Our church finder page is arranged so that Smart-phone users can easily navigate direct to a church using their phone. Simply select the church you want, click 'show on map' and then click 'Get Directions'.
Alternatively you are also welcome to use a specific church finder app designed for the iphone and released in the iTunes Store
For many Adventist churches in the UK and Ireland you can simply find the postcode by searching for the church on this website, and then enter it into your satellite navigation device. However, that may only get you within a half mile or so of the church.
If you have a TomTom or other Sat Nav device you can enter the locations of nearly all of our churches as a "Points of Interest" data file.
Download the two files below and add them INSIDE the map directory on your TomTom. (This may be labeled "Great_Britain_ map", "Western_and_Central_Europe", or a variation depending on which model or version of TomTom you have purchased.)
To download the files below right click and select "Save Target As..."

How to find a church
Start your TomTom device. Tap the main screen. Select "Navigate to", then "Point of Interest". "UK Adventist" should appear on your screen. If not, click on the arrow then scroll down to "UK Adventist".
You will see a list of the churches nearest to your location. If the church you want is further away then click on 'find' and type in the name of the church you want. Select the church, wait for the route to be calculated, follow the directions, then enjoy your worship!
We believe our church finder is 99% accurate. However, if you find an error, please let us know, preferably providing the exact coordinates in decimal format (eg. Cork church: 51.86849, -8.44201) or explaining exactly where on the map the church should be (eg. 500 meters south of the marked location on the corner of Smith Street and Brown Avenue). Email the details to firstname.lastname@example.org.
