Horton Bank is situated on a major arterial road leading from Bradford to Halifax (A647).

The church is the only community facility serving this multi-cultural residential area. Sited in the centre of the Horton Bank area, it is an ideal point from which to reach the neighbourhood and, indeed, also serves as a well-known local landmark in the community. It is easily accessible by public transport with bus stops for both directions (Bradford and Halifax) situated in front of the building.

Horton Bank does not have a car park. However, free on street parking is available on the main road and side streets.
