Our Purpose

God is in the transformation business and we get to join in!

Our Vision

We are a people carrying the mandate of Isaiah 61, where the Spirit of God is upon us to bring transformation. We want to see multiple thriving sites across London with Worship, Formation and Mission at their core. 

Our Story So Far

Our journey began in 2015 with a small group of people meeting in a home with a vision to build a church that would bring life to London. We have grown to become the multisite church that we are today, with three physical sites meeting in Balham, Battersea and West SIde. We are a community passionately pursuing God’s heart for our city through our ordinary everyday lives. We are Vineyard 61 Church, on mission to be a reflection of the heart and mind of God for a city in need of good news.
