The church is situated in Canmore Street in the Historic Town of Dunfermline in the Kingdom of Fife, the one time seat of the King of Scots, burial place of the body of Robert the Bruce and birthplace of Andrew Carnegie. Canmore Street runs parallel to, and south of the High Street and in line with the Maygate. The church building sits between the Faith Mission Bookshop and a short term car park, not far from the Carnegie Library.

By Road (see map)
Dunfermline is clearly signposted  from the M90 just north of the Forth Road Bridge.
Approaching from the North take junction 3 and follow the A907 (4th exit from the Junction 3 roundabout) into Dunfermline. On reaching the fourth roundabout (the second roundabout after the football ground) take the second exit (signposted to the town centre) and follow the road to the pedestrianised area. Turn left into New Row, down the hill and take the first right on to Canmore Street. The church is on the right side about 200m along the road.
Approaching from the South either exit the M90 at Junction 2 or remain on the M90 to Junction 3, being careful not to take the first exit to the A92, and follow the A907 as above.
From Junction 2 follow the Motorway exit road to the roundabout and take the A823 into Dunfermline. Continue on the A823 past Asda on the right to the roundabout under railway viaduct. At this roundabout take the second exit and follow the road up the hill to the next roundabout. At this roundabout take the first exit (signposted to the town centre) and follow the road to the pedestrianised area. Turn left into New Row, down the hill and take the first right on to Canmore Street. The church is on the right side about 200m along the road.
