Our morning services are friendly and informal, starting at 10.30am with a short scripture and a prayer, followed by about 25-30 minutes of contemporary worship. We highly value having a real encounter with God through intimate worship, so this is a really precious time to draw near to God.
Following the break, there will be a teaching from the Bible that will challenge us to grow in our faith and understanding, to develop greater intimacy with God and to take hold of our own sense of calling and purpose within God’s kingdom.
After worship we break for 10 minutes for a time of fellowship, with lots of excellent coffee, tea, an assortment of cakes and plenty of people tp talk to. After the break, the children go to their respective groups and there will be a short period of announcements.
The service will draw to a close with a time of ministry where people will be invited to receive prayer. This is an opportunity to respond to the message, or to receive prayer for any specific needs you may have. After the service there is plenty of time to chat to someone or connect with the welcome team at the information point.
As the adults break for tea and coffee, we take the opportunity to lead the children to their respective Young Vineyard Groups, where they will remain until the ministry time finishes.
