Sundays are an important part of the life of Ashford Vineyard. Not particularly because it’s a Sunday, but because it’s a chance for people to get together and spend time enjoying God together. We can see in the Bible that there are times when God meets with people on their own and in small groups, but there are also times when God loves to see a load of his people together in one place, worshipping Him, enjoying Him and getting fired up to go and serve a community that needs loving.
People arrive from 9:45 to grab a tea or coffee and hang out before we start at 10:15. We then have a time of worship and opportunities to share stories about how God is restoring lives across Ashford. Then someone else will come and teach something from the Bible (our plumb line) and we wrap up with a chance for people to respond in some way to God and often get prayer for something that they may be struggling with. We aim to be finished by 11.30.
Well, that’s the outline. All sorts of people come along. People who would consider themselves followers of Jesus and people who would say they’re only asking questions and wondering. You don’t need to believe to belong!
Kids welcome? Absolutely. AV Kids runs alongside what we do in our main service, and is a great way for kids to get to know Jesus in fun and creative ways! Just visit our AV Kids page to find out more.
If your child is under 2 years old and getting restless, or you want a more private area to feed your baby, there is a créche area available in the Mezzanine, with live feed from the service so you don’t miss out. We love having children with us on Sundays and just want them and you to be comfortable so feel free to ask if there is anything else you need.
