I will build my church – Matthew 16:18

We’re so grateful to all the talented people who are helping us to write a new chapter in the story of Stour Valley Vineyard.

The Vineyard Centre, our new midweek building in Tudor Road, Sudbury, is on track to be finished by end of August. We cannot wait!

We have a DIY Sunday on 20th August, so that everyone can come and join in the fun and see the place for yourself. We’re also having a bring ‘n’ share lunch afterwards. This will replace our usual Sunday Service at 10.30am.

We will see you there!


You can pick up some directions from the Welcome Point on Sunday.


Summer can be both relaxing and stressful, and sometimes it is important to take some time out to refresh your mind. Reading and learning more about Jesus and the people who walk with Him in their life is another way to hear about His teachings. Luckily for you, our pastors have put together a much thought out recommended reading list for the summer! Why not check it out here?

We also have some books that you can purchase from the Welcome Point on a Sunday.


Stour Valley Vineyard is nearly 10 years old! Can you believe it?

This September we are celebrating our first decade, and we would be honoured if you would celebrate it with us! Your story is part of our story too, after all.

Church Birthday Celebration

Like our usual Service, our birthday celebration will start at 10.30am. A place where we can truly thank God for everything and eat a bit too much cake!


We are super excited, and we hope you are too!



For more information please don’t hesitate to contact our church office or ask our welcome point on Sunday.


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:

We’re excited to welcome Peter and his wife, Tania as our Sunday morning guest speaker on 25 June, from 10:30am at the Delphi Centre. Peter has a heart to help the vulnerable and those in need. At British Airways Peter built his career in HR and organisation development. In 2010 he joined the Swiss based international humanitarian agency Medair. At Prison Fellowship, Peter is tasked with leading the delivery of PF’s ongoing work in prisons and enabling the organisation to achieve its vision.

Join us from 10.00am for fresh coffee or tea and a warm pastry, it would be great to see you there!








We love all love our dads, don’t we? We all think they do a pretty good job. (Well, most of the time!)

Well, dads, step forward. Whether you have young children or older, this is your moment to be recognise for the super hero that you are.

Children, make sure you bring the old man early on Sunday 18 June at the Delphi Centre, so we can honour them. Warm bacon rolls and other treats will be waiting for them.

We will also a have some fun games with some silly prizes to win and more.

Oh, and If you’ve got a super hero tee-shirt somewhere in your drawer, why not wear it? We’ll have ours on.

See you there faster than a speeding bullet. Cape optional!
