FIRST STEPS

Central Vineyard is a growing regional church, and we invite you to come as you are, whatever your background.  We are fairly relaxed and informal in style and if you are new to faith or Christianity then you’re not alone, we have a number of people in our church community who are exploring what it means to follow Jesus.

One of the tools we use to help people on this journey is Alpha. Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith, typically run over 10 weeks. Each week looks at a different question around faith and it is designed to create conversation. Everyone is welcome.

If you would like to become more orientated with us as a church, meet some of our pastors and chat with some of our team, then please join us for our next Newcomers’ Connect Party. These events happen at least twice a term, where we enjoy some amazing food, share a little of the story of our church and help you to consider how you might become more involved here.

We also invite you to stick for six, we don’t think you’ll fully experience all of who we are as a church, if you only come once. We invite you to stick around for six weeks to see if Central Vineyard is the kind of place you can call home!

OUR Story

Our Story
Our first gathering, February 2006

Our story starts back in November 2003 when Steve & Tammy Gee moved to Northampton with a passion to see a new church started. A church that would seek to connect with those who find themselves outside the usual reach of the local church, while seeking to demonstrate a radical commitment towards the poor and marginalised in the community.

The church officially launched in February 2006 with just five adults and three pre-schoolers, and after 10 years of a fairly nomadic existence, in July 2016, following some miraculous provision the church purchased 42 Sheep Street in the centre of Northampton. This led the church in to a season of significant growth and multiplication with the planting of three other church locations, functioning together as a multi-site church.

As the church continued to grow and multiply there was a growing sense that the way we were functioning as a church had reached a ceiling, and so in the spring of 2021 we began to reimagine what it would look like to transition from a model that was 'one church in multiple locations' towards what we now describe as 'a family of churches'.

We believe this change helps to simplify our structures, enables each church to function with more local autonomy, while remaining rooted in the conviction that we are better together than we are alone. Our commitment in remaining connected together as a family of churches, is also driven by a fresh vision for church planting, especially across the south east corner of the Midlands and beyond.

Locally we are working more intentionally with the Vineyard Churches that have been planted out of our church, as a family of churches, with a focus on seeing even more healthy churches planted, primarily across the South East corner of the Midlands and beyond.
