Saint John’s Church is on Forton Road, near the Crossways.
You’ll find us next door to the Crown Bingo hall (the Criterion), opposite Tesco Express (which used to be Madeline’s pub).  Our postcode is PO12 4TQ.

By bus:
Bus numbers 10, 11 and E1 all stop within a minute’s walk of the Church – ask for the Criterion or the Crossways.

By bicycle:
Gosport has a good network of cycle routes, and the main cycle track passes right by the Church.
Here is a PDF of the Gosport cycle map: Gosport Cycle Map

By train:
Ha ha. Gosport hasn’t had a working train station for about 50 years.
But if you’re coming from further afield, get the train to Portsmouth Harbour, then come across to Gosport on the wonderful Gosport Ferry.  From the Ferry, it’s about a 15 minute walk or a short bus ride to the Church.

By car:
There is some parking in front of the Church, but it is limited.  If you’re coming to a wedding or funeral, parking at the frontage will be reserved for official cars.  You may be able to park in nearby side streets – but please don’t try and use the car parks opposite the Church (Tesco’s and Garland Court), as you may find yourself getting clamped!  The nearest public car park is a couple of minutes’ walk up the road at Whites Place – drive up Forton Road towards Fareham, and turn left at the parking sign. With good bus routes and cycle tracks nearby (not to mention the benefits to the environment), we’d advise leaving the car at home if you possibly can.
