Our Response to Social Issues and COVID-19
Summer 2021
Covid-19 Response & Re-Open Plan

Our doors swing open once again and we’re ready to worship and celebrate this new season of life! There is no pre-registration needed and we will purpose together to give physical distancing as you feel comfortable.

We encourage our Coastal Family to follow the guidelines and precautions set out by our provincial government and if you feel ill, we ask that you continue to join a service online as well as receive prayer on our website or with an online chat host during the service.

August 27th Update

According to latest PHO, mask-wearing is not mandatory for church services but it is a requirement at rented venues (i.e. hotels & cinemas).

We ask those over the age of 12 to use their discretion in wearing a mask at our Downtown and Commercial Campus. All other Coastal Church campuses, microsites, meetings and events, follow the mandatory mask requirements.

Coastal Church will continue our weekend live online services (kids and youth included) as well as continue with the safety procedures for our in-person services.

We purpose to ensure our buildings are thoroughly cleaned weekly, with high touch points sanitized between services and social distancing encouraged. We purpose to have our time of worship safe, while remaining to be a meaningful place where we can assemble in person to declare our praise to Jesus Christ, hear God’s Word and receive it!

Watch Church Online

You can head to live.coastalchurch.org to experience worship, the message, and the community of your church family through live chat and prayer.

Attend In-Person

Our weekend services have been redesigned to accommodate new safety procedures and physical distancing. We can't wait to see you!

Help reduce your risk of infection: 
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Using soap and water is the single most effective way of reducing the spread of infection.
  • If a sink is not available, alcohol based hand rubs (ABHR) can be used to clean your hands as long as they are not visibly soiled. If they are visibly soiled, use a wipe and then ABHR to effectively clean them.
  • Do not touch your face, eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a disposable tissue or the crease of your elbow when you sneeze or cough.
  • Regularly clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces.
