A VERY WARM WELCOME!
Whether you are looking for a church to call home, or just exploring the Christian faith, you are very welcome at North Birmingham Vineyard.
If you are coming to a Sunday service for the first time we want to make your visit as enjoyable as possible by letting you know exactly what’s involved.
What time do services start?
Sunday morning services start at 10:30 with Fair Trade Coffee & Teas with pastries & fresh fruit served from 10:00! Our duplicate Sunday evening service starts at 18:00 with refreshments served from 17:30! The message & preacher are the same for both 10:30 & 18:00 services but the worship teams are different. This enables more people to get involved and creates more space to welcome visitors!
What should i expect?
You'll receive a warm welcome from our Host Team with directions to our lounge area where we hope you'll enjoy a drink & a snack from 10:00 or 17:30 onward before our worship celebration starts at 10:30 or 18:00. The whole Church family worships together for the first half hour or so before we have a short moment for updates & take an offering which is primarily for church members to help contribute towards running costs. Children & young people then go our for their own fun-packed sessions with our fab Children’s & Youth Teams!
Our worship songs are projected onto screens by the worship band as well as a TV monitor in our lounge area. Feel free to sing along or reflect on the words...we hope they help you in your journey towards connection with God. We follow short teaching themes with our Sunday talks that are designed to assist people to grow in their understanding of God and how to make their faith relevant to everyday life.
Our celebrations finish at around 12:00 or 19:30 and regularly include an opportunity for people to receive prayer ministry. Refreshments are served after the service and provide a valuable opportunity to meet some of our team and to find out more about what's going here at the Vineyard.
What should I wear and do you have any events for newcomers?
Most people who come dress casually!
We regularly host welcome events for anyone new to the church. This is a chance to meet the Leaders, hear about our vision and values plus ask questions!
