About this Church

Great Bridge Community Church is located in Great Bridge, which is a suburban community within Chesapeake, Virginia. We are about twenty five-minutes from the beachfront in Virginia Beach. We are also one hour south of Williamsburg and one hour north of the Outer Banks of North Carolina. We are a very small church. The attendance of our typical Sunday service since the COVID pandemic is in the high 20s to low 30s. There are presently two part-time pastors, one in his late 60’s (Teaching and Administrative Pastor) and the other in his early 70s (Finance and Christian Education Pastor).
