Christ Church is situated on the corner of Springfield Ave (which is Summit's
main business street) and New England Ave (a side street lined with condos).
We have a small parking lot off of New England Ave (behind our complex)
which holds perhaps 20 cars.
During daytime on weekdays that lot and the entrance from it are reserved
for the Cornerstone Preschool use, including parent drop-offs and pick-ups.
We also have a short semicircular driveway in front
of our patio & main entrance on New England Ave which
has two handicapped parking spots.

on Springfield Ave, so for services & large events,

available on the street – but you may have to walk a few paces, so

but they are reserved for church staff.)
