Covid-19 Update

Even though church looks a little different in these times, and we can’t meet together physically, we’re not stopping! We would love to keep connected!

In these uncertain times our vision stays the same: we are a church captivated by Jesus and abandoned to His mission.

I'm New Here

Hi, thanks for stopping by! We’re sorry we can’t meet you in person but we would love to give you a warm welcome and even have a virtual coffee with you if you’d like to meet one of our team! Fill out your details and we’ll be in touch.

If you’re new to faith then visit our helpful Exploring Faith page where you’ll find lots of information to help you get started on this journey.

How can I stay connected?

There are lots of ways to stay connected at this time. Although it isn’t the same as gathering physically, we’re so grateful that technology means we can still be “together” each week on Sundays and in our smaller groups.

For our latest updates follow us on Facebook @VineyardBath and Instagram @VineyardBath, as well as our Youth Instagram and Vineyard Kids Facebook group.

Check out our suggestions to stay connected…

How can I help others?

In this time of crisis we want to support the vulnerable. Our compassion projects continue to function (meeting government guidelines) and we are working together as a church and as individuals scattered amongst our own communities to love and support those around us.

If you have any stories of how you are partnering with Jesus we would love to hear them and share them as encouragement to others. Please email Jen with any stories.

“In the midst of a very severe trial, their overflowing joy and their extreme poverty welled up in rich generosity.  For I testify that they gave as much as they were able, and even beyond their ability. Entirely on their own,  they urgently pleaded with us for the privilege of sharing in this service to the Lord’s people.  And they exceeded our expectations: They gave themselves first of all to the Lord, and then by the will of God also to us.”
2 Corinthians 8v2-5

We want to be generous as a church always! Each week we’ll be spotlighting a different local need that we’ve been made aware of that we would love to support and raise money for. So far we have generously given towards Genesis Trust, Mercy In ActionThe Nest Project (see the video below) and The Dairy House.

Let's Pray

We’re really passionate about continuing to pray together in this season and have two suggestions of how you can get involved:

We’ll be joining with the body of Christ across the country on Sunday evenings at 7pm to pray for our nation. We’ll be lighting candles in our windows to symbolise Jesus the light of the world. Debby Wright, National Director of Vineyard Churches has written a prayer for this time which you can read on the VCUKI website, or perhaps pray the Lord’s Prayer.

We’d also love to invite you to be devoted to daily prayer. Can we encourage you to pray for the current situation for 15 minutes each day. Please find a time that works for you and your situation, be creative, and let’s be a united force in our prayers!

What if I need support?

We would love to chat and pray with you. If you are already in a Core Community please contact your Core Community leader. Otherwise drop us an email at hello@vineyardbath.co.uk and we’ll be in touch.

What if I have questions about faith?

We would love to tell you more about Jesus and the hope we have in Him. Visit our Exploring Faith page.
