No service on Sunday 24th April. Back on 1st May at 10:30am.
COME AS YOU ARE
Welcome - We understand that coming along to a new place for the first time can be a daunting prospect. At Bangor Vineyard we do everything that we can to make your experience with us as enjoyable as possible.
We meet in the SPACE building which is owned by South East Regional College (SERC). It is on the Castle Park Road opposite the main SERC building.
Our Sunday service begins at 10:30am.
There is a car park beside the SPACE building (in front of Bangor Academy). There are also some spaces at the side of the road if the main car park is full.
Most people who come along are dressed in a casual manner. However if you would like to wear your new suit or dress you are totally welcome! Please feel free to wear whatever you feel comfortable in.
When you arrive you will be welcomed by one of our welcome team who will direct you upstairs to the main theatre which is on the 1st floor.
The seats will be well spaced out to ensure social distancing is implemented. Currently we are wearing our face coverings when entering and exiting the building, as well as when we move around the building. We also wear our face covering whilst singing. We would then encourage you to keep your face covering on.
Our morning service launches with a time of celebration and passionate sung worship. This normally lasts 15-20 minutes and will be directed from the front. All the words are on the screen so if you want to, you can sing along. We encourage you to relax and engage at your own pace, even if that means not singing at all. We usually stand to worship but you are free to sit down at any point during this time.
Normally after worship we communicate some details about upcoming events then we have a talk which lasts approx. 30 mins, and is challenging, biblical and applicable to all or our lives. At the end of the talk, the worship team will normally lead us in another song of worship as we reflect on what we have heard and respond. We normally conclude this part of the morning by 11:45.
If you signed your children into the kids groups, we ask that you collect them promptly afterwards. We then invite you all to join us for tea and coffee afterwards. There is a coffee area in the atrium which is outside the theatre.
The building is very modern and has good disability access throughout. We meet on the first floor and there is lift available if required. Our welcome team will be more than happy to direct you. There is also a disabled toilet available.
We have all ages together in the main theatre for the first 20 minutes. We have two kid's room sthat will open up after the time of worship. These rooms are for children who are in Pre-pre-school to P2 or P3 - P7.
Both of these rooms are upstairs on the second floor and, if you are visiting for the first time, our welcome team would be more than happy to show you where you will take your children when you first arrive before the service. Otherwise just follow the crowd!
We will also have a crèche space in the atrium just outside the theatre which parents are welcome to take their babies and tots to themselves. This is in the atrium (beside the tea and coffee area). Of course, you are more than welcome to stay in the main theatre with your children with you if you prefer.
