If you are visiting for the first time, we will not embarrass you, have you stand up, or ask you to give money. We know that many people want to check out the church and “be anonymous” for awhile—and that’s fine with us! Come in, enjoy the relaxed atmosphere, and see if this is the church for you.
Each of our services typically last 1 hour 15 minutes. We always start with 15-20 minutes of singing followed by a 30-40 minute message from our senior pastor, David Koop. Parking is available with a discounted rate at 1166 Alberni (Lot/1662). Our parking volunteers will help assist you with parking instructions upon arrival. Our 11:00am service on Sunday is typically our busiest, we advise arriving early to ensure seating.
There are many ways to get involved. You can begin by joining a Life Group, a small gathering (between 6 to 12 people) that meets on a regular basis to ‘do life’ together. It is an effective way for everyone to feel personally connected to the church community and to learn and grow our faith in an intimate and supportive environment.
The Connect Courses are a four part membership course that will make it easier and faster for you to learn more about Coastal Church, and to find out more about yourself and your ministry within the local church. It is also a necessary step towards getting involved by volunteering or leading/hosting a Life Group.
At Coastal Church your children are a top priority. Our nurseries are clean, safe, and staffed with loving workers. We offer a dynamic children’s ministry called Kingdom Explorers which are not just about having fun, but also about teaching kids about the bible.
Jr Youth (grades 6-8) meet every Sunday during our 9:30am service. There is always something awesome going on at Coastal Youth; from powerful worship and teaching, epic games, events, mission trips, retreats, amazing people and always a good time.
