If you are thinking about coming along on a Sunday, we hope that this information will help to give you a feel of what to expect when you arrive.
The morning service starts at 10.30am and the evening service at 7.30pm. There are free refreshments served for half an hour before the services, so feel free to come a little earlier and grab a coffee and a doughnut!
Both services start with 30 minutes of contemporary worship, which is followed by a short welcome and a 5 minute break. There is then a talk based around both the bible and our experiences of following Jesus, that is practical and relevant to everyday life. After the talk, there is an opportunity for prayer for anyone that would like it.
During the morning service, there are separate activities for children aged 0 – 11 held in the main Warehouse building. Children can be signed into Vineyard Kids from 10.15am onwards. With over 250 children in Vineyard Kids there are a few different age groups. So if it's your first visit then do go along to the Vineyard Kids desk and they will point you in the right direction.
There are also Youth services that take place at the same time as the main services. Beyond (11-14’s) meet from 10.15am and Cohesion (15-18’s) from 7pm. Both of the Youth services meet in Trent Youth Centre just behind the main building. If you are not sure where to go, do ask a member of the welcome team.
After the service, refreshments are served and there is time to mill around and meet others. If it's your first visit we would love to meet you! At the back of the main auditorium you will see a Newcomer’s area with a friendly team waiting to meet you and have a chat over a coffee.
At the end of the evening service from 9.15-10.30pm, the bar opens and the Afterhours events begin. You can grab a seat in the bar area, get yourself a drink and enjoy the Afterhours atmosphere as you get to know others. The Afterhours team put on a range of entertainment including live acoustic music and a pub quiz, as well as a variety of drinks and snacks. It’s really laid back and a lot of fun!
We aim to make the Sunday services accessible and inclusive to everyone, including those with additional needs. The building is easily accessible and we have a number of disabled car parking spaces. The service is fully signed using British Sign Language from the right hand side of the stage in the morning on the third Sunday of the month, and the evening services of the second and fourth Sunday each month.
We hope that you enjoy coming along and feel at home here. If you have any questions and we can help you in any way, then please get in touch with Jude Bagguley.
10:30 am - 12:00 noon
7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Refreshments are served before and after the services.
Four times a year, we have a special evening service where a number of people publically demonstrate that they are following Jesus by getting baptised. Find out more about getting Baptised.
