Discovering Vineyard is a small group where you can find out about who we are and how you can join in. This group runs each term and is led by David & Alison Flowers (and others). You don't have to be a Christian to join the group - you are welcome to come as you are - simply seeking, wanting to know more or already a follower of Jesus.
We will share nuggets of stories and information about our vision and values and we'll invite you into an exciting future. We will explain how we work as a church - how we make decisions and spend money, how we care for people and care for the poor. We will discuss what it means to join a community of faith like ours and what it means to be a disciple of Jesus.
This group takes the form of a small group - most evenings we will share refreshments, worship and then learn about how the Vineyard does church and discipleship. We will learn to pray for one another and support each other in doing life.
Attendance at the Discovering Vineyard small group is a pre-requisite for some aspects of life in our community. For example: getting baptised, getting married (by one of our pastoral staff), having your children dedicated (or baptised) or joining the Servant Leadership School.
There is plenty of room in the Vineyard for you to find a place that matches your God-given passions and gifts and to serve alongside others who share your hopes and dreams. So we would love you to come on the course and find out what and who we are and how to join in.
