theBarn is easy to get to by car or by bus during the week. We have ample parking. If you live in the area and need transport to the service, please email us with your phone number and location and we will arrange someone to collect you.
By Bus — Sundays
Sunday buses stop at the War Memorial in Bidford. To reach theBarn, walk along the High Street until you reach Tower Hill. Cross the road, walk a few paces to your left, and then go right along Waterloo Road. The distance is 3/4 of a mile, and will take most people about 12 minutes. None of the buses will get you there in time for the start of the service, though they should be fine for getting back.
Please email us to arrange a lift to get there. We have members coming from the entire area, and in most cases it will not be a problem to arrange a lift.
