As a church, we really love and value children and young people.
There’s lots going on in Plymouth Vineyard for young people and if you are a young person thinking about coming along, then you would be so welcome to join us…. All of what we do with young people is fun, chaotic and designed specifically for you!!
We don’t “teach about Christianity”, but try to give young people the space to be church together. We try to create a space where they can encounter Jesus for themselves, in ways that are age-appropriate and relevant to them. We also play lots of silly games and make time to laugh together so young people who come enjoy themselves, having fun within a church group they feel really comfortable and at home with.
What to expect on Sunday Mornings:
On a typical Sunday morning, about 30 minutes (after the worship has finished) into the main service, the youth gather at the back of the hall where one or two of the youth team will meet them and walk with them to the youth room. The Sunday morning youth session ends at 12:15pm.
On the fourth Sunday of each month we run an ‘Apprentice morning’ where the young people have an opportunity to serve in an area of church for the morning. There will be no Youth gathering on this morning and young people remain in the care of their parents/guardians.
Rockets & Dynamite
For primary school children we meet throughout the Sunday service, sometimes in one group, sometimes in two (Rockets & Dynamite). We do a mixture of praise, prayer, craft and games depending on the week, but most of all we have FUN!
For pre-schoolers of any age, we go out to our room just before the service starts and learn about God, sings songs, play and create (or if we’re too young we just have lots of cuddles!).
