Living Compassionately

We want to be a community that demonstrates the heart and extravagant generosity of Jesus, both in our individual lives and as a church. God has placed us each in unique environments and everyday there are opportunities to show Jesus’ love to those around us. As God has grown us as a community, He has highlighted needs that we have been able to respond to as one-off projects, long term enterprises and in partnerships with other churches and organisations.

We aim to give ourselves away to others, showing scandalous grace and radical generosity.

Dairy House

In 2015, Rob and Suz Addicott opened the Dairy House on their farm as a home for vulnerable adults. With a heart for helping the rural homeless to transition from this lifestyle, they have established a thriving community where residents live together and engage in a wide variety of activities, including cultivating their community garden. We love welcoming the residents into our church family and many join us on Sundays and are part of Core Communities.

If you would like to get involved with the Dairy House and spend time with the residents then please contact Suz.

This project is run in partnership with the Elim Connect Centre.

A Community Heart

The Nest Project

This project began in 2015 when a group of pioneering women in our church caught God’s heart for families in need. Beth Hamilton, Pip Garnett and Chloe Powell went on to establish The Nest Project. We want to support children and families in BANES by giving away clothes and equipment for 0-5 year olds completely free of charge to anyone who needs it, regardless of income, faith or background.

The Nest Project has grown into a friendly hub for families who enjoy a slice of homemade cake, a good chat with our volunteers and the opportunity to pick up clothing, buggies, bedding, toys and more for their little ones.

Visit The Nest Project website to find out more, or if you would like to get involved please drop us an email.

Contact the Elderly

We recognise that many people in Bath feel isolated and lonely and we understand the value of relationships and the joy that friendships bring. When Meg Sadler discovered the charity Contact the Elderly, she struck up a partnership and now a group of volunteers from Vineyard host monthly tea parties where those who live alone or who might struggle to otherwise get out and about, can enjoy an afternoon of conversation and laughter with a good cup of tea.

We all long to live missional and compassionate lives and we always want to hear from others who are passionate about finding ways to meet people’s needs. We are only at the beginning of this journey to live compassionately and there is much more to be done so please do get in touch.

If you would like to get involved please email Megan.
