What we do - church life

 
Sundays: We meet at Thorpe St Andrew High School, Laundry Lane, Norwich, every Sunday at 10.30am, for worship, teaching, and prayer. We include communion on the 2nd Sunday of each month. In true Vineyard style, coffee and doughnuts are always available at the end of the meeting.

Children's work: The children and young people have their own activities on a Sunday morning, including Tribe (Y7+), Kidz Klub (5+) and Frogs (5's and under).

Church prayer meeting:  Once a month one of the homegroups hosts a prayer meeting for the church.
Vineyard Care:  We have a Foodstore and take part in a Souprun, as part of our programme of social outreach with the homeless, poor and disadvantaged of our city. We encourage donations of food which is distributed through health centres, social services and other caring agencies. 

'the place'  is a centre in the heart of the community for the community. Run by Norwich Vineyard Church, everyone is welcome. Find out more here. Please contact the church office on 01603 434433 for more details or specific events and opening hours .

You can find "the place" at 61 Spinney Road, Thorpe St Andrew, Norwich, NR7 0PL.

Home and life groups, fun and sport! The church meets in small groups, mostly of a weekday evening, in people's homes. To find out if there is a small group near you, contact the office.

We also regularly run the Alpha course for people enquiring into the christian faith, and the Marriage course; a practical course for couples.


As a church we love to meet each other in relaxed, social activities, often involving food and fun. We also have football teams for adults and children, and dance classes for all ages and abilities. For the more sedate, the occasional angling tournament. At our community drop-in centre, 'the place', we run regular craft sessions and exhibitions.

Totstop is the name of the carers and toddlers group that happens at the Dussindale centre, Thorpe, on Tuesday mornings during school terms from 9.45am. For more details please contact the office.
 

Community events Over the past three years we have worked with Thorpe Town Council, participating in the St George's Day celebrations, Christmas lights switch-on, and other local events. We have also have regular events such as ceilidhs, hogroasts, comedy nights, family fun days, and barbecues.

Schools work Geoff heads up a chaplaincy team at Thorpe St Andrew School, which includes other local church leaders and church members. He also does assemblies each term in the school and in most local primary schools.
