WELCOME TO URBAN - 29 April at Ruru St
We’re running a ‘Welcome to Urban’ night on Sunday 29th April, straight after our 5pm service and we’d love you to come along. This is a one-off gathering for people who are new to Urban, hosted by Lloyd and Vicki Rankin who will share the vision and story of Urban Vineyard. Come and meet some members of our team - the atmosphere will be relaxed, the meeting will be short, questions can be asked, and a light meal will be served!

BAPTISM
If you haven’t been baptised and you would like to (while there’s still some heat in the sun!), talk to Emma Crawley to find out more: 021 0248 2508 / emma@vineyard.org.nz

ALPHA - Starting soon at Ruru St
Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation.

KOTAHITANGA - 3-5 May at Beach Church, Raumati Beach
We’d love you to join with our Vineyard Churches at Beach Church for Kotahitanga Hui - an exploration of what a bicultural journey might look like.

CHILDREN & YOUTH
A parents & babies room is available during the Sunday meetings with audio link - and refreshments available. A toddlers space is available in the cafe.
Youth Group is every Thursday at 7-9pm for high school youth (Years 9-13). Contact Barry Burton or office@urbanvineyard.church.

URBAN@5 GROUPS
Our groups are a vital part of who we are what what we do as a church. Some are for those already part of Urban and some are for those not yet in church. There are a number of groups and opportunities to connect during the week with our Urban groups, most held here at Ruru Street.
Mondays, 6.00-7.00pm: Prayer for Urban and our City. Every Monday from 6-7 in the auditorium. Prayer and worship focussed on our city.
Wednesdays, 11.00am-1.00pm: Community Lunch, with Will Durbin. This is such a great community event for anyone to be part of. You are welcome to meet and eat together.
Wednesdays, 7.30-9.00pm: Emma Crawley’s Group. Exploring how to help busy people enjoy God working from the Sunday talks and our book "God in My Everything".
Thursdays, 7.00-9.00pm: Urban Youth, with Barry Burton. For Year 9-13s. An awesome evening for your teens.
Friday mornings: A Group for Women, with Leanne Bycroft. Starting shortly - watch this space for more details.
G3s: G3s are groups of 3-4 people who meet for an hour a week to work through some questions focused on spiritual growth, or focus on a topical study/book. There are a number of G3s happening already, so another option is to find 2-3 people and start a new one. If you can't make it to an Urban@5 group a G3 is a brilliant option.
For further details on joining a group, contact Emma Crawley on 021 024 82508 or emma@vineyard.org.nz

 

On Sundays at 10am we meet at the St Paul's College Hall in Ponsonby - entrance via Moira St, Ponsonby. Parking is available onsite - drive into St Pauls College via the entrance at the end of Moira St, follow the driveway around the hall and park down on the courts.
