Small Groups: Being Family
In response to the current crisis we will not be meeting together as small groups in the usual way. We are looking at ways we connect through on-line small groups and continue to serve & support one another as together we seek to extend God's kingdom everywhere and in every way. We would encourage everyone to sign up to a small group and all you have to do is sign-up and someone will be in touch with you.
Everyone has something to bring to the life of the church and finding somewhere to serve is a great way to get connected with what’s going on and get to know other people better. Take a look below and let us know how you'd like to help out.
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:

4.2.20 The Whole Word for the Whole World
Over the past few years we have committed ourselves to giving away everything that is collected through the offering baskets on a Sunday to a variety of nominated charitable organisations.
From start of the New Year to Easter we will be giving all Sunday offerings to the work of the 4.2.20 Foundation as they seek to translate and make available the Bible to the whole world.
Imagine a world where people don’t have knowledge of the creation story, the stories of faith in the Old Testament or even the 10 commandments. Right now over 6,500 languages, representing multiple millions of people, do not have the access to the whole Word of God. Most of them are without any foundation of the whole Bible.
4.2.20 Foundation is a non profit organisation committed to advancing access and engagement with the whole Word of God for every language, culture & people.
They aim to dramatically accelerate the training of Old Testament translators, checkers & consultants in order for it to be possible to reach the goal of beginning Old Testament translations in every language by 2033. This acceleration will naturally increase the supply of full Bibles available for recording and distribution among oral learners.
They are also committed to equipping translators, consultants and teachers with knowledge and tools for engaging unreached oral people with whole-Bible worldview and with the whole Word in oral forms.
HOW TO GIVE:
Financial donations can be made through the offering baskets on a Sunday, alternatively, you can donate by going to Online Giving
If you are a UK taxpayer you can claim Gift Aid on any donations by placing your offering in a Gift Aid envelope (available from the Welcome Desk & in the offering baskets). This will increase your gift by 25%.
It doesn't matter how big or small your financial gift, just put it in the offering baskets on a Sunday and we will ensure the whole amount goes to this wonderful expression of the kingdom of God.
Thank you in advance for your generosity.
