Plan a Visit

Service times, directions, and what to expect upon your first visit

Getting to know each other

We know meeting someone for the first time can be intimidating, and going to a new church for the first time can be nerve-racking. We want to help make your first experience at Parkside a great one!  

We like to say there's "no perfect people allowed." This means we bring our messy, imperfect lives to church each week expecting God to show up as we pursue knowing Him together. Life's too short for religious pretense. We're more interested in reaching North County, the West, and the world one child and family at a time.

Whether you are brand new to this God / Church / Jesus thing or you have been following Him for a long time, Parkside is a great place to make friends and grow in your faith. Learn more about Parkside Church.

What can I expect?


In total, a Parkside service is about 70 minutes in length. Services begin with the Parkside band leading the church in music - song lyrics are projected onto the screens so you can sing along and/or engage with worship however you feel most comfortable. After the music portion of service is complete, one of our pastors will come out to share an encouraging and hope-filled message about Jesus.

What's the culture like at PARKSIDE?

Sunday's at Parkside are exciting, casual, and relaxed. Come as you are and expect to feel welcomed as our guest. We've got a laid back atmosphere where you can wear t-shirts, shorts, flip flops, or whatever you feel comfortable in!

What about my kids?

At Parkside Kids, we believe that kids should have a blast at church every single week and we make this a priority. The other thing we make a priority is your children’s safety. Because of that, we have a detailed check-in process for our Parkside Kids program the first time that you visit. You’ll want to leave yourself an extra ten minutes to get signed in for the Parkside Kids experience. Parkside Kids is offered at every service for kids ages infant through Grade 5.

What about youth?

Parkside Youth is for students 6th-12th grade. We are passionate about training up and equipping the next generation to change the world. Parkside youth meets every Sunday during the 9:15am service at 1550 Temple Heights Dr in Oceanside and every Tuesday night at 6:30pm-8pm at 1120 Highland Drive in Vista.

We also have retreats and mission trips all aimed at empowering students to grow in their faith.
