There is hardly any parking at the church. It is best to park your car in the parking garage “Q-Park Stadhuisplein” (accessible via Keizersgracht / Wal) or “Heuvelgalerie” (accessible via Vestdijk). Both parking garages are always open and a few tens of meters walking distance from the church.
You can park your bicycle in a guarded place during shopping hours and evenings in De Heuvel bicycle parking on Catharinaplein (Ten Hagestraat / Jan van Lieshoutstraat intersection).
There are also some racks directly at the back entrance of the church. Note: these are unguarded!
If you come for a rehearsal in one of the side rooms: at the back left of the church is a wooden door that leads to the coffee and choir room (if necessary, please ring the bell). Outside opening hours you can use the side or back entrance. When you are in front of the church, walk to the left past the church. The side entrance is straight ahead: at the wall with glass tiles is a door with a bell. You can reach the back entrance by walking left in front of the office building and then right into the corridor and right again through the gate. Continue there, and walk past the parking spaces up to a staircase and a door on the right. The bell is by the window on the right.
