As they go through the beautiful transition from children to adults, we want to walk alongside our young people during this significant time so we can help them ‘taste and see that the Lord is good’ and grow spiritually.
We do this through worship, fun and games, praying in the power of the Holy Spirit, socials, reaching out to the world around us, and caring for and serving one another. Our purpose is for us all, the youth and the team, to increasingly become Worshippers of God and to work alongside Him in his plan to Rescue People.
We’ve worked hard since lockdown began in March to keep doing this and, although ever-evolving, here’s how we are making things happen at the moment:
These give us an opportunity get real with each other and with God. We use these to build broader and deeper friendships, encounter God together, work on our character and, as always, have some fun!
We’re currently meeting virtually fortnightly in groups of around four people.
We’re very serious about having lots of fun together. We will be planning in as many socials as current Covid guidelines allow.
We’re all learning to share our life with Jesus to our friends. We also sponsor a child in Watoto, Uganda as a youth group. This includes writing to him, praying for him and raising his annual sponsorship money through fundraising activities.
We link with other local youth groups in Bristol and the South West region through the Vineyard movement. We also take part in the Vineyard Churches UK initiative called DTI: Dreaming the Impossible. This is both an annual national gathering event and also various more local events run by DTI for all Christian streams.

Pre-Covid we were also meeting on Saturdays and Sundays and hope to resume this as soon as we can.
These are times for connection and being part of something bigger than an individual. We inspire deeper relationships with others and with God by conversation, activities, worship, prayer and LOTS of fun.
We’d meet three out of four weeks, usually at the Old Library on Muller Road.
On Sundays mornings we meet with the rest of the Bristol Vineyard church community. We engage with the whole community and worship, learn and serve together. We usually worship in the main church gathering and then either break out for our own teaching and ministry or stay with the main session. We also serve regularly on teams. Every two weeks, we’d meet in our Small Groups.
As we’re under lockdown restrictions, we’re not presently meeting on Sundays.
We’re committed to safeguarding and the welfare of all our young people. If you’d like to see a copy of our safeguarding policy, please contact the church office at firstname.lastname@example.org
