By bus from Ealing Broadway station: Ealing Broadway is a major bus interchange served by several different routes with many stops in the vicinity of the station. Routes E1, E2, E7, E8, 83, and 207 all go to near the church. You must make sure that the bus is heading west, towards West Ealing and get off at the closest stop to the junction of the Uxbridge Road and Northfield Avenue.
By bus from Northfields station: Come out of the station and cross over the road. Turn right and you will see a bus stop. Do not use the bus stop on the same side of the road as Northfields station or you will go in the wrong direction! Take an E2 or E3 bus and get off at a stop called The Lido (ask the driver or a passenger to point this out to you; it is the stop just before the Uxbridge Road). Cross the road and turn into Mattock Lane, which is just before the bus stop, and you will see the church in front of you.
Walking from Ealing Broadway station: Come out of the station and turn left, and walk to the main road (the Uxbridge Road). Cross to the far side of this road and turn right so you are heading west (towards West Ealing). You will pass the Ealing Broadway Centre on your left; after a few minutes the shops will finish and there will be large office buildings on both sides of the road. You need to take the fourth road on the left after this stretch of office buildings, which is Chapel Road (just before a hair and beauty salon). Walk to the end of this road, turn left and you will see the church in front of you.
Walking from Northfields station: Come out of the station and turn right, and head north along Northfield Avenue (shops on both sides). After about 10 minutes the shops will finish and you should see some allotments on your right. Take the first turning on the right after the allotments. This is Mattock Lane and you will see the church in front of you.
Walking from West Ealing station: Come out of the station, cross over the road and turn right. Walk for a couple of minutes and you should come to a Natwest bank on your left, on the corner of a main road. Continue straight ahead by crossing over this road on to Northfield Avenue. Take the first turning on the left, which is Mattock Lane. You will see the church in front of you.
