Our vision is to raise children who are:
Hungry for God - recognising their need for Him
We long for our children to be developing a faith in God that is real and personal, so we want to encourage an appetite in the children to know God for themselves.
Joining in His work - coz God's on the move!
We want our the children to trust and recognize that God is on the move, that he has a desire to see lives transformed and made whole, and that they can help to make that happen.
Overflowing with Love - impacting the world for good
We are passionate that our children feel that they are completely loved and special to God; and want to see God’s love spilling out of them and impacting those they meet and spend time with.
Our Kids Groups are divided into carefully chosen age groups, so they can have the best experience possible.
Sparklers: Age 0-2
Bright Sparks: Age 3-4 (Pre school age)

Come and experience the fun of a life following Jesus, every Sunday Morning...
Sunday Morning Groups
Reception and Key Stage 1
We want Live Wires to be the highlight of the week for children in reception and Key Stage 1!
This is where they can make friends, sing songs (helped by our kids worship band), hear bible stories, build towers, draw, run, dance, play and pray.
There is always a craft activity and also a bouncy castle.
As our children are learning more about the world we love to hear and answer their questions and help them explore the adventure that is a life of following Jesus
Why not ask one of the 'Live Wires' to tell you about Archie (our blue fluffy parrot puppet), or the story sack, the prayer cube and their story mats.
Key Stage 2
At Coventry Vineyard we are passionate about encouraging a culture of worship in our children and young people as well as in the grown-ups! We have a fantastic team of young worship leaders who are committed to leading a time of sung worship with The Grid children. We believe that by making the songs age-relevant, and by coming together in a less formal environment, the children are more inclined to engage with God. We are excited about the Kids Worship Bands who regularly play in our 'All-age' gatherings and are writing their own songs too.
At Coventry Vineyard child safety is of the greatest importance at all times, and we actively review our groups, meetings and policies. You can download and view our Child Protection policy below:
