Small Groups: Being Family
As the autumn term begins, we will be launching a range of new small groups so we can stay connected with one another as safely & responsibly as we can. These will be posted on the website as and when they are up and running. In order to comply with legislation around the 'rule of 6', we are encouraging small group leaders to be as creative as they can to ensure the safety and well-being of all those in their groups. This term, it may be that on some of the weeks your small group will meet online and then on other groups break into smaller groups of 6 to meet in person. We'd encourage everyone in the church to sign-up to at least one group. Once you sign-up someone will be in touch with you to give you more details.
The Power of Three
With meeting together still a challenge, we want to encourage everyone in the church to find ways to connect with 2 or 3 others for regular contact, prayer & encouragement
'For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.' Matt 18:20
These small groups of 3 are a great way to build deep and lasting relationships and give us all the space we need to share our lives with one another and be real.
Reach out to a couple of friends in the church and agree to meet up, either in person or online, once a week or whenever works - it's up to you.
Meet up for a coffee or a walk or maybe even just a phone call, but we'd encourage you to commit to meeting regularly and intentionally praying for one another.
All it takes it for you to reach out to a couple of people you know and ask them if they'd like to join you in praying for one another and connecting. You'll be surprised how much we all long for deeper, more authentic, vulnerable relationships.
So why not give it a go and see how you get on.
Giving: Living Generously
A Call to Generosity
Spirituality cannot be separated from generosity and the teachings of Jesus compel us to give of our finances to those in need and to commit ourselves to an attitude of generosity.
We want South West London Vineyard to be a church where every member contributes financially to the life of the church in whatever ways they can. The amount we give isn't as important as the heart behind it. The important thing is that each of us gives what God has asked of us – He knows our hearts, our circumstances and the cost of our sacrifice.
Standing Order: The most helpful way to give is by setting up a regular gift each month. Our bank details are:
