church has only three parking spaces, all of
which are reserved for church staff
and should not be used by the congregation
or by visitors. These spaces may be used for pickup and drop-off
during Old Sloop Coffeehouse performances, the Old Sloop
Fair and other such
occasions. They are accessed
by the driveway off School St. that is
directly across from Stone Barn Lane, next
to the church's Law Building. Please note that
the driveway and parking area are shared
with our neighbors. Please do not
block the driveway, please park only on the
church side of the parking area, and please be
respectful of our neighbors!
There are parking kiosks that accept quarters and credit/debit cards
on School Street, Main Street and some other downtown streets. There
are meters that accept quarters on Boradway, but the word is these will
soon change to kisosks. Rates and time limits vary. The spaces nearest the
church cost $1.00 per hour, have a 4 hour limit, and are
checked 7 days a week from 10:00AM until 6:00 pm. The paid spaces are almost always occupied in
the summer when the weather is good. There are almost always spaces
available Sunday mornings, and the Rockport police do not currently issue parking
tickets while worship services are in progress at the downtown churches.
There is free parking on the streets just out of the downtown area
on School Street, Main Street, High Street, and others. Many of these spaces are a
short walk from the church. These spaces are also in high demand at peak
There is parking for Rockport residents on T Wharf and in the lot
near Town Hall just off Broadway, both of which are a short walk from the church.
Do not park in resident-only areas unless your car bears a Rockport parking sticker.
The Rockport police are zealous about defending resident-only parking for town residents.
- Rockport offers a Park ‘n Ride service during the busiest
times of the year. The Park ‘n Ride lot is adjacent to the transfer station
on upper Main Street, about a mile from the downtown. Parking is free, and the
Cape Ann Transportation Authority offers an inexpensive shuttle service between the Park
‘n Ride lot and the downtown. See details
