who we are

We are a multi-generational non-denominational church located in the heart of Virginia Beach.  Anchor Church was planted in 2012 by Kris & Joanne Hassanpour, with the desire to plant churches and see individuals, families, and communities changed by the power of the Gospel.

Join us on Sunday

We invite you to join us for our 10am service on Sundays at our temporary location of the Theater at Catholic High School. Due to COVID-19, we are unable to meet at our normal location of the Sandler Center in Town Center.

Our Sunday worship gatherings involve music, Scripture reading, teaching, prayer, and weekly communion. A typical Sunday gathering lasts about an hour and fifteen minutes. Come relaxed! No need to worry about what to wear. You'll experience everything from tee shirts and flip flops to business casual attire. As soon as you walk into the building, you will be welcomed by our friendly team and directed to the auditorium.

Want to attend from home? Watch our livestream at 10am every Sunday.
