We want to see souls ignited with passion, living life to the full, going after God's purpose and looking to trust and depend on God. We want to remind this generation that there is freedom through Jesus.
We're passionate about seeing our youth enjoy their lives and develop healthy relationships with one another and the world. Our young people are a significant part of the Vineyard. We especially thank God for the amazing things He’s doing in and among our growing youth ministry - we now have over 120 youth on our books! We believe the youth aren't tomorrow's leaders - they're today's. With young people facing so many challenges in our contemporary world, it’s essential for us to provide a place where they can ‘do life’ together.
Christ has set us free to live a free life. So take your stand!
On a Sunday we love that we can join the whole church in worship, so we'll head into the main auditorium (we usually all sit on the right side). Afterwards we head out for our own programs for different age groups:
11-12 (School Years 6-7) FUSE / NANO meet in room 108
12-14 (School Years 8-9) meet in room 201
15-18 (School Years 10-13) meet in room 202
Since my youth, God, you have taught me,
and to this day I declare your marvelous deeds. Psalm 71v17
We'll make every effort to help you find your way here and feel at home.
We know it's not easy going anywhere for the first time. So, when you arrive at church, look for any of our youth team in red t-shirts - they'll welcome you, answer any questions you might have, and get you headed in the right direction.
'Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God – this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is – his good, pleasing and perfect will.' Romans 12 v 1&2
During the week we run a Connect Group for Youth
Wednesdays (school years 11-13) - we meets the 1st, 3rd and 5th (when there is one!) Wednesdays of each month 7.15-9.30pm at Jon and Emma Day's home in St Albans. The evening involves plenty of social time, a game, some Bible study and prayer.
Laser Quasar, cinema trips, games nights, karaoke, ice skating, and Come Dine With Me competitions are just some of the Friday nights activities we run at Youth. Meet us from 8-10pm for energetic and fun evenings, perfect for you to meet others or bring your friends along to.
We have an uber fun & creative Youth Team. If you're interested in getting involved in whatever capacity then let us know.
