Whilst we first met together as York Vineyard in the Autumn of 2009, the seed and vision were planted in our hearts more than a decade beforehand. We began with just our family and a few friends. The church you see today, we are pleased to say, stays true to that vision and we are thrilled to see our bunch of believers growing both deeper in Christ and wider in the local community. You can find out more about vision, dream and aim and what that looks like on the pages of this website, but to find out more please come along to a meeting and then why not sign-up to a newcomer’s lunch?

Our vision…

… We have been called to build a 21st century church that is vibrant in worship and is ministering in the power of the Holy Spirit, a church that is cultivating relationships which provide a compassionate and inclusive environment, a church that is not only fun to be in but that is relevant for today.

Our dream…

… is to reach and influence the city and region by building a growing Jesus centered, Bible-based church which will empower people to Worship God and reach those who don’t yet know Him with truth, love and kindness.

Our aim…

… to train and equip people in the ways of Jesus and to extend the kingdom of God by developing leaders, making disciples and planting new churches.

 Whether you are an individual struggling to make ends meet, an entrepreneur, a student, a young family, a single parent, an international, young or old….you are welcome, just come as you are!
