…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.
vision and mission
Our vision is to be a church surrendered to God, transformed by grace. Our mission is to bring life in all its fullness in Jesus’ name to our towns and villages in the Stour Valley. If that excites you too, let’s walk together!
Andrew and Emma Stewart-Darling moved with their three daughters to south Suffolk in the summer of 2005. They had been living in West London since Andrew had finished his theological training in 1995. He was an Assistant Pastor with Riverside Vineyard Church, before helping to pioneer an Anglican church plant in St Margaret’s Twickenham in 2000. Life was good. Andrew was near Chelsea football ground, so all was well with the world…
Every family has its own values. They are what help make a church feel like home. Every Vineyard in the world shares these values. We hope they might appeal to you too.
