For people using the IT corridor (Rajiv Gandhi Salai)
Take the Velachery bypass road at SRP Tools junction aka the right turn in to Velachery / Tambaram Main Road. Its a 3 Km drive from SRP tools to the church. As you approach TCS office ( dull orange building on the right), take the second left side road leading to Baby nagar & Seshadripuram. This is just below a foot overbridge so you cannot miss this left turn. Then read the paragraph below that talks about how to proceed from Baby Nagar.
From Adyar, Tambaram, Saidapet etc
Take a bus to Vijay Nagar Bus Stand (or some may call Velachery). Final stop is normally the bus stand (which is just a simple open shed), where the Vijayanagar Junction too is. From here follow the instructions mentioned below.
From Vijay Nagar Junction / Bus Stand
For people using the Velachery Main road ( from Tambaram, Madipakkam etc.), come towards Vijay nagar junction & take the Taramani Bypass road towards Dr. Agarwal's Eye Clinic (big blue color board as of Oct 2015). Take the right turn in to Baby Nagar (you will see a foot overbridge, the turn in to Baby Nagar is right below this and it is BEFORE TCS, AFTER Dr. Agarawal's Eye Clinic). But note, there is a median that does not allow you to take a right in to this road directly, hence take the right turn (L-Turn) in to the service lane 20 metres before the foot overbridge and go till the bottom of the foot overbridge and then take a right and follow instructions mentioned below for "From Baby Nagar". There is a yellow board saying "Baby Nagar". Take care you may miss it.
From Baby Nagar
Ask the route to the Perungudi MRTS Station or else in words :-), from the main road (Velachery Taramani Road) take the turn in to "Baby Nagar", and go straight. You will cross one junction. Keep going straight till the road takes a L turn (~ half km from main road). There are no other turns. Keep going straight and you will reach a second junction. Here too go straight and you will find the Church on your left. The Perungudi station will be on your right (after a row of buildings and in a parallel road).
The buses plying on Tharamani Bypass Road to Velachery (Vijaya Nagar Bus Stand) (Through Baby Nagar) are: M7, 15M, 70M
While coming on the Beach- Velacehry MRTS line, look out for the church from within the train before getting down at Perngudi. Ofcourse, don't forget to get off the train :-)
