Heaven Reaching Earth

Have you ever lost hope? Longed for peace? Thousands of years ago, the world was waiting. Its people were waiting not just for help or for guidance, but for rescue. They had been promised a Saviour – one who would come and deliver them from their pain and loneliness.

And then, one day, he arrived. Heaven reached earth the day Jesus was born. Now, generations later, we join in this celebration that our hope, our peace has finally come. We celebrate that, through the birth of Jesus, the promise has been fulfilled.


Christmas Gala baNquet

The Coastal Christmas Gala Banquet has always been a church family highlight. After a 3 year hiatus, the banquet is back and we’re pulling out all the stops! Join us for a night full of laughter, celebration of the past year, and excitement for what’s ahead. Come dressed up and ready to party with the rest of your Coastal Family!

Business by the book

Christmas Breakfast

Entrepreneurs and corporate leaders often come against waves of opposition and seemingly insurmountable challenges. Each battle demanding of us more then we can bear, the thought of succumbing to failure too great. But what happens when giving up isn’t an option?

Come hear this story of survival of the 1994 Rwandan Genocide, as Chris Karuhije shares what true perseverance amounts to. Prepare for one of the most riveting leadership lessons ever shared – a full 25 years in the making.
