WHERE SHOULD I PARK?
- FREE parking is available in the Parkway Garage located at 44 S. 16th St about two blocks from the Philadelphia Film Center. This garage is beneath the Westin Hotel and Shops at Liberty Place.
- You can enter the garage to your left as you drive north on 16th St away from Chestnut St (click here for a street view from Google for this entrance), or to your left as you drive south on 17th St away from Market St (click here for street view).
- Obtain a parking ticket as usual when you enter the garage. Before or after the service, just ask one of our ushers for a parking validation ticket. When you leave the garage, insert first your regular parking ticket followed by the parking validation ticket you obtained from the usher.
HOW DO I GET THERE VIA SEPTA/PATCO?
It’s easy to use public transit to get to the Philadelphia Film Center via SEPTA or PATCO. The Philadelphia Film Center is located near the 15th St. Station on the Market/Frankford Line, City Hall Station on the Broad St. Line, as well as many bus lines. We are also convenient to the 15/16th and Locust PATCO station.
What to Expect
We encourage you to plan your arrival at least 15 minutes ahead of our service times to grab some coffee, stop by our “new here” area to speak with a volunteer, or check in your children to our Freedom Kids area.
We have childcare available for children from ages 6 months (or able to sit on their own) through 2 years-old and a dynamic children’s church program, Freedom Kids, for ages 3 years-old through the fifth grade. Our children’s church workers are dedicated to keeping your children safe and helping them have a great church experience that is relevant to their age.
Our services begin with a time of dynamic singing and worship led by a diverse band of worship leaders, followed by a relevant message from the Bible from a pastor or other leader. The services usually last about 60 minutes.
What to Wear
Wear whatever you feel most comfortable wearing out and about, and you’ll fit right in. Most people wear casual weekend attire.
