Weekend Service LIVE Stream:

The Bible tells us how important it is to gather together, and while we can’t meet at full capacity right now, we’re grateful to have Church Online every weekend. This is a great opportunity to invite others to church who may have never considered it before. There are no walls, no barriers and people can watch from the comfort of home. If you know someone who needs to hear the message of God’s love in a time of crisis, please share the links below. One invite could change their life forever! 

Saturday @ 5:00 PM
Sunday @ 9:00 AM
Sunday @ 11:00 AM

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

This same online community is also on Facebook Live or YouTube Live

Attend In-Person:

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.

At this time, all event organizers are ordered by BC Health Authorities to limit all public gatherings to less than 50 people. Starting next weekend (September 12th & 13th), we will re-open the following locations below to pre-registered audiences:

Downtown Campus (Saturday @ 5:00 PM or Sunday @ 9:00 AM or 11:00 AM)
Commercial Campus (Sunday @ 11:00 AM)
Pitt Meadows Education Center (Sunday @ 11:00 AM)
Richmond (Sunday @ 9:00 AM or 11:00 AM)

If you would like to register or learn more, please visit: coastalchurch.org/attend

Try Alpha Online:

Joining Alpha has never been easier! You can get started by visiting our Alpha Page, and learn how to participate with other guests in a simulated live environment. 

Each week will start with an Alpha video, which will be live-streamed for everyone with an option to participate in real-time chat with other viewers. Our Alpha hosts will also help viewers join breakout groups (via video chat) for discussion immediately after the video is finished.

Date & Time: starting September 15th

Small Groups:

As you have been hearing, right now it is not wise to meet together in groups. But it is wise to meet online with the various platforms that are available. This is a time to collaborate with our health officials to do everything possible to reduce the spread of the Coronavirus.

In light of that going forward we will be conducting all of our small groups using online platforms, such as Zoom, Skype and Google Hangouts. This includes life groups, freedoms sessions, Alpha and also our Saturday prayer meetings. Many of you have already made this transition and we thank you for your leadership. If you are unfamiliar with setting up such a group call you can find instructions on our website or don’t hesitate to call the church office for assistance.

Coastal Kids:

Our kids services may be suspended, but our team is still working on creating resources for parents to help during this season of self-isolation. This includes weekly videos from our Children’s Pastor as well as recommended resources hand-picked from our team! The best way to get updates is by downloading the Coastal Church app or by visiting the Coastal Kids webpage. 

Coastal Youth:

Youth services at all locations are currently suspended. However, our youth leaders want to stay connected during this time and send out some free resources to watch or download. Just like Coastal Kids, the best way to get updates is by downloading the Coastal Church app or by visiting the Coastal Youth webpage. 

Free Resources:

We’re excited to share church-wide access to an extensive, new video library called RightNow Media! It’s like the “Netflix of Video Bible Studies” and has a HUGE library of faith-based videos that you can access whenever and wherever you want — on your phone, iPad, computer, or at home on your TV.

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.
  • Do not share food, drinks, utensils, etc.
