Church Planting and Mission

The Vineyard is a Church planting movement, committed to planting churches that will plant more churches. We find that planting a new church is a really effective way of reaching those who don’t know Jesus.


In the UK

In recent years people have gone from Southend to Rayleigh, Leicester, Chelmsford and Ashford (Kent) to plant new churches. We also have very close ties to the church plant in Colchester. Our aim is to send out more couples and teams in the coming years.

We also organize a service at Southend Vineyard Storehouse on the last Sunday of the month to which all are welcome!

Further Afield

We support Ruth Donaldson in Mozambique who works with Iris Global in that needy country. Ruth spent many years in Southend Vineyard before going to serve in Africa.

Becky Breckels was the Southend Vineyard Administrator until December 2016 when God called her to global mission through OM. Becky has been onboard the ship ‘Logos Hope’ for two years nearly. After a short break back in England she will then rejoin the ship for a further year.

Please pray for those involved in mission whether locally through the Southend Vineyard Storehouse, local and UK church plants or globally. If you would like to support Ruth or Becky financially please speak to Kate Faulkner in the office on 01702 612900.
