The Christmas Experience: Journey to Bethlehem

Take part in a unique experience as you and your family walk through Bethlehem. Receive a bag of coins as you enter and start spending them in over 21 shops; make a candle and light it at the temple, check out the bakery and get fresh made bread, find the music shop and listen to local artists, and many more shops beckon you to experience them. Watch for the Roman guards as they patrol Bethlehem looking for beggars and thieves.

There are many things to smell, taste and hear as you become part of the Journey to Bethlehem. As you leave, don’t miss the living Nativity with live animals and baby Jesus.

The Story of Christmas

This Christmas, make it an authentic celebration you’ll never forget.

A unique musical and theatrical event in celebration of the meaning of Christmas — an exploration of the traditional story surrounding the birth of Jesus in the context of worship. The production features powerfully moving and beautiful music of Christmas, along with warmth, humor and an inspiring, timely message for this season. It’s the story of Christmas like you’ve never experienced it before — told from both a modern and traditional perspective — an encounter that invites worship and adoration.

Coastal Church is pleased to present the story of the birth of Jesus Christ through the lens of the biblical account. This year’s event will be presented through the traditional format of Coastal Church’s well known grand celebration services. Get ready to worship and enter the experience like never before.

Coastal Church believes the cultural relevance of the church can herald the ancient and transcendent truth of Scripture— the source of our wonderful redemptive story. We seek to be a creative, faithful, missional church that aims to engage people of all kinds, from the heart, to present the Good News of redemption and freedom in Christ. We are thrilled to do this through culture, art, and media that reveals the authentic person and presence of Jesus Christ. Join us, along with thousands of fellow Vancouverites and people from around the world who have already experienced this journey.
