Jesus said: “Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these!” - Matthew 19:14

We recognize that children are an incredibly precious gift from God. At Vineyard Groningen, we have a Kids Ministry that seeks to provide a loving environment where children can get to know their Maker and grow in their relationship with Him.

Our Kids Ministry runs during the services. We welcome your child(ren) to join in one of the following groups:

Nursery (ages 0-4)

Kids (ages 5-8)

Preteens (ages 9-12)

Youth Ministry


Twice a month our teenagers (age 13-18) gather together for a hangout. On the first Sunday of the month, they meet during the service to learn about and discuss the Christian faith. On the third Sunday of the month, it is time for food, fun and games.


The Vineyard Student Ministry (VSM) makes sure that all the students and young professionals in the church get to connect and learn together during their time in Groningen. They do this through Discipleship Groups and by organizing regular events.

Make the best of your time here in Groningen and connect with other students from all over the world, growing together as followers of Jesus!

Discipleship Groups

Discipleship Groups are the heartbeat of our church community. This is the place where we truly connect together and grow in our discipleship to Jesus. It's a place to experience authentic community and friendship and learn together about how to practice the way of Jesus. We encourage everyone that sees Vineyard Groningen as their temporary or permanent home church to become part of a group!

There are a variety of groups available. Some groups consist largely of students, others are aimed more at young professionals or families, and still others at those in other stages of life. Some are a mix of all of the above.

Twice a year, in the Fall and Spring, we run a message series of about 8-10 weeks focusing on discipleship, making use of materials provided by Practicing The Way.

If you are interested in joining a group, please complete the form below to get connected. Ideal moments to step in are September and January, but even when the season is running, we would be happy to connect you to a group.
