Parking Options

Free parking is available by arrangement for those with particular needs.  Please contact the Church Office on 385 1546.

Parking during services

Underground parking is available for parishioners to use during services.  These are primarily for the elderly and infirm or those with small children. Please note that parking spaces for the Ministers and the Music Director are to be kept free at all times, including Sundays. The garage is open 30 minutes before the service and will be closed 30 minutes after the service has finished. Please note that a security swipe card will be needed to enter the garage outside of these times.

The parking building in Willis Street, just down from the Mercure Wellington Abel Tasman Hotel is open on Sundays from 9.00 am. This is a convenient location for St John’s.

Previously we were able to use some of the carparks at DB House, 119-125 Ghuznee St.  However, this building has now been sold, and after discussion with the new owner and the tenants, the parks used by St John’s on a Sunday are no longer available. Unfortunately, St John’s is not able to guarantee that the new tenants of the building will not have cars towed so if you have used these parks in the past please make other arrangements.

Parking during the week

St John’s in the City is embarking on a Seismic Strengthening and Painting Project on our Church Building.  This will mean that the area immediately surrounding the Church is now a Construction Zone.  The St John’s Centre will be open throughout this project, which we envisage will take about a year until the end of 2019.  Access to the St John’s Centre will be via Dixon St only and will be clearly signposted.  Please note that there will be no carparking available on site and the area of work will be safely and securely fenced off.  We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and will advise ahead of time should any noise be expected on any particular day.

The parking building in Willis Street, just down from the Abel Tasman Hotel is another convenient location for St John’s.
