Connecting with God is central to what we do. A live band leads us for sung worship. The words are on the screen and you can join in or just sit back and listen.
We have a talk based on the Bible and our experience of Jesus. The talks are relevant to our day to day lives and there are always things to put into practice.
Listen to past talks
At the end of the talk we reflect on what we have heard and respond. There is no pressure to participate, but always the chance to respond if you wish.
We normally run fun interactive groups for 0-11s. Currently we have a Vineyard Kids Facebook group that parents can join to stay up to date with all our activities for kids.

We value the importance of security and safety and are committed to the safeguarding of all children in our care, with all leaders and helpers fully DBS checked.

VINEYARD KIDS WE SHINE PARTY.
You're invited to our first national kids party at the end of the month! There will be games, craft, slime and lots of messy fun.

Everyone will stay in the car for the whole service. Please bring your own refreshments.
Our Life Groups are at the heart of our church. They are based in Winchester and the surrounding areas. They are a great place to get to know others, do life together, support each other and grow in friendships, community and in your relationship with God.
You would be really welcome to visit a Life Group or give us a call and we can help you find one that is right for you.
We live out our faith in Jesus by practically serving the needs of people in our city through our Storehouse, Street Teams and partner initiatives.
The Storehouse provide free good quality children’s clothes and equipment to those in need. We run a voucher system and accept referrals from statutory organisations across the area. Please get in touch if you need our services or want to donate 'as new' goods.
The Storehouse reach out to serve those in need by providing simple bags of groceries, household items or essential toiletries. To get involved, you can donate food items.
The Storehouse run various seasonal initiatives such as our school uniform appeal. At Christmas we run a Toy Fair, give away Christmas hampers, and provide parcels for the homeless in Winchester.
We also deliver fresh food fortnightly to people who need it, in partnership with Fare Share, and we run basic cookery courses to help people develop new skills and confidence.
In the winter The Storehouse send boxes of clothes and toiletries to refugees and displaced people from Syria. We also send toys to Ebola orphans and disabled children in Sierra Leone, and clothes to children from our Karis Kids partners in Uganda.
Through our Storehouse and agency contacts we identify people with limited income who have specific needs. We post needs on the Acts435 website and donors give money which is then sent to our church so that we can meet the need. If you have a need, please get in touch.
On Saturday nights, a team goes out into Winchester city centre with soup, rolls, tea, coffee, blankets, socks, hats and a listening ear. We help those on the streets by providing for basic needs and giving them someone to talk to. We also support the Winchester Street Pastors scheme.
