The Del Monte Forest and its beaches are places of sacred beauty. Our chapel and garden, in the heart of the Forest, exemplify that beckoning beauty. Come to meditate on weekdays, and worship in community on Sundays.  

Find us at the entrance to Stevenson School's campus, in Pebble Beach. We're not easy to find, it takes some persistence—just like finding God.

You are welcome anytime.


Church in the Forest has been a compelling presence on the Monterey Peninsula since 1987. Generous members and friends sustain the church through their gifts that are expressions of their faith in God and in the mission of the church. Worship, bible study, music, fellowship, pastoral care and community outreach are made possible with financial gifts to the church.
