Women's Meet-up

Am I the only person who struggles to make meaningful friendships?
How can I be free from comparing myself to others?
How do I get my needs met by ‘spending time with God’?
How does social media impact our self-image?

If you’ve ever asked yourself a question like this then meet other like-minded women at our Women’s Meetup. Happening once a month, we gather to discuss, learn and share practical ways to implement and live out our faith in Jesus as we face a common cultural issue each month.

These evenings host frank, honest discussions so to help ladies feel free to disclose, we won't be admitting children (except babies in arms).

You don't have to book to come along - but it does help us cater if you let us know you're planning to.

The Alpha Course

The Alpha Course

WHAT IS ALPHA?

The Alpha Course provides a unique opportunity for you to discuss and explore Christianity and life's big questions in an informal, fun and friendly environment. Whether you're an atheist or have never considered any kind of spiritual existence, Alpha is an open and safe place where you can find out more about Jesus and ask questions. 

WHAT'S THE FORMAT?

Alpha runs over 10 Monday evenings, each evening beginning with a home cooked dinner where you can meet and get to know others who've joined the course.

Then there's a short easy-to-listen-to talk addressing a particular question relating to faith, religion, spirituality and life. It's not meant to be treated as a lecture but more as an opportunity for you to explore what you really think.

After the talk we break into smaller discussion groups over coffee & cake. It's the perfect time for you to share your thoughts about what's been discussed that evening. 

The whole purpose of the course is to provide a space where you can ask your questions about Jesus, about Christianity, the Church and Bible - so don't be shy!

WHEN'S THE NEXT COURSE?

Alpha begins again on Monday 30 September 2019. You can expect a warm welcome each evening. Whether you're by yourself or coming with friends, we'll do our best to make you feel right at home. 

Lots of people want to try out the first evening before they commit to the whole course - which you are very welcome to do. The entire course, including dinner, is completely free.

Rising to the Call

Jesus commissioned his followers to “Go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.” Matthew 28:18-20

How many of us find this challenging?
Are overwhelmed by it?
Or feel inadequate for the task?

Rising to the Call is for those who have completed Vineyard Introductions, continuing the Equip journey giving you further tools and the confidence you need to respond to this commission. We’ll look at what the Bible has to say about it, the part the Holy Spirit plays in helping us to do it, including how we can use the gifting He’s given us, and how your unique presence in this world is essential to God’s redemptive plan for creation. This is an opportunity to learn with others, with a bit of ‘practice’! Join us to work out how individuals like us can play a part in bringing God’s Kingdom to the world around us. Topics include:

Prophecy & Hearing the Voice of God
Our Spiritual Authority
The Spiritual Battle
Doing Ministry like Jesus

This FREE course runs over 6 Tuesday evenings 7.45pm-9.45pm
17th & 24th Sep & 1st, 8th, 15th, 22nd Oct

An Evening with Dr Barry Funnell

The Faith in the Workplace Connect Group is hosting an evening with Dr Barry Funnell, a longstanding translation consultant working with The Word for the World. Barry travels the world numerous each year checking bible translation work and meeting sometimes very remote communities.

Barry will lead a short devotional, followed by his testimony and then talk about his work as a translation consultant with The Word for The World Bible translators. We will also be able to have some time for questions at the end.

Daniel Davies who co-leads the Faith in the Workplace Connect Group, has recently taken on the role of UK CEO for the charity.

Trustee Recruitment Event

Trustee Recruitment Event

The transition of our senior pastor has created an opportunity to grow our trustee base; we need and welcome more of the church to become involved.

The role of trustees is to support the senior pastor in carrying out his God-commissioned purpose and ensure the church can operate within the laws and boundaries primarily of Vineyard Churches UK, the Charities Commission and the Companies Act.

It may seem a bit daunting to some and as such we have reviewed our model and are looking for a combination of general and seconded (specific needs) trustees that represent the diversity of our church.

Being a trustee is one of the ways you can serve in the church, if you have any professional skills or experience that you could offer as a trustee, we would love to speak to you.

If you think this may be for you please sign up and come along to the Trustee Recruitment Event, if you’re interested but unable to make it please email gil@thevineyardchurch.co.uk.
