What does a typical Sunday morning look like at vineyardkids?

We always look forward to meeting new faces and hope your child feels at home amongst us.

If you are new to the church come to the vineyardkids area before the service. Someone will be there to greet you, answer your questions and help sign in your child. We use a secure computer registration system, allowing us to call you out of the service if needed. Plus, every member of the vineyardkids team is DBS checked for your peace of mind.

SUNDAYS | 9.30am & 11.30am

We're passionate about providing spaces that are welcoming, engaging, and allow even our babies to experience something of God.

We believe that our children are as much part of God’s Kingdom as are their Mums and Dads. But we appreciate that sometimes little children just need a space where they can play, make friends and lots of noise! We are so blessed to have separate children's rooms for our 5’s and under. Our Duck room (ages 0-1) offers an video feed that allows parents to sit comfortably and not miss out on the service. We have a parents lounge in the kids area for watching the service if kids are unsettled. Rooms are brightly furnished, filled with age appropriate toys, arts, crafts, and essentials, providing a nurturing and exciting environment for your child to enjoy. We also want to care for those with additional needs, so we now have a sensory room.

During their time, children can play, make friends and learn about Jesus with a curriculum designed to best meet their needs and learning style. This amazing ministry is only possible due to our wonderful team of skilled volunteers who work hard to make your child’s first experience of church a positive one. Not just made up of parents, but also servant hearted people in the family of God who want to serve and make kids church fun. Church should be fun! A friendly and accepting place for our children where they can grow in a caring, happy and relaxed environment.

FLAMINGO (ages 1-2)
PARROT (ages 2-3)
 ELEPHANT (Ages 3-4)
GIRAFFE (ages 4-5)

Please note! The 9.30am service is particularly popular so at this point in time we can't guarantee every child a place. 
Arrive early to register your child's place, or come for the 11.30am service instead. During the 11.30am service the Duck and Flamingo rooms are combined (Flamingo room) as is Elephant and Giraffe (Giraffe room).

ventureland

SUNDAYS | 9.30am & 11.30am

ventureland is an exciting programme for children in years 1-5 (aged 6-10)

Their hour and a half is filled with lively worship, bible drama presentations, small group times and fun activities. Once a month (2nd Sunday) the children join everyone else for worship and communion in the auditorium. We highly recommend ventureland for every child so that they have the best possible experience of church; where learning about God and their relationship with him is so much fun that they never want to miss a Sunday! All our volunteers and leaders (all DBS checked) genuinely love this ministry and regard it as a privilege to be involved with raising a whole new generation of followers of Jesus.

Sundays | 9.30am & 11.30am

ages 11-13 (school years 6 and 7)

The purpose of Fuse is to enable kids to engage with God in new and exciting ways. We are passionate about this age group knowing Jesus and being light and salt to their community. We invest in them, to help them be all that Jesus has called them to be.

Fuse worships with the church in the main auditorium, and then afterwards meets in a smaller room. We understand that the transition between school years 6 and 7 is a hard time for many young people. And Fuse offers stability when so much is changing around them. This two years also helps them transition from kids ministry into the youth.

To support the smooth and safe operation of vineyardvillage, we would appreciate your co-operation with these guidelines:

 

  • Please ensure children are registered before each service starts.
  • Only parents, guardians and authorised adults may collect children.
  • If you're new, please make sure the kids teams are aware of any dietary requirements/allergies/medication.
  • To prevent the spread of illness, and to keep all children healthy, please avoid bringing your child when they are poorly.
