lives changed & communities transformed
At West Wilts Vineyard Church, we believe that it’s our responsibility to pave the way for people to encounter Jesus and connect with church. We trust that this website, with all its information, will give you a ﬂavour of who we are, what we are about, and perhaps most importantly, where we are going! Our heart as a community is to say “come as you are”. Our hope is that you will discover a place where people are genuine and committed to the idea that every one of us is on a journey, trusting that together we can grow to be all that God has created us to be. If you have never been to church or you’re simply looking for somewhere to call home, why not pay us a visit – you will ﬁnd a very warm welcome!
West Wilts Vineyard Church is all about, all because of, and all for, Jesus. We are not a “building” as such but rather a community of people who want to embody the type of church Jesus had in mind – a vibrant, fun, intergenerational, and purposeful community with the heart and desire to experience and communicate the life changing power of God’s love and compassion. We are not a “religious institution”, but aim to be a movement of faith, hope and love, believing that as we connect and draw closer to Jesus, and each other, lives can be changed for the better. Because of this we value living life together, taking our ﬁrst steps and our next step, caring about the things God cares about. This means that we work together to be a worshipping church that has Jesus at its centre, an outward focused church that knows how to serve God and those around us, a generous church that understands the value of giving, and a relevant church that knows how to communicate Jesus in a loving and genuine way.
Our invitation to you is “come as you are”, because that’s where God meets us – as is. You don’t have to dress up, or pretend to be something or someone other than yourself. From there we will help each other grow to be all God intended us to be. We don’t pretend to have all the answers, but we believe in a God who does.
West Wilts Vineyard holds a vision to become a regional church. This means that we desire to see a network of communities released and serving the people of Bradford on Avon, Westbury, Trowbridge, Melksham, Warminster and their surrounding areas. We are afﬁliated to Vineyard Churches UK and Ireland and at the heart of the movement is a simple desire to ‘do the stuff’ of the Bible and moreover to do it in a way that is accessible and relevant to everyone.
