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!
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 joined the ship ‘Logos Hope’ in February for an initial two-year period.
We have also started sending a couple of francophones to Mulhouse, France with a team from Vineyard UK and Ireland to build up and encourage a church there.
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.
