Directions & Parking

Eliot Church can be reached by the MBTA 57 Kenmore bus, which runs very regularly. Express buses stop at 400 Centre Street, a 3 minute walk to the church, but they do not run on Sundays (they include these buses: 501/503 Brighton to Downtown/Copley via Watertown; 504 Watertown/Newton Corner to Downtown; 553/554 Downtown via Turnpike, 556 Newton Corner, 558 Downtown).

The nearest T station is Newton Center on the Green line about 2 miles from Eliot farther up Centre Street. From here you can walk, or take the 52 Watertown Square via Parker bus that stops at 400 Centre Street (which does not run on Sundays).

Mass Pike (Route 90) Eastbound: Take Exit 17. At the top of the ramp, take a right at the stop light, on to Centre Street. Eliot Church is on the left at the first intersection, at the northeast corner of Centre and Church Street.

Mass Pike Westbound: Take Exit 17 – at the top of the ramp, stay to the left, heading to Newton. Go left around the hotel in the center of the roundabout. On the south side of the roundabout, take a right at the intersection on to Centre Street (heading toward Newton Centre). Eliot Church is on the left at the first set of lights.

From the South: From the VFW parkway take Dedham Street Westbound. Take a right onto Parker Street, cross Route 9 and take a right onto Centre Street in Newton Center. Continue down Centre Street and Eliot will be on the right at the intersection of Centre and Church Streets.

From the North: Eliot is most easily accessed taking Galen Street South where it intersects Route 20 in Watertown Center. Continue Southbound until the road ends at the entrance to the Turnpike. Take a right, and go left around the hotel in the center of the roundabout. On the south side of the roundabout, take a right at the intersection on to Centre Street (heading toward Newton Centre). Eliot Church is on the left at the first set of lights.

Parking in the church lot off Church Street is limited – but there is plenty of parking on the streets around Eliot Church. There is also a parking lot across from the front of Eliot Church (across Centre Street on Richardson Street) with meters.
