Vineyard kids is a fun and exciting place for the kids and the team, our children’s team run kids groups on a Sunday each week and also arrange Great Big God parties throughout the year. We aim to lovingly disciple the kids and pray that they would grow in their walk with Jesus. If you are looking for a church and have children, we would love for you to join us. On Sundays the children join us for worship and then sign in for groups before the talk.
We are passionate about seeing our children and young people enjoy being a part of a growing church family. They are not only the church of the future BUT are also the church of today.
Every Sunday we have youth and children’s groups available from age 6 months to 16+. Each group is tailored for different ages to enable the children and young people to make friends, learn about Jesus and have fun.
BUDS & SHOOTS – 6 months to Foundation 1
If you have a baby under 6 months they are welcome to stay in the service with you. Buds and Shoots is suitable for babies from 6 months old up to pre-school age children. Whether your child is crawling, toddling or running around these sessions will teach the simple truths about God. Through play, stories, crafts, songs, and prayers we will learn about what it means to be a friend of God and how we can talk and listen to Him.
VINE – Reception to Year 5
Vine is our children’s group from Reception to Year 5. We learn about being part of God’s family through interactive bible stories, games and related craft activities. Vine kids like to ask the big questions and some little ones in our relaxed, friendly sessions. We love getting to know the children and always make time to pray with them.
YARD – Year 6 to Year 9
Our mission is to see Jesus impact the lives of our young people. We have a passion for for our young people to grow and develop in their own individual walk with Jesus and to have a desire to know Him more. To build and encourage them to worship God, to study their Bible, to pray and to see things happen; and to have a heart for the community in which we live.
This is a place where they can hang out, play games, learn more about Jesus and pray for one another; and of course sweets are always involved!
Visiting youth or new young people to the church are very welcome.
We also have various events running throughout the year, such as movie nights, ice skating and trampolining at Gravity.
YOUTH – Year 10+
This group is for school years 10+ and we’re all about equipping young people to live in the reality of the Kingdom of God. We are passionate about seeing young people worshipping God with their lives and showing love and compassion towards others. We believe that the best way to do this is through genuine relationships, spending time together and learning about Jesus. Our Sunday morning sessions are a mixture of games, discussion and bible topics and ministry. Youth meets every three out of 4 Sundays, for the fourth week they join us in the service.
We also have a Youth Group which meets on the second and fourth Sunday evening at the Church Centre from 7- 9pm where the emphasis is on fun, food and fellowship and growing together in their relationship with Jesus. There are also socials planned throughout the year where they can hang out together and bring their friends.
