Our Sunday Morning Service has a relaxed and contemporary style which we’re sure you’ll enjoy. Our Sunday celebrations are designed to help you worship God freely, and to understand and apply the truth of the Bible to your life. Refreshments are served before the service, and this is a great time to meet new friend, so feel free to come a little early and enjoy a coffee and pastry. After the service there’s always an opportunity to respond by praying for any needs people may have.
We want your whole family to enjoy church, so there’s a full Kids and Youth program running every Sunday Morning, with heaps of creative fun happening each week which we’re sure your children and teens will love. We also have a crèche for babies and toddlers.
Our Evening Service has a more laid back and fluid feel, with most of our time together spent in worship and prayer. We want to create a space where people can experience and enjoy the presence of God. After the service, our Joy Cafe opens, serving delicious home-baked goodies and hot drinks. The evening service takes place on the third Sunday of every month.
We believe that life was meant to be lived in circles not rows, so we encourage everyone to be part of a Life Group. These are weekly groups of people that gather in homes around town throughout the week, and are a great place to find a sense of family. Every group is different, so feel free to check out a few until you find your fit, but most spend time eating, praying, worshipping and studying the bible.
We are committed to reaching out to those on the margins of society by demonstrating God’s love in practical and tangible ways. We hope to bless those in need through acts of kindness, service and compassion.
Most of us can go to our kitchen fridge and cupboards and find food to feed our families. But what if the cupboards are bare, the fridge is empty, and the children are sent to bed hungry? The Bournemouth Foodbank was started in 2007 to help address this problem. Through contact with health visitors, doctor surgeries, and other community workers, those who are without food can receive a food voucher and exchange it for emergency food parcels from one of our distribution points around Bournemouth. Alongside the food, further help and advice is given to try and alleviate the reasons why the recipients have needed the services of the Food Bank.
Release responds to the needs of people in addiction on the streets of Bournemouth. Our aim is to build healthy, caring relationships with hurting and broken people, whether they are living a lifestyle trapped in addiction and homelessness, struggling with loneliness and depression, working in street prostitution or those who have simply lost their way and hope in life.
We seek to imitate Jesus, supporting people as individuals, showing them their full potential and worth in Him, regardless of their life’s journey. We listen, offer prayer, and help signpost people into local services and agencies. Our vision is to see hope restored in people’s lives, chains loosened and recovery begin.
Worship is our highest priority in the Vineyard. God is eager to be known and experienced by us, and is looking to draw us into intimate relationship with Himself. The primary place this relationship is nurtured and developed is in the act of worship. This is where we experience God’s presence and where His power transforms us.
Whenever we meet, we worship – at our Sunday services, in our midweek Life Groups, when we gather to pray, when we’re hanging out at the beach.
