New Here?


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 community 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. The church officially launched in February 2006 with a team made up of just five adults and three pre-schoolers.

 After 10 years of steady growth and a fairly nomadic existence, in July 2016, following some miraculous provision, we purchased 42 Sheep Street in the centre of Northampton. This led us in to a season of significant growth and multiplication with a need to multiply services in Northampton and the eventual planting of three other church locations, in Kettering, Wellingborough and Raunds, functioning together as a multi-site church.



As things continued to grow there was a sense that we had reach our ceiling, and so in 2021 we began to reimagine what it would look like to transition our multi-site structure, from that of 'one church in multiple locations' to what we now describe as 'a family of churches'. As a result in April our Kettering site become the Kettering Vineyard, and in October this was followed by our Wellingborough and Raunds sites merging together to form what is now the Nene Valley Vineyard. Then in late 2022 we will be launching our next church, the Garden City Vineyard in Milton Keynes.

We believe this change has helped to simplify our structure, its enabled each church to function with more local autonomy, while remaining rooted in the conviction that we are better together than we are alone. All with a fresh vision for church planting, especially across the south east corner of the Midlands and beyond.
