If you are new to Central Vineyard, Welcome! We are a growing regional church, and we invite you to come as you are, whatever your background.
Sandra is the Founding Pastor of the church that was originally known as Raunds Community Church, which started as an branch of a nearby Baptist Church in Thrapston. In October 2019 Raunds Community Church merged with Central Vineyard and become a new location of our church.
As part of our coming together as churches it has enabled Sandra to step towards retirement and from September 2021 she will be passing the baton of leadership to Tom & Ashleigh Nicholson.
Tom & Ashleigh have been part of Central Vineyard for a number of years and have led a number of groups and ministries, while serving on a few different staff roles in the church. Before joining Central Vineyard, Tom was a Youth Pastor for a church in Northampton and for the last two and half years they've been the Site Pastors in Wellingborough.
They have two daughters and they are excited about moving to Raunds this summer, as they get ready to take on this new role.
