Welcome to Belfast City Vineyard’s weekly service page.
On this page you’ll be able to view our Sunday sermon broadcast as well as have access to a variety of resources for family and personal discipleship through the week.
Our current sermon series is called Open. During lent we are declaring that we are open to the work of the Holy Spirit in our lives.
Below you’ll find our last broadcast sermon and on a Sunday morning a link to our upcoming broadcast.
To catch up on the current series or to listen to any of our podcasts you can follow this link.
Every week at BCV we want to offer prayer ministry for those who wish to respond to what the Holy Spirt is prompting or to those who have any need physical, mental or spiritual.
This week we are trialling a new online system. Sign up by 11:30am for one of our prayer slots starting at 12noon.
Alternatively, if you don’t fancy a zoom call you can send in prayer requests to firstname.lastname@example.org and our team of intercessors will be praying for you.

Weekly Worship Set
Each week our worship leaders put together a YouTube playlist of songs that they feel are speaking into our community.
Please allow yourself some time to worship with these playlists and invite the presence of God to minister and speak to you.
(links opens a new tab in YouTube or Spotify)
We believe the most influential voice in a child’s life is their parent’s and so we believe you are the best person to help them grow and develop in their walk with Jesus.
We have developed some resources to help you in that journey. Each week you’ll be able to find a Bible story, reflection from our kid’s leader, kid’s song of the week, a family time downloadable resource and a pre-school singing time video.
Nursery to P7
This week our kids story is the story of Noah. You can watch the Jesus Story Book Bible here.
Our children’s pastor Katie has some thoughts to share with our young ones on the story of Noah.
bAbbas & 2-3s
If you’re a pre-schooler, join Katie and Jasmine for our singing time.
Our featured kids song this week is Rainbow by Hillsong Kids.
Why not take some time each day to dance and sing to this song with your children and spread a bit of hope!
We are committed to caring for our youth as best as possible in this season and as such have implemented an “Online Youth” strategy to ensure they are still able to access community and support when needed.
We have plenty planned over the coming weeks which you can be kept up to date with through our social media schedule.
Join us weekly as Lynne and Paul Gibson host “Gospel with the Gibsons” on Sunday evenings for our youth via Youtube. You can check out the latest episode below, or on a Sunday, watch their weekly premier from 7pm.
How to read the Bible
Time in the scriptures is a key part of our spiritual formation. But many of us may be new to reading the Bible and don’t know where to start. Or perhaps we’ve been trying for years and struggling to find a suitable rhythm that works.
Join us Monday to Friday at 9am and 6pm for our daily rhythms on FacebookLive. These are a chance for us to connect daily as a community around the Bible, worship and prayer.
Follow our BCV Facebook page to be kept up to date with broadcasts.
We are more aware than ever that there are people in our city who need to know Jesus and are longing for true community. There is so much we can do even in the midst of mandated social distancing to let people know they are loved and valued.
VCUKI have recently put out a resource to help us be the hands and feet of Jesus right on our own street. Check out the “Viral Kindness” post on VCUKI website here.
Pastors Reading Recommendations
There are many amazing books out there to help with our growth as we follow Jesus. Here are a few that our pastors highly recommend reading if you have the time….
In this book, Peter Scazzero outlines a roadmap for discipleship with Jesus that is powerfully transformative. He unveils what’s wrong with our current definition of “spiritual growth” and offers not only a model of spirituality that actually works, but seven steps to change that will help you experience authentic faith and hunger for God.
Ken Shigematsu shows that spiritual formation is more than just solitude and contemplative reflections. Spiritual formation happens in the everyday, in each and every moment of life.
For those caught up in the busyness of work, family, and church, it often feels like time with God is just another thing on a crowded “to-do’ list. Ken explains how the time-tested spiritual practice of the “rule of life” can help bring busy people into a closer relationship with God.
At BCV we believe giving is an act of worship to God. If you are a guest with us please feel no obligation to give, this is just how we keep the ministry of BCV going.
The most effective way for us to process giving is through a direct debit, however one off gifts are very welcome also. You can donate through the link below.
