We hope you will be able to join us at Assington Hall, Assington 10.30 am for our Good Friday meditative service.

This will be a time when where we read the Bible passages of the Passion story together, reflect and pray before taking communion together.

Families, friends and visitors are very welcome. We will contemplate on the last three words uttered by Jesus before his death on the cross: “It is finished.” Words that would come to have such a huge, lasting impact on this world for every age to come.

Join us for our final steps towards the cross!

On Easter Sunday we will look at three other words – “He is risen!”


We are super excited about our 24-7 Week of Prayer! We hope you’ll be able to spend an hour with as we approach the Easter weekend at Vineyard.

The Prayer Room is open from Monday 26 March to Thursday 29 March, 8am-11pm and will be, for the very first time, at the Vineyard Centre, Tudor Road, Sudbury.

The room is is a place where you can go on your own or with family or friends. A place where you can spend time with God and encounter him in different ways.

It is not about talking non-stop for an hour! Relax! You can talk, listen, sing, draw, paint, express your feelings through music or silence. It is up to you. This hour belongs to you. We just offer it to you as a an inspirational creative space to allow you to interact with God in a way that suits you.

Book your hour

24-7 prayer


Whether you have faith, not faith or some faith, one thing is for sure, uncertainty is unavoidable. Being fearful is optional.

In this short series to lead us up to Easter Sunday, we remind ourselves that the faith of Jesus’ early followers was characterised by fearlessness, confidence in Jesus, and love for others. But, like blunt nails driven in by a hammer, they felt the pain of the blows by those who were offended by their words and lifestyle – much in the same way the teaching of Jesus still offends people today.

What would be said about your faith? Winston Churchill said, “Fear is a reaction, but courage is a decision.” How courageous are you feeling?

Join us for our Easter series to see how you can remain strong under pressure, based on the reassuring power of the cross and resurrection.

10.30am on Sundays at the Delphi Centre, Newton Road, Sudbury. Freshly brewed coffee, drinks and pastries served from 10am.


We will be starting our 24-7 Prayer Week by gathering together in a time of worship and intercession on Sunday 25 March, 7:00pm at the Vineyard Centre.

We look to actively seek God through praise and worship. Let’s experience God’s power together as we humble ourselves and offer up a sacrifice of praise!

No need to book, just turn up, feel free to invite family and friends, open to all!


Come and join us for a bite to eat and get to know others.

If you usually find you’re by yourself for lunch on Sunday why not join us on the first Sunday of each month at 12:30pm. It is a great opportunity to meet people and make friends over a spot of lunch!

We welcome singles of all circumstances and ages.

Children are also welcome!

Speak to Karen Naylor or Katherine Mills on Sunday or contact the church office on 01787 377670 for more info


As part of our journey to Easter, many of us at our church are doing The Lent Experience, which is a set of weekly challenges, based on the classic spiritual disciplines of the Church. We are also encouraging each other to develop a daily prayer life. Check out the latest post from our pastor to learn how to pray the Daily Examen. #thelentexperieince
