Where Can I Park?True Vine Church does not have a car park, however there is plenty of on-street parking available on a Sunday morning and after 6pm during the week when single yellow line areas become available for free parking on Newport High Street. There are also local pay and display car parks available. All the information is available in the attached PDF. Please note, it is your responsibility to check for any changes to parking restrictions or charges.
Can I Get To You Via Public Transport?We are a short (2-3 minute) walk away from Newport Bus Station, which serves areas across the Isle of Wight. Visit www.islandbuses.info for more information about bus timetables.
What Type Of Church Are You?If you want to get technical then True Vine Church is technically non-denominational but we would fit into the Evangelical Free bracket. We are a fairly modern church with a relaxed atmosphere and contemporary worship. You can read our statement of faith here: https://www.tvciw.org/ourbeliefs
What Does A Typical Sunday Service Look Like?Our Sunday services start at 10.30am with the meeting host welcoming everyone. We then have a time of worship led by the band with lyrics displayed on two projection screens. We then have a speaker give a talk for approximately 30-45 minutes. At some point during our service an offering will be taken to allow regular attenders to donate to the church to help fund our work- there is no obligation for visitors to donate. After the service, tea, coffee and biscuits are served in our cafe area behind the main stage.
Is There A Dress Code For Church?Not exactly, we want people to feel relaxed in church, you can wear whatever you feel comfortable in, providing it is family friendly and not likely to cause offence. You can dress as smart or as casual as you like providing you are fully clothed. If you can wear it in the supermarket then you can probably wear it in church! Of course if you are visiting us for a formal occasion such as a wedding then a different dress code may apply!!
Can I Bring My Dog Into Church?We don't specifically encourage the bringing of dogs into church because we do not have any facilities for them. If they are present then they must be extremely quiet, well behaved and not provide any distraction from the service. They must also be very friendly and pose no risk to small children in the church. We may ask you to take your dog outside if it is causing a distraction and we reserve the right to refuse entry if there is already another dog present or if it may pose an issue to a working assistance dog. Assistance Dogs are of course welcome.
What Facilities Do You Have For Babies & Toddlers?There is a self-service crèche with toys available located at the rear of the main auditorium. You are responsible for your own children at all times. This room has a TV screen where you can watch what is happening during the service. Baby changing is available in the female and accessible toilet at the rear of the auditorium.
Do You Have Children's Groups?Visiting children are welcome to join our Sunday morning children's groups. We have a safeguarding policy in place to ensure all our children's workers are correctly recruited and safe working practices are followed. Children’s Groups For Pre-School/Primary School Age Children (Ages 3-11) During the worship a red banner will appear on screen- parents should sign their children in by heading through the left hand doors next to the main stage. Teens Group For Secondary School/Sixth Form School Years 7-13 (Ages 11+) Meets after the worship has finished by heading to the café area through the right hand doors next to the main stage. Parental sign-in is not required.
What Facilities Do You Have For Wheelchair Users?There is a lift that will take you from the ground floor entrance to the 1st and 2nd floor of the building. Onstreet parking outside should be useable with a blue badge. Our main auditorium is located on the 1st floor of our church building. We have an accessible toilet located on the 2nd floor of the building. Please note that it is sadly not possible to access our cafe area or lower meeting room if you are in a wheelchair but we will happily fetch you refreshments from our cafe area after the service. It is important to note that in the unlikely event of an evacuation we will ask you to proceed to a fire refuge area within the building where we will aim to safely evacuate you from the building using an emergency evacuation sledge if required. Any accessibility requirements can be discussed by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Is There A Hearing Loop Available?Currently we do not have a hearing loop system but we are actively investigating this
