Bishops Stortford Vineyard Church
Welcome to the Bishop's Stortford Vineyard website. We are a Christian church affiliated to Vineyard Churches UK.
We meet at 10am at Bishop's Stortford College, Hadham Road, Bishop’s Stortford, CM23 2QY, in the Ferguson building to the right of the Memorial Chapel. We have 30 minutes of chatting, pastries and coffee, and the service and Children's Ministry start at 10:30am. We worship together, often have communion and then someone brings a talk from the bible, finishing at 11.30am.
Please have a look around the website and contact us if you have any questions.
We value children and want church to be an amazing experience for them.
We run a Crèche and Children’s Church and our vision is that children have fun, learn about Jesus and experience God’s love themselves. We include worship, bible stories, games, snacks and prayer times as part of our children’s ministry. Brenda Harrap is our children’s pastor and she serves the Children’s Church with a dedicated team.
Outside of Sunday mornings, we have parties and celebrations throughout the year, which involve food, craft, games and bouncy castles.
BSV also run a toddler group, Town Toddlers, with the Methodist church: Meeting Friday's 9:45am at the Methodist church hall.
Town Toddlers is a group for parents or carers to bring babies and toddlers. It is a friendly and welcoming group, where a cup of tea awaits your arrival. There are toys, crafts, a snack time and singing.
It it is run by a group of ladies from BSV church and the Methodist church.
Town Toddlers meets Fridays from 9:45am-11am at the Methodist Church hall.
