Discovering Vineyard


Discovering Vineyard is one of our Explore small groups where you can find out about who we are and how you can join in. The next group will start in late September 2019 in Headingley. This group is led by David & Alison Flowers. You don't have to be a Christian to join the group - you are welcome to come as you are - it's for everyone who would like to find out how Leeds Vineyard works, our story, where are going, why we do what we do, what we believe and how you can join in. 

Simeon R-H came to a recent Discovering Vineyard and said, "it was a really good way of getting connected with the church beyond just meeting on a Sunday morning. I wouldn't have settled in so quickly at Leeds Vineyard if I hadn’t have gone along to Discovering Vineyard; and I’m especially thankful for everyone in the group who made it such a welcoming and pleasant group to be part of."

You can sign up here.

Discovering Vineyard runs over 8-10 weeks and feels just like an ordinary housegroup with a time of worship, some teaching and discussion and then an opportunity to pray for one another. Over the course of the 10 weeks we get to meet some of the leaders at the Vineyard and we will explore:

  • What we believe
  • Our story
  • Our Vision
  • Our Values
  • Our Priorities
  • How we care for people
  • How we minister with the poor
  • How we teach the bible
  • How to pray for the sick and demonised
  • How to develop your spiritual gifts
  • Why we worship
  • Guidelines for sharing
  • Vineyard Distinctives
  • Difficult questions
  • How we handle money
  • How to join in and what it means, why we don't have a membership
  • Where we are going - our plans for the next year

Attendance at Discovering Vineyard 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 join the group for a term and find out what and who we are and how to join in. You may have questions and doubts, you may not have made a commitment to follow Jesus - you are still very welcome to join in and see if you can find answers to your questions.

"It's a must, it sets the scene and lets you know the basis behind how things are done".
"An excellent way of learning about the "bus", its route and deciding whether or not you want to get on!"
