We are committed to calling those who follow Jesus to be lifelong learners – always learning and growing. Because we value every age and stage of development, we want to have training that reaches into the life of a person at every stage, to help them advance in spiritual, relational, and intellectual development as well as growth in leadership.
Our Equip courses are designed to carry our vision, encourage growth and impact your journey with Jesus. They works together with our Groups to form a crucial part of what we call 'discipleship' here at Central Vineyard. Equip courses run three times a year.

Hub is the Vineyard Churches leadership training programme, which happens in multiple locations all around the UK and Ireland.
We are called as a movement to preach the gospel, plant churches and transform society. Hub is designed to resource this vision by training pioneering leaders and church planters. Hub is for highly motivated, self-starting people who aspire to excellence in leadership and are exploring a life call to ministry.
TRAINING OVER 3 YEARS
Based around a three year curriculum, the aim of Hub is to train those who feel called to lifelong ministry, whether on church staff or in a voluntary capacity. Once you have applied to your local Hub centre, training will take place one evening per month and one day a term, with additional training happening through your local church.
THE AIM OF HUB
The aim of Hub training is:
1. To provide education and training.
2. To offer experience of pioneering ministry and leadership.
3. To develop the relevant skills, applicable to a wide range of church-planting and leadership settings.
A Hub session would include excellent pre-recorded teaching with clear learning outcomes and facilitated group discussion during the evening. You’d reflect on what you’re learning then apply that to your leadership during the following month.
Training material and curriculum is identical across each Hub location, so you can be assured of the same course content regardless of your geography.
Additionally, Hub Intensive Days happen once per term, where we gather all the local Hubs together for a day of live teaching.
Central Vineyard acts as hosts for one of the Hub locations, students can enrol on a termly basis. For more details and to determine if Hub is for you please contact Paul Veal.
Through Vineyard Institute you will be trained with high quality theological education, integrated with spiritual transformation so that you are prepared for Kingdom work at any level in the church and in the world.
Vineyard Institute, a global education provider, was created to equip the people of God to pursue the call to go out into the world as workers of the harvest, whether that calling is a pastor, ministry leader, church planter, missionary or a disciple in the workplace and community.
If you are interested in developing your leadership through theological, Biblical and practical application, then Vineyard Institute is for you.
Students can study at their own pace and without necessarily aiming to complete a qualification. However, there is also the option to build a qualification by accumulating credits in specific course areas. Each module is worth one credit and equates to approximately 45 hours of study. There are a variety of awards on offer including a 5-credit Kingdom Theology award, a 15-credit Certificate in Biblical Leadership and an Advanced Certificate of 30 credits.
There are two different programmes available for UK and Ireland students. If you’re already a Hub student or planning to become one then Hub+ is the one for you. If not, take a look at our Training for Everyone programme, which is open to everyone in the Vineyard in the United Kingdom and Ireland.
