As a Church, God has called us to build a spirit empowered community that is God focused, with a passion for people. Our Vision is to see Hull transformed and for us to be used by God as influencers and missionaries in our City, to see lives changed, and to make Jesus’ name known. We aim to train and equip Christians to be effective in extending God’s Kingdom and to be a beacon of light in these times. Everything we do is for and through one person. His name is Jesus.
HV loves Students is the name we have given to the Student Ministry of the Church. We believe that students are strategically placed by God to do and see incredible things in their generation. We were made for such a time as this. We also believe that, as Bill Hybels says, ‘the local Church is the hope of the world.’ If we tie these two things together, we can see that students working within the parameters of the local Church are a force to be reckoned with!
Love. Serve. Party
Here at HV loves Students our tagline is Love. Serve. Party. It is our mantra. This is what we do. We love the students of Hull University and communicate to them through our lives and deeds how good God is. We serve students, showing them practically how much God loves them. We party with students, aiming to break stereotypes of what Christians are like and do Church in a way that is contemporary, relevant, accessible and fun!
University is one of the biggest mission fields out there, with thousands and thousands of students who don’t yet know Jesus. Our heart at HV loves Students is for students. What we want more than anything is for you to grow a deeper relationship with the creator of the Universe. We would love for you to come and hang out with us at church at our Sunday services or one of our student events, and get involved!
What now? In a nutshell…
Come to Church! This one is easy enough, we are situated on Vulcan Street, off Clough Road, and our services are at 10:30am on a Sunday morning and 7:00pm in the evening for a more student-focused night. We have just moved buildings into a huge warehouse. Trust us… it is incredible. We will be hosting big events there, from acoustic nights, a night club, pancake parties, Alpha courses and many more. Come and check it out!
Join a small group. Small groups are the heartbeat of who we are as a Church. A great way to settle in fast and build friendships is to join a small group at Hull Vineyard, where we spend one night a week worshipping, studying the Bible, experiencing God and hanging out. We have a load of student small groups, and if you really want to get involved here, we would encourage you to make this a priority.
Newsflash: Church isn’t just what we do on a Sunday! We are the Church and we were created to love God and love people! One of our primary calls as Christians is to love the world we are in and lead it into relationship with God. We call this mission. We do loads of mission on campus that we would love you to get involved with from giving out free water bottles outside Asylum nightclub to running Student Alpha Courses! It’s an amazing way to serve students and communicate that God loves them!
Here at Hull Vineyard Students we love ‘hanging out.’ It’s awesome. So in order to do this we have got loads of fun socials planned! From ‘Big Fun’, to film nights and chill out lunches, we have got it all! We value great community here, and we want to cultivate that in our student ministry.
