60 Highland Street, West Newton, Massachusetts 02465
There is a parking area by the 60 Highland Street entrance with a short ramp to a door leading immediately to the sanctuary. However, the ramp is steep and the door is heavy. If you have a helper, they can enter there on Sunday morning and ask an usher for help finding the more accessible route:
1. Park in the lot off Chestnut Street and follow the walkway behind the building to the door with the Accessibility symbol and push it to open.
2. Turn left at the end of the hall and left again to enter Fellowship Hall. Go to the elevator on the left at the far end of the room.
3. Call the elevator and take it to the top level.
4. Open and exit to the top of the stairs, then take a left to enter the sanctuary.
You can also call the office during the week and ask for someone to meet you in the parking lot.
