A time for men to connect!

We know that weekends are a valuable time for men, so we meet on the 1st Saturday of each month, from 9am finishing around 10am. This means there’s still time to wash the car, cut the lawn, go on that obligatory shopping trip, plus those other Saturday duties that befall us blokes.

Our next breakfast is on Saturday 1 July 2017, 9:00am at Niche Cafe, Gainsborough Street, Sudbury. Feel free to invite a friend.

If you have never been before or new to the church, we would love to see you.

Dads feel free to bring your children.

See you there!

In 2007 we started Stour Valley Vineyard for people who didn’t like church or believe in God.

We invited people to come as they are. And you did. Thank you.

Today the church is made up of the most amazing, fun-loving, generous bunch of people you’ll ever hope to meet.

But we’re also a people on the move. We’ve met a God who loves us, pursues us and really knows us. And we’ll do anything short of sin to share that good news with others in our community.

It’s why we’re super excited to announce our new Vineyard Centre in Tudor Road, Sudbury.

From September, just in time for our 10th church birthday, we’ll have brand new
staff offices, new Storehouse Foodbank facilities, as well as a midweek space for 100 people.

We are also thrilled to be working in partnership with Ormiston Sudbury Academy.

This is a fantastic school, run by an amazing head and staff, so you can imagine how honoured we feel to be their new neighbours.

As our plans progress, we will be bring you more news, as well as provide ways for you to get involved.

Watch this space!


We are really excited that the prayer room will be open again from Sunday 25 June for a week of prayer.

Spending an hour or more in the prayer room is a fantastic opportunity to take some personal time to draw close to God and experince his presence. For more detail click on the link below:
