Coastline events

If you’re new to the area or new to church, we’d love to help you connect with us here at Coastline. Most people’s first experience of church is on a Sunday where we hope you’ll receive a warm welcome and some great hospitality.
If you want to find out more about Coastline, we’d love to invite you to one of our Newcomers Meals. These meals are aimed at giving people new to Coastline the opportunity to meet some of our other leaders in a more relaxed environment, outside of the busyness of the Sunday services.

Get involved, take a look at some of our upcoming events.
