We have a parking lot behind our church with available spaces for visitors on Sunday morning. It can be entered from the Channing Street side of the building.
UC Berkeley lots are no longer available for free parking on Sunday mornings. Members of the First Church community will need to pay the Sunday morning rate.
At other times of the week, our lot is open for public paid parking. Members with a First Church parking sticker can park for free while attending church events.
