vision « Stour Valley Vineyard





…a motley collection of ordinary people who are on a journey of surrender and transformation through the grace of God. They choose to be real with Him and real with one another. They are generous and compassionate; no strings attached. They are grace-givers, hope-bringers, wide-eyed dreamers and risk-takers. They laugh together, cry together, worship together and serve together. They know that little things done with great love will change their community, starting not least with themselves. They are us.


Our vision

A church surrendered to God, transformed by grace.


Our mission

Planting vibrant Christian communities in the Stour Valley to bring healing and hope in Jesus’ name.


Being intentional

Out of this vision the church becomes intentional in three ways:

We want to draw in those who have no or minimal relationship with Jesus and His Church because God cares about our lives, however ordinary they may seem. We do this in a non-religious way through fun socials, events and just ‘hanging out’ with each other.

We want people in the Stour Valley area to know Jesus more by growing in faith. We want people to experience the fullness of His love and purpose for their lives.

We do this by encouraging one another to meet together regularly to learn about the Bible, share our life stuff, worship, pray for one another and to serve each other’s practical needs.

As it has been a huge blessing to receive inspiration and encouragement from the Holy Spirit through the loving example of other Christians, we want to generously give it all away to others. After all, this stuff is too good to keep to ourselves. We believe that this is, ultimately, the only way the church can continue to grow.

Everybody gets to play, because everybody has something give.
