We're a small and friendly church with a down-to-earth approach to our faith in Jesus.
But we're serious about the positive difference following Him has on our own lives & the impact it can have on our community, our city and our world. And since Jesus taught that actions speak louder than words, You'll find we're pretty active in providing all sorts of activities & events for our community.
We worship in the  fairly new St Mary's Church connected to the Vine community building. Our building is used for our projects during the week and worship on Sundays.
Our tradition is open evangelical with the emphasis that we expect the Holy Spirit to be active today.  We are relaxed in worship, especially our cafe church once a month with a worship band, coffee and cakes. We do still hold the LORD in high honour and reverence.
Many of our congregation are very involved during the week with the community projects and links with other local initiatives particularly focussing on children which we feel is our call from God. KidzKlub Bradford and Open the Book Bible Stories in schools are supported as well as our own Prime Time and First Fruits children's activities. The Vintage Vines elderly care is also central the heart of the Church.
