Getting There

The Lake Street Church is located at the intersection of Lake Street and Chicago Avenue in Evanston, Illinois.,+Evanston,+IL+60201/@42.0443032,-87.6808969,16z/data=!4m2!3m1!1s0x880fd01264b1c55d:0xbb38b96c3fdca573

If you are driving in on 94 (the Edens), exit at Dempster EAST, and continue to Chicago Avenue.  Turn left, and go two blocks to Lake Street.

The CTA’s Purple Line has a stop at Dempster, and from there, it is a short walk north  on Sherman Place to Lake Street. The Church is one block east from the intersection of Sherman and Lake Street.


Some free street parking is available.  There is information about Evanston parking here.    A map of parking lots is here.  Note that parking is free on Sunday and there are 4 lots near the church.

Two neighborhood churches – Immanuel Lutheran and First Presbyterian – have offered parking spaces for us to use during all of Friday evening and Saturday afternoon and evening. Passes for your dash will be available at the Welcome Desk for a $10 donation for the whole time.

This year the City of Evanston is NOT offering free parking during the holidays as they have in the past.  If you make a purchase at a participating business you can get 2 hours credited to your Park Evanston mobile app.  Rules are here.

Please note that it is always free to park in Evanston garages and lots on Sundays.
