About Us

Our Story

Originally planted as Milton Keynes Vineyard, almost two decade ago, Grand Union Vineyard (GUV for short) has changed with our city. The name and locations may be different, but the mission has always been the same - to see our city come to know Jesus.

We are a worshipping community where anyone can encounter God and become more whole, whilst serving others. We believe in genuine relationships, true accountability, creative worship, the power of the Holy Spirit and whole-life discipleship. We aim to see people living in freedom, growing as followers of Jesus, developing in leadership and planting churches, as we  strive to play an effective role in the wider church.

We are part of the Vineyard Movement, a worldwide family of more than 2,500 churches in 5 continents with over 140 churches here in the UK and Ireland.

WELCOMING
Everyone is welcome here. To be welcomed means you are not judged. To be welcomed means there is no prejudice. To be welcomed means that everyone is treated the same. There is no hierarchy, no preferential treatment, no VIP area.

LOVING
We are a community of love. We love extravagantly, we love selflessly, we love practically, we love relentlessly. We believe that love conquers all. It is the most important thing, and we love because God first loved us.

ACTIVE
Faith is something active, something real. The outworking of our faith can be seen in our streets, our communities, our schools, universities, workplaces, coffee shops, and homes. It is a daily part of our everday lives.

TRANSFORMATIONAL
You are welcome in our community just as you are. But the more we know God, the more we become like Him and see our lives transformed by the power of his love. Things may never be the same again.

Serving

We love to roll our sleeves up and get our hands dirty serving one another. There are a wide range of opportunities to get involved with. Whatever it is, we encourage everyone to get involved - it's a great way to meet people and play your part in the vision of our church family.

Giving

"It is more blessed to give than receive!" As a community, we take joy in the ways our faith is made stronger through giving and receiving together. There is a satisfaction that comes from following Jesus' example of generosity toward those most in need, and it is a privilege to use our resources to continue telling God's story and help bring measurable change in the world.
