Fill a bag with hope!

“Remember the poor.” – Galatians 2 v 10

Here at Stour Valley Vineyard our biggest compassion ministry is that of our foodbank Storehouse.

In the last 11 years, we have watched Storehouse grow from being run out of our Pastors cellar, into it now having its own section of the new Vineyard Centre. On Sunday 14th October we plan to spend some time remembering some of the amazing things God has done within our community through Storehouse, and discuss how there are even more amazing things to come! We are watching connections within our area forming in front of our very eyes. This August we fed 60% more people than we did the previous August.

We will see you there!


Are you new to Stour Valley Vineyard? Looking for a church? Or just curious about what we are about.

Join us for lunch on Sunday 30 September from 12:45pm, you can also hear our pastors’, Andrew & Emma, tell their story of how the church was started, our vision and how you could be part of it.

It takes place straight after the Sunday service at the Vineyard Centre (our midweek venue).

If you would like to come or would like to know more, speak to Karen Naylor on Sunday morning, or by dropping us a line or giving us a ring on 01787 377670.




Exploring is good. We’re built for it. Explore more about life, faith and meaning with Alpha.

Alpha is a FREE course exploring the Christian faith, each session looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. There is also the opportunity to ask questions and share your point of view; whether you’re a Christian or not.

Our next course runs for 8 weeks from Wednesday 19 September, 7:30pm, Vineyard Centre.

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

Find out more about Alpha and book your place.

“Then Peter said to them, repent, and be baptised every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit” – Acts 2:38

We have a special service this Sunday and we really hope you and your family and friends will be able to come!

We are baptising three people who’ve chosen to live a life for Jesus and want the opportunity to declare their faith publicly.

Just for this week, we will be meeting at Sudbury Baptist Church at 4pm. Arrive from 3.30pm for drinks and cakes.

Whether you are new, just looking at church and faith, you are very welcome to join us. It is going to be a fun and joyful occasion.

We look forward to celebrating this special day together. See you there!


Please note: this afternoon service replaces our normal Sunday morning service at the Delphi Centre. (We will be back at the Delphi Centre, 10.30am on Sunday 6th May.)
