Plan A Visit

What to expect...

We’re here to make your first visit to Mariners Church a welcoming and enjoyable experience! Going to a new place can sometimes be confusing, so here are a few easy tips for your first visit:


The good news is we have lots of parking…and the best part is wherever you park, we have shuttles available for you. We’re located at the corner of Bonita Canyon Dr. and Newport Coast Dr (behind UCI). As you drive in, our parking pastors will point you in the right direction. Keep in mind, a lot of people attend services, so allow 10-15 minutes to park and take the shuttle to the Worship Center.

Mariners Kids

Mariners Kids offers fun, age appropriate programs for children infant-5th grade during all 3 weekend services in our children’s building, Port Mariners. The first floor is for infant–Pre K and the second floor is K–5th grade. If you have kids (especially little ones who travel with a lot of stuff like strollers, diaper bags, etc.) the closer you can park to Port Mariners, the better! There are parking lots directly in front of Port Mariners and to the side of the building (along Turtle Ridge Drive), offering convenient access to the entrances.

First time guests should visit one of our Welcome Harbors (located on both floors) to check in. Staff and volunteers will be able to answer any questions you might have.

Be sure to keep your claim tag handy as you will need it to pick up your child(ren) after service. If you have little ones, we will ask for your cell phone number to text you in case your child needs you.

Worship With Us

If you’re checking us out for the first time, it helps to know what to expect. Here’s some info to make your first experience an amazing one!

There are four convenient entrances to our Worship Center. The main entrance is located just in front of the Welcome Center on the patio, directly across the lawn from Port Mariners. Once inside the Worship Center, you’ll receive a bulletin and outline, giving an overview of what to expect during the service. The worship service lasts about an hour and 15 minutes and includes singing, announcements, teaching and response time. God speaks to each of us individually and often our response will flow naturally out of our connection with Him. Prayer is available at the end of the service by our prayer team. If your need is for healing, our elders are available in the prayer room near the main entrance. Although we do not take an offering, offering boxes are available throughout the Worship Center near the exits. We also provide online giving for your convenience.

Hang Out On the Patio

We encourage you to hang out on the patio after the service where volunteers and staff are available to answer any questions you might have about our ministries. Or, drop by the Welcome Center. We’d love to meet you and introduce you to some of our pastors, volunteers and staff. During the summer, we offer special events and activities on Saturday nights after the 5p service.
