Attend In-Person

Our locations have re-opened at a limited capacity and require pre-registration before attending in-person.

Choose a Meeting Time & Location

Coastal Church is committed to creating an environment that meets government recommendations for safety. To make that possible, our weekend services have been redesigned to accommodate new safety procedures and physical distancing. This includes significantly reduced capacity and adjusted service times.

Common Questions

Are reservations required?

Yes. You will be required to register before attending an in-person service. Seating will be provided on a first come, first served basis. Physical distanced seating is available at each location with assistance by our team.

If you are not able to attend, we ask that you withdraw your name online as soon as possible. We will adhere to the 50 person maximum and it would be unfortunate if we didn’t give every available seat an opportunity to be filled!

How far in advance can I register?

In-person registration will reset each week, following the Sunday services. In order to accommodate each guest and prepare our buildings, registration will close every Saturday at 1:00 PM.

Why is Crosstown Campus not meeting?

The Crosstown Campus meeting location (International Village Cinemas) is currently unavailable for weekend gatherings. We’re encouraging everyone who considers Crosstown their home campus to join us at Commercial Drive!

Why is the audience capacity so small?

At this time, all event organizers are ordered by BC Health Authorities to limit all public gatherings larger than 50 people. This includes indoor and outdoor sporting events, conferences, meetings, concerts, theatres, religious gatherings or other similar events.

The timing for a safe restart for activities requiring large gatherings is still to be determined as part of Phase four of BC’s Restart Plan. Coastal Church will expand building capacity once the provincial government has approved such gatherings.

What is the difference between a studio audience & watch party?

When attending a service Downtown, you will join in as a participant in our Studio Audience! Because you’re joining a live recording, you must arrive at a specific time before filming begins. The sanctuary looks somewhat different with production equipment, lighting and physical distance seating, but it’s a good different. You’ll have some insight into how Coastal creates a weekly live online service, along with stepping into the recording as the ‘live’ audience to respond both in worship and receiving the Word spoken.

When attending a service at Commercial, Pitt Meadows or Richmond Campus, you will join other viewers for a LIVE Watch Party! Watch Parties are just like watching church online, but together!

What sanitization & safety measures will be in place?

Our team will frequently disinfect surfaces throughout the building and we will sanitize the auditoriums between services. Hand-sanitizing stations will be placed throughout the building. Water fountains, food-services, and coffee stations will not be available at this time. All seat-back materials, papers, and pens will be removed.

We will also check your temperature when entering. If a fever is present (normal temperature range is 36.1˚C – 37.2˚C), we will ask you to come back when you’re healthy. We’re thankful we still have the worship service online for you to participate in, where the majority of our connections are made! We also pray you would have a complete recovery.

What about face coverings?
We will adhere to our province’s decision regarding mandatory masks. Masks are strongly encouraged. Please be prepared to wear a mask upon entering, throughout worship, as well as when exiting. This is a done as a consideration to those you will be worshipping with.
What if I am considered “high-risk”?

If you or someone in your family is considered “high-risk” for severe illness, we encourage you to continue worshipping with us online.

What if I don't feel comfortable coming in person yet?

We completely understand, and we want you to feel comfortable. We invite you to continue worshipping with us online at
