From the Walt Whitman Bridge:
On the Walt Whitman Bridge, get in the far right lane. Follow signs to I95 south. The ramp curves hard to the right and then forks. Take the right fork. Go through a traffic light and then merge on to I95 south. Stay on 95 south. You will go over a bridge. Take exit marked Bartram Avenue (2nd one after the bridge). Follow Bartram Ave. through 2 lights. Turn right at the third light on to 84th street. Follow 84th street through 2 lights. Turn right (turn out lane) at the third light after passing a cemetery (there is a gas station there and large petroleum tanks on the left) onto Calcon Hook road. Follow Calcon Hook road through a stop sign and a light. At the second light, turn right onto Chester Pike. Get in the left lane and stay there. Follow the road through 3 lights. At the 4th light, turn left onto Main Street (there is a large cathedral on the far corner). Follow the road past Mercy Fitzgerald Hospital. Pass through 4 lights -- 2 are at the hospital, the 3rd is right after it, and the 4th is in the center of Lansdowne (stay in right lane). Pass through the 4th light and the main business district of town. Watch for a Wawa market on the right. Turn left on Strafford Avenue JUST BEFORE the Wawa. You now are at the church. The main sanctuary is on your immediate right. Parking can be found on the streets near the church.
From I-476 (the blue route) south:
Travel south on I476 (the blue route). Take exit 4 to Upper Darby and get in the right lane ( becomes an exit only lane). The ramp will fork after a gentle curve. Take the left fork for a left turn on to route 3 (West Chester Pike). Get in the second from right lane (be careful here - there are many lanes - the 2 lanes on the far left are left turn only - the 1 lane on the far right is right turn only - you want to go straight). Go straight on route 3, and pass the Manoa Shopping Center. Continue straight. After you pass Kohl's (on the right side) get in the far right lane and turn onto Lansdowne Avenue. Stay in the right lane. You will pass Acme, Upper Darby High School, Delaware County Memorial Hospital, and an intersection with trolley tracks. Stay in your lane and continue going straight. You are now in Lansdowne. Continue through the residential area past the Presbyterian Church (on right at Greenwood Ave.). Look for a Wawa market on the left. The Garden Church is on the right. Turn right JUST PAST the Wawa and the church. The main sanctuary is on your immediate right. Parking can be found on the streets near the church.
