Forgiveness is a central theme in Jesus’ teaching. It is why Jesus had to die on the cross, so that we might be forgiven. But what do we need to be forgiven from? Surely, most of us aren’t that bad as people, are we!

So imagine how forgiveness could be a gift that brings healing and releases life. What if you got what it is be forgiven, and then you became a life-healer and life-bringer to others?

Maybe you need to forgive yourself. Maybe you need to give someone from your past. It’s time to remove the roadblocks that are blocking your path to reaching your potential and be set free.

On Sunday mornings for three weeks in February we’ll look at finding healing in forgiveness, receiving and giving, to create softer, tender hearts towards those in broken, bruised relationships. We’ll learn to forgive in an unforgiving world.




The Vineyard National Leaders’ Conference, at Trent Vineyard in Nottingham, starts tomorrow.

Over 1200 leaders from across the movement will be gathering for four days of teaching and ministry, which includes a number of us from Stour Valley Vineyard. Please pray that this will be a significant time for our movement, as well as for those going from our church.

The good news is that you can be part of the experience too. Catch the main morning and evening sessions live online and watch from the comfort of your living room. Simply click here. You can also download the VCUKI app on your mobile device at:


Speakers include John and Debby Wright (Vineyard National Leaders), Jon Tyson (Lead Pastor of Church of the City New York) and Mike Pilavachi (Soul Survivor).

We hope you enjoy joining in at home!

Saturday 16 December, 3-5pm, Vineyard Centre

We have been in our new Vineyard Centre a couple of months now and thought it was about time that we invited our neighbours around for a drink, and Christmas is a great time to do that. The drop-in will be an opportunity for people and organisations from our local community to come and say hi and get to know a little more about what we do at the Vineyard Centre.

There will be drink and festive treats to share and fun activities for the kids.

Bring your Santa hats or wear a festive jumper and come and say hello to someone new.
