We’re the only church on Clearwater Beach!

Chapel by the Sea is an interdenominational Christian church. Emphasizing spiritual freedom and openness, we welcome people from different backgrounds and traditions into our fellowship. 

The Chapel works to achieve this mission through: 

  • theology that is progressive, non-doctrinal, and focused on an open exploration of our beliefs;

  • worship and fellowship that is informal and accepting;

  • service to our community and the world on outreach and social justice.


Chapel by the Sea is Clearwater Beach’s Community Church.

You’re always welcome here!

We are a community comprised of year-round residents, regular part-year residents, visitors from the neighborhood, and beach tourists. Youth and children’s programming is year-round, as are adult educational opportunities. Inspirational sermons and incredible music highlight Sunday worship services.

We’re serious about missions and outreach.

We encourage each of our members to find a place of service, using their gifts and talents. Partnering with several local non-profits, we care for individuals and families facing homelessness and inadequate housing, domestic violence, food insecurity, and medical issues. We also engage in international projects related to hunger and disaster relief. Chapel folks drive, walk, and paint. We donate food and clothes, time and blood. We deliver meals; we pick up food; we cook; we serve; we organize events; we participate, we eat, we laugh, we have fun.

Chapel by the Sea partners with a network of churches called the International Council of Community Churches, the first denomination to embrace racial integration in the 1950’s. Our fellowship continues to embrace the rich diversity of churches within the ICCC. Through our participation in the ICCC, we participate in the National Council of Churches and support Church World Service.
