, Epping NSW 2121. The Church is open every day and is very close to Epping Railway Station on Sydney’s Main Northern Line, which is also the terminus for several bus services.

St Aidan’s Church is located at 30 Downing Street, West Epping, a few minutes’ walk south of Ray Road. Bus services operate along Ray Road and Carlingford Road.

 


 

Public Transport:

The Parish’s larger church, St Alban’s, is particularly well served by Public Transport both on weekdays and on weekends and public holidays.

Car Parking and Car Pooling:

The parish is served by several major roads: Epping Road from the east (Sydney City), Beecroft Road from the north (Beecroft, Pennant Hills, Hornsby), Carlingford Road from the west (Carlingford, Parramatta, Castle Hill) and Blaxland Road from the south (Eastwood, Ryde, Strathfield), as well as the M2 Expressway which links the City to Seven Hills. The snag is the resultant traffic bottleneck at the Epping Overbridge which links these major roads (excepting the M2) and crosses the Main Northern Line Railway. However, with discretion, car travel can still be viable.

• St Alban’s has limited off-street car parking facilities for people attending the church, augmented by free street parking (one-hour limit between 08:30 and 18:00, Monday – Friday, and 08:30 and 12:30, Saturdays).

• St Aidan’s has no off-street parking, but adequate parking along the residential Downing Street.

Parishioners are encouraged to car-pool: this is environmentally and economically sound, and there are some parishioners for whom there is no other means to attend church. Those who need transport assistance, or who can provide assistance, are encouraged to contact the Parish Office (+61 2 9876 3362). The office is there to help those who, through illness, accident or lack of resources, need assistance in getting to church, doctor’s appointments, or to undertake those requirements of life that necessitate transport.
