Chestnut Street Baptist Church is located at 29 Chestnut Street in Camden, Maine.
Parking here in Camden, especially during the summer months, can be a challenge. On Sundays parking is available in the Allen Insurance parking lot – in the back of the church and can be accessed by two streets.
1. Elm Street (Route 1) – simply turn into the alley by Allen Financial.
2. Off of Chestnut Street, take the alley along the east side of the church back to the parking lot.
During the week parking on the streets is limited to two hours, parking on the weekends is not limited by the two hour rule.
We have a traditional New England church building – “Ya can’t git there from here.” So let us help you navigate our building.
Front Door (Main Entrance)
When you arrive, if you park on the street in front of our building, enter through the front door. Upon entering the front doors, our sanctuary is up the staircase on the second floor.
If you first need to drop off your children in our nursery (infant – five-years-old), follow the signs and pass through the Fellowship Hall in front of you, to the door on the other side of the room (to the left), pass through the kitchen to the back hallway, follow that hallway straight back to our nursery, on the right. After dropping your children off, follow the signs and return the way you came. Join us upstairs for the service!
If you park in the lot available behind our building, you can enter the church through our back door. On your immediate left is our nursery if you need to drop off your children (infant – five-years-old). After dropping off your children, follow the signs to the sanctuary (to the right, through the kitchen, through the fellowship hall, up the stairs).
If you are mobility impaired, we have an elevator accessible from the paved driveway to the right of the building. The elevator can also be accessed from the Fellowship Hall on the first floor of our building.
Sunday School Location
If you are here for Sunday school, our Adult Classes are located on the first floor in the Fellowship Hall and Parlor (next to the kitchen). Our teen and children’s classes are all on the second floor in the Sunday school wing. Follow the signs to the back staircase and up to the Sunday school wing.
