Parking nearby is rather more problematic.

The two best places to park are at Asda and the Union Street Car Park.

Access to Asda is via Iliffe Way and then a couple of minutes walk past the store via Market Pl and Buttermarket to Church Walk.

The Union St. car park is accessed via Union St West, off Gipping Way, then following left to the Short stay car park.
There is a walk-way directly through to the road opposite the church.
 
See image below – St. Peter’s and the two specified parking areas are highlighted in yellow boxes. Route from the road to the Union St West car park and walking routes from there and Asda are shown with yellow lines.
