The Ark

How to find us

We meet close to the city centre at:

The Ark Church,
43 Monkgate,
York
YO31 7PB

By Car:
To park your car in Sainsbury's Car Park YO31 7JB (£3.50 for two hours, Pay & Display - money back if you spend £10 or more in the store), approach from Foss Islands Road. Once past the crossroads junction, funnel into the lane for the car park on the right, OR if approaching from Huntington Road, Heworth Green or Monkgate, take the Foss Bank turnoff at the roundabout and immediately turn right into Sainsbury's Car park.

Once parked, head towards the front entrance to Sainsbury's and follow the nearby ramp (look for red bricks and some bike racks). Turn left at the top and follow the path, turning right to walk between the black fences. At the end of that street, turn right, cross the road (using the crossing) and you'll find us on your left.

To park your car in Monk Bar Car Park YO31 7QS (£2.30 per hour, Pay & Display), either approach from Foss Islands Road and carry straight on into Lord Mayor's Walk then turn right into Monk Bar car park, OR approach from Gillygate and turn left into Lord Mayor's Walk and then left into Monk Bar Car Park, OR exit the city walls through Monk Bar and turn left onto Lord Mayor's Walk and then right into Monk Bar car park.

Park near the bottom of the car park and follow the arrow on this photo through the blue gate down the side of the NHS health clinic. At the bottom you will see a barrier stopping you walking out, but look for the footpath on the right and go down that. As you reach the roadside, turn left and walk about 50 yards to the church entrance on the same side of the road. There is a ramp for access, as well as stairs at the front of the church building.

By Bus:

There is a bus stop outside the church (Trinity Methodist Church), which is serviced by numbers 12,13,13A,14,16A,19,90,180,181 & 186
