Make your way to central London either by tube, or by an express shuttle. (From Heathrow, the tube link will bring you in on the Piccadilly line.) Change at Green Park and get the east-bound Jubilee line, before alighting at Canada Water.
For other tube journeys, make your way to Canada Water station (Jubilee Line).
Exit the station via the exit labelled 'Buses', and turn left as you exit the building. At the traffic lights, cross the road right and walk to the end of the road. Turn right again at the T-Junction, and continue walking up towards the roundabout. After about 0.1 of a mile, turn right at Neptune Street and walk along this road for a few minutes. You will then reach Albion Street, where you turn right onto this road and walk around 75yrds until you reach the Church on your left.
For Overground journeys, make your way to Rotherhithe Station. From here, exit the station and cross the road. Walk past a small local shop on your left, and then walk a short distance before turning right onto Albion Street. Then walk down Albion Street, and the Finnish Church will be on your right. There is a flag outside although this is not always visible- it's rather weather dependant!
Please note that the Finnish Church does not have any parking available. There is street parking available occasionally, but this is short term and unpredictable..
