|Parking and Accessibility|
Entrances - The main entrance to First Parish (for Sunday services and other ceremonies in the Sanctuary) is through the green doors facing the town common on The Great Road. An accessible entrance (and our main entrance during the week) with the elevator is the entry on the right side of the building - on Elm Street. In addition, on Sundays only, the door on the South Street side by the Memorial Garden is open for access to the church.
Parking at First Parish is primarily on-street parking surrounding the church building on the common. On Sundays, we set aside four spaces by the Elm Street door for parishioners who need handicapped accessibility. Arriving at the Elm Street entrance, for a Sunday Service, there is a large temporary sign to direct traffic towards the Bedford Town Center where there is additional parking. Another option is to park in the Sovereign Bank parking lot on the corner of The Great Road and Hancock Street.
