WHO WE ARE | OUR VISION & VALUES
Riverside Vineyard Church began in 1988, as a group of Christians meeting in a home.
Since then, God has grown the church in many different ways, bringing together people of diverse ages, cultures and backgrounds.
WORSHIP GOD | LOVE OTHERS | BE JESUS IN THE WORLD
God has called us to build a growing, regional, culturally diverse, Bible-based and prayer-filled church in West London.
In a relevant and contemporary way, empowered by the Holy Spirit, we will worship God, love others and be the good news of Jesus in the world with compassion, mercy and generosity.
We aim to train and equip men & women, children & young people to be effective in advancing God’s kingdom, to develop leaders, to plant new Vineyard churches and to be a blessing to the whole Church.
Motivated By Vision
As a church community, we gather together on Sundays, Small Groups and at other times to experience the dynamic presence of God. We want to be empowered in order to go into our neighbourhoods, families, friendships, workplaces, schools & colleges, to share God's love with others. God has established a strong base at Riverside Vineyard which provides increasing resources, training and care for people as well as a spring-board for church planting and participation in world missions.
We have a number of priorities, things to which we give our time, energy and resources:
Worshipping God with all of our lives and placing a priority on gathering to worship together as a church family
Responding to people's practical needs out of a heart of love & justice.
HEALING & WHOLENESS
Seeking to continue the ministry of Jesus in seeing lives set free, healed, made more whole.
TRAINING FOR SERVICE
We want to be a church that effectively trains people & leaders to be & to do all that He's calling us to.
Prayer is vital to our relationship with God, as we talk with Him and He with us, recognising our need for His Kingdom to come.
RELATIONSHIPS & DIVERSITY IN COMMUNITY
Encouraging genuine, real relationships. A welcoming, inclusive church that brings diversity together in unity.
EQUIPPING FOR LIFE
We want to be people equipped to do life well, and to reach out to help others do the same.
MISSION: LOCAL, WORLD, & CHURCH PLANTING
Reaching out to others locally, nationally & internationally. Playing our part in planting new Vineyard churches.
