MORE ABOUT SUNDAYS

BUILDING

In 2021 we were able to purchase our church building, Hamilton House, made possible through the generosity of the church, a mortgage from Kingdom Bank, and God’s rich blessing.

 

This is an incredible space which facilitates the outworking of our vision and all that God has laid on our hearts. We have been able to expand current ministries and invest in new ones. The building provides a great base, not only as a spiritual home, but also a place which we can open up to the community.

 

Some areas of the building require some repair work and alterations to meet with regulations. We also have some exciting plans to make alterations in order to facilitate growth. This will benefit us all on a Sunday morning, as well as benefitting all the groups and ministries that use the building throughout the week.

We are also pleased to have received a grant of £41,300 from the Benefact Trust.

GIVING

Our goal is to raise £800,000 for the building project. If you consider York Vineyard home, we would invite you to pray about what you can give as an act of worship. 

To give to the building campaign, we would encourage you to pick up a Giving Card from on Sundays which includes relevant giving information and Gift Aid details.
