GLOUCESTER – Coastal Church, which has locations in Yorktown, Hampton and Chesapeake, is building a sanctuary on a 5-acre site in Gloucester.

The 10,000-square foot building is being developed by Zandler Development, which is based in Gloucester, and will be on Hickory Fork Road behind the Wawa off George Washington Memorial Highway. According to project manager Kenneth Harris, the building should be ready sometime in 2023.

The church has been holding services at 6338 George Washington Memorial Highway, just a few miles north of the new site.

Coastal Church, a nondenominational church, was formed in a merger of Tidewater Community Church and Bay Rivers Community Church. Its first service was held March 3, 2002.

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at
