Balfour Street is quite steep. As the road at last starts to level off, Arundel Street is on your right after about 300 metres. The Church is located about 30 metres along Arundel Street, on your left.

By car

The M62 motorway joins Leeds and Liverpool. The portion around Manchester forms part of the Manchester orbital road, and is numbered as the M60.

If travelling from Leeds, leave the M60 at junction 22 and turn toward onto the A672 (signposted ‘Saddleworth’ and ‘Oldham’). Take this road until its very end (about 8 miles). Warning: the A672 is often very steep, has many tights bends, and there are many speed cameras.

At the end, you will be facing a large carpet store, and with a huge Tesco ‘Extra’ superstore to your right. Turn right. You will still be on Huddersfield Road (the A62).

Almost immediately, turn left after the giant Carpet where a large white sign says ‘Precinct still open’. This is Dunkerley Street. Drive to its end (about 50 metres).

At the end of Dunkerley Street is a crossroads, with Greenacres Primary school on your right. Go straight ahead, cross Greenacres Road. Less than 5 metres after the crossroads, turn right into Balfour Street, and immediately left into Arundel Street. The church is located about 30 metres down the road, on your left.
