Welcome Events


Each term we run events specifically for those new to the church or those wondering if we might be the church for them.

Those new to the church often tell us how helpful these events are in meeting some others who are also new, making friends in the early days, and helping to decide if we are the church for you.

Hear the story of how our church was planted, meet the staff, meet others also new to the church.

We encourage anyone new to the church to come along to these events. We will be looking at what sort of church we’re building here in Bury St Edmunds and our vision for the future.

Welcome Lunches And Evenings

Welcome Lunch

One way we love to connect with people interested in finding out more is through lunch. If you are new to Vineyard and would like to know more about us, we invite you to come along. Join us for a relaxed Sunday lunch and a chance to meet us and the staff team. Children are, of course, very welcome. We would love to meet you!

Welcome Evening

If you've recently joined the church, or are wondering if we're the church for you, then we'd love you to come and join us for pizza and a beer. The evening is a great stepping stone to getting more connected as well as an opportunity to ask any questions you may have, no matter how small or obvious they might be.

Senior Pastors
