The Church and Hall are not far from the Gillingham Gate road junction on the A289, to the east of the Medway Tunnel, and adjacent to the Police Station. Coming from either direction along the A289, look for the signs for the B2004 (Local Traffic).
Arriva bus 176 (Hazlemere Drive) from Chatham Railway Station and Chatham Waterfront Bus Station stops near the Church - ask for the Nasir Mosque stop. This service runs every 20 minutes during the week, but only half-hourly on Sundays.
Buses 116 (Hempstead Valley) and 191 (Universities/Strand) stop fairly close to the Church (116 - the Medway Road stop just before Mid-Kent College, and 191 - the stop opposite the Walnut Tree Club), but do not run on Sundays.
Buses 101 (Gillingham Depot) and 182 (Twydall) run from Waterfront on Sundays as well as frequently during the week. Alight at Jeffery Street, and walk down James Street/Richmond Road to Milburn Road. Follow the blue signs to the Church (it's a 10-15 minute walk!).
Gillingham (Kent) is the nearest railway station - on leaving the station, turn right, walk along Jeffery Street round the left-hand bend, and along to James Street, turn right again (James Street soon becomes Richmond Road), and follow the blue sign along Milburn Road, about 15 minutes' walk from the station.
