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.
