We see children as our legacy and that word sums up exactly what we want to do with the kids we work with – leave a legacy.
You see, we reckon that when Jesus said (Matthew 19:4) that the kingdom of Heaven belongs to “such as these”, referring to small children, that he meant it.
And when he tells his disciples in Matthew 18:5 that if whoever “welcomes a little child like this is welcoming me”, his message wasn’t hidden, but simple and to the point. He was (and still is) saying that children are incredibly important to him and to his kingdom.
Sunday Kids’ Environments
We have stimulating and relevant environments for all kids aged 1-11 during our morning services. These run throughout each service, and we invite you to sign your kids in before the service begins (sign in is open from 9.15 - 9.45am, and 11.15 - 11.45am).
On your first morning with us, our Kids Newcomers team in the foyer (in yellow t-shirts) would love to register you and show you to the relevant kids environments. You can also pre-register your child/ren online, saving you some time on Sunday morning! Just click ‘Pre-Register’ below.

This is a new environment, which we’re so excited about. Parents will stay with their baby whilst little ones enjoy stimulating play as well as space to move and crawl. There will be a room host for this environment who will make sure you have everything you and your baby may need during the course of the morning.
Location: Board Room
This room is for babies once they turn 1 to come and interact in a bright and engaging room until they turn 2. There will be a team of leaders in this room as well as a room leader. Parents can stay in this room however it is not necessary that they do.
Location: Green Room
This environment is for children once they turn 2 until they start their pre-school year of nursery. This will be a fun and interactive room of play, games and story time.
Location: Pink Room
This environment is for children in their pre-school year. Our team of leaders will roll out a vibrant and exciting curriculum, with space for kids to run, play, worship and engage in activities suited to their age and stage. This room will be set up to look like a nursery environment so your child will feel like they are walking into a familiar space.
Location: Lime Room
Allstars Juinors (P1-2)
This room is for children who are in their first two years of primary school. There will be structured play and space for children to encounter Jesus through vibrant worship, teaching, praying for each other and hearing God’s voice.
Location: Blue Room
This room is for children in P3 and P4. This is a great space for kids to play, engage in challenges and activities, as well as getting to know Jesus better through teaching, worship and discussion.
Location: Orange Room
High-5 Stars (p5)
This is a new and exciting room for our P5’s with activities, games, worship, story and a discussion time relevant for this particular school year. High-5 Stars will have a different feel to Allstars as we recognise that there is a developmental jump that occurs for children of this age group.
Location: Hope Centre
Allstars High (P6-7)
This room is for children who are in their last two years at Primary school. We feel it’s important for children in P6 and P7 to be within the same environment because of the unique stage they’re at together with regards to school. There will be games, worship and a story with topics relevant to these school years as they prepare for secondary school.
Location: Hope Centre
This room is available for children who have additional needs and are struggling for these reasons in their age-specific room. We are so excited to be able to offer this space as we want every child to be able to enjoy their time at Vineyard Stars. Within this environment we will have different interactive zones for children to engage with. There is a team running this environment who have additional training for this specific environment. This team also roll out a Jesus centred curriculum with worship, stories and play based learning. In some cases, if a child has physical or additional needs that are beyond our capacity or training, parents may be asked to stay in this room.
Location: Meeting Room 2
