HOW TO FIND US

Address - Ark Putney Academy, Pullman Gardens, Putney, SW15 3DG.

On Foot - If you are walking, the main entrance is on Pullman Gardens. Disabled access available.

By Bus - The Ark is a 5 minute walk from the Green Man Bus Stop (14, 37, 85, 170, 493).

By Train - The Ark is about a 15 minute walk from Putney overground station and 20 minutes from East Putney underground (District line). Alternatively you can get the bus to The Green Man Bus Stop (see above).

By Car - There is ample parking at the school (entrances on Pullman Gardens and Hayward Gardens) and on the surrounding streets.

What to expect

We care far more about you than what you wear - so come as you are and wear what’s comfortable. As you’ll see, Sundays are pretty informal - we’re just imperfect people who are getting together to find out more about Jesus and how we can love and serve others. It doesn’t matter who you are, where you come from or where you’ve been, you’ve got something to bring!

When you arrive, help yourself to some free tea and coffee and sit wherever you like. You won’t be asked to do anything and you aren’t expected to pay for anything. At some point in the morning we’ll be serving doughnuts (or fruit if you prefer), so just sit back and relax!

We run programmes for Vineyard Kids and Youth at the same time as our Sunday Services. Please see below for more information.

What to expect

During term time (02.02.20 - 22.03.20) we will be gathering from 6-7:30pm on Sundays for the Evening Service.

Rather than replicating the morning service, the Evening Service, which is a more intimate space, will offer a range of different content in a very different style.

Each week we worship together, look at the Bible, followed by discussion in groups before ministering to one another. It's a great way to connect with God and with one another. If you're new to the church, it's a great way to meet new people and get connected.

VKids & Baby Room

VKids runs from 10:15am to 12:15pm

Sundays are for everyone – and that includes our children

Green T Shirt Version

VKids is a fun, safe, engaging space for children to hear about God and experience his love in an age appropriate way. We have specially trained, DBS checked volunteer teams who have a real heart for children and families - look out for our VKids team in aqua blue t-shirts!

We want your child to be comfortable in their group - if you are visiting or have come with friends or siblings, you can choose for them to be in the same group.

Babies

For those with young babies, we have a Baby Room where parents and carers can take it easy, grab a coffee, chat or listen to the service via the audio link. There is also a dedicated area for those who wish to feed their babies in private.

12 Months - Four Years

Children aged between 12 months and four years enjoy a room full of toys, games and activities, with an engaging programme which includes singing, craft and stories.

Primary Aged Children (Reception - Year Six)

Primary aged children can choose to join one of our activity groups for the morning: sport, craft or Lego. We also have an older group for those children in Years Five and Six, where they will take a more in-depth look at the content for that Sunday. All children hear clear and simple teaching from the Bible and join together for worship and prayer. We want VKids to be somewhere that all our children can belong, so we do our best to find ways to cater for those children who need some extra help. This includes a dedicated team and quiet space with sensory activities.

For those with slightly older children, our 11-17s meet each week led by a wonderful team of youth workers. Each week we get together for a whole bunch of great activities as well as for worship, prayer and the chance to look at the Bible together.

During the week we run Small Groups and a range of social activities as well as adventure-filled weekends away, mission trips and other fun ways for our young people to get connected and to grow in their faith.

For those of you who are currently studying at university we encourage you to join us on a Sunday morning or evening for worship, ministry and teaching. We know living away from home and going to University for the first time is both an exciting and challenging experience and we would love to be a home and oasis for you during this period of life and to have the privilege of supporting you however we can.

Throughout the year we hold several events with Students in mind, ranging from small groups to student socials and weekends away. Check out the SWLV calendar to see what's coming up.

Our vision is to create an authentic community where you can thrive in your relationship with Jesus and personally grow through your communion with the Holy Spirit - we believe your heavenly Father loves you too much to leave you just as you are! Come along and be supported and encouraged by friends and leaders who are walking the journey side by side with you.
