Starting on Wednesday 17 January 2018 for 8 weeks, from 7:30pm at the Vineyard Centre.

Alpha is an opportunity for you to explore the Christian faith, ask questions and share your point of view; whether you’re a Christian or not. This FREE course is made up of sessions that look at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation, oh and there is also food as well.

Join others like yourself and discover the possibilities of a life less ordinary.

Join us for our hugely popular Glow – community carol service on Christmas Eve, from 6:30pm at the Delphi Centre.

This is a great way to start Christmas – so do invite your family and friends to enjoy the celebrations too. Arrive from 6pm to a warm welcome with drinks and festive treats. The service starts at 6:30pm lasting about an hour, packed with familiar carols, readings, and drama, along with a short talk on the reason for the season.

We are really looking forward to welcoming the community to celebrate the birth of Jesus with carols by glowstick.

Saturday 16 December, 3-5pm, Vineyard Centre

We have been in our new Vineyard Centre a couple of months now and thought it was about time that we invited our neighbours around for a drink, and Christmas is a great time to do that. The drop-in will be an opportunity for people and organisations from our local community to come and say hi and get to know a little more about what we do at the Vineyard Centre.

There will be drink and festive treats to share and fun activities for the kids.

Bring your Santa hats or wear a festive jumper and come and say hello to someone new.

Advent Bring ‘n’ Share Lunch, 3 December, 12.00-2.00pm

Christmas is coming and we’re super excited!

So while we’re all still feeling calm and collected, we thought it’d be fun to have a relaxed Sunday lunch together after our morning service on 3rd December at the Delphi Centre.

All you need to bring is something savoury and sweet to share.

Leave your food on a table in the Caffe Vineyard area when you arrive at the morning service. Or if prefer, ask one of the catering to team to store it in the kitchen for you.

If struggling financially, please feel free to just bring yourself and your family. God always provides!

See you then!

The last 10 years have been quite an adventure, as we have looked to establish new expressions of God’s love in our town and the surrounding areas.

We want to celebrate it by inviting you to be part of our 10:10 Vision. It’s a reference to the words of Jesus found in John’s gospel: but also to the last ten years and points to the next ten years to come.
