Our Story

Who we are and where we're from

2017 03 04 Oasts Weekend Away 38 1

Our History

South West London Vineyard started with a small group of people in 1987 who wanted to see how following Jesus could make a difference, not only to their lives, but also to the lives of the people in the city around them.

As the church grew, it began planting other churches, which in turn planted other churches, and we are proud to be a part of a still-growing movement of Vineyard churches across the UK and Ireland.

Our Vision

God has called us to make, train and equip disciples, who love and serve Jesus, who love and serve one another and love and serve their neighbours.

God has called us to be the church across SW London through central celebration and local mission.

God has called us to plant churches across the capital by training and equipping potential church planters and sending and nurturing those called by God.

Who Is Jesus?

We believe that Jesus is the hope for our broken world What do you think?

For some, Jesus divides opinion but it’s safe to say that he is not quite what people expected. It is astounding that a homeless, refugee carpenter from a small, insignificant town in the Middle East has become the most important person in history. There are more books, paintings, songs and poetry about him than any other person.

At South West London Vineyard, Jesus is central to our understanding of what it means to be a Christian and how we live our everyday lives. For us, answering the question, ‘Who is Jesus?’ is the most important thing you will do in your life.

One of the best ways to find out more about Jesus is through Alpha. To find an Alpha course near you, take a look at Alpha's website.

Alpha - Autumn 2022

Everyone welcome

Alpha is a series of interactive sessions that freely explore the basics of the Christian faith and some of the bigger questions about life in general.

Whether you have a faith or none or just have questions about what you believe, EVERYONE is welcome!

Each week kicks off with some food, a short film/ talk, followed by a discussion where you can share your thoughts about what you've heard.

If at any point you decide Alpha isn't for you, that's not a problem. There's no pressure, no follow up and no charge.

To get more of a feel of what Alpha is about, take a look here: #TryAlpha

How & when will the course run?

We are looking to run the course in the Autumn and would love to hear from you if you are interested in coming along. The course can be run in-person or in an online format and we'd really appreciate finding out what would be best for you.

By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.
