Sundays are just one important part of the life of Ashford Vineyard. It’s a chance for us to connect with God and each other. 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.
We tend to start with a time of worship (singing some songs to God and about God) and opportunities to share stories about how God is restoring lives across Ashford. Then someone else will come and teach something from the bible usually around a series or theme, 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.
Join us in the auditorium or online every Sunday at 9.30am.
In the Room and live Streamed on a Sunday!
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!
Our Sunday service each week starts at: 9.30am (Online and in the room). We would suggest getting there ten minutes early for the service, so it gives you enough time to sanitise your hands, scan your QR code, find your seat, and make yourself comfortable.
We meet in The Warehouse: Cobbs Wood Industrial Estate, Brunswick Road, TN23 1EH. Just look for our big green Ashford Vineyard sign – and we always have our car parking team out and about in high-vis on a Sunday to welcome you and help you find your way!
When you arrive, our car park team are ready to show you where to park, so just look for the people in high-vis and they will direct you. We have very limited parking outside our building, so they will show you the best places, but if you need to park close by, we have a few spaces saved in case you can’t walk too far! (Please don’t hesitate to ask our car parking team if you have any problems.)
We have no dress code. Most people who come are dressed really casually – jeans and T-shirts are absolutely acceptable. But you’re more than welcome to wear your ‘Sunday best’ too! Whatever you are most comfortable in is what you should wear.
When you arrive at the Warehouse which is COVID secure, you’ll be welcomed by our welcome team. If you’ve never been before, they will happily show you into the auditorium and point out anything you need to know. We gather in the auditorium for some worship, followed by teaching from one of our leaders. The service should last just over an hour.
During life before COVID, every fortnight, one of the leaders at Ashford Vineyard opened their home up for lunch after the morning services and invited any newcomers round for a bite to eat! It gave us a chance to meet you and gave you a chance to find out a little more about who we are, how this church came about, and how you can get plugged-in to the life of Ashford Vineyard. We would love to resume this when we are able to, but for now, we have technology!!
If you have questions about life that you would love to explore, or have an interest in faith and would like to chat more about that, you are welcome to join us for Alpha. This is a group that meets online, at different days/times. Get in touch with us HERE. We would love to journey through your questions together with you.
AVKids is a place where kids are welcome to come as they are, and explore all that Jesus has to offer them. We believe that kids have full access to the Holy Spirit, and we are expectant that he will show up on a Sunday morning, or whenever we gather together.
At AVKids we play, explore the bible, and worship Jesus as HE is threaded throughout our time together!
Our AVKids groups meet on a Sunday morning at the Warehouse at 9:30am. There is also a regular bible journalling group, and a Creators club -where families come together and explore the bible using Lego.
If you would like anymore information just drop Chrissie an email on AVKids@ashfordvineyard.org
AV Youth is an invitational space where our young people get to explore Jesus in a 21st century way with their peers. Our doors are open for any child in year 6 to year 13 on a Sunday morning between 9:00 and 10:30.
One of Ashford Vineyard’s visions that directly relates to our young people is ‘Improving aspirations and opportunities for children and young people’, and this is exactly what we aim to do in AV Youth. Our young people of Ashford are invited into a community where they can build healthy relationships, grow in self-confidence, discover how they can be themselves when navigating this life as a young person, and more importantly get to know more about Jesus, and HIS purposes for their lives.
If you would like more information on all things AV youth, then please drop Kaylee an email on: firstname.lastname@example.org, we would love to hear from you!
