What's the vision?
We want to see people from all walks of life encountering Jesus and following Him. Jesus loves the poor, the rich, the doing OK, the lonely, the marginalised, the successful, those rejected in society. Everyone.
Our desire is to see people discovering the dream Jesus has for their lives. As we move towards this dream, we go from a place of asking God to bless our goals, to asking Him how we can get involved in His plans. Our questions change as we start to ask; “what are you up to in my workplace?” “where are you moving in this relationship?” “what are you doing around me that I can partner with?” “what have you made me to be and to do?”
It is our belief that Jesus has a wonderful, beautiful and outrageous dream for the city of Edinburgh. As a community we want to join in with what He is up to in our families, our neighbourhoods and communities. God is offering His unconditional love for us to enjoy freely and we want to share that love with the city.
In short, we want to see people encountering Jesus and following him to love, serve and give life to the city of Edinburgh.
What is the Vineyard?
The Vineyard Movement is a worldwide network of over 2,500 churches, led in its earliest years by the late John Wimber.
The Vineyard Movement is committed to seeing each generation reached by the power of the Gospel. With a view to embrace integrity in Christian character, along with the activity of the Holy Spirit, each Vineyard church seeks to be an outpost of God’s compassionate love in a broken world.
The genetic make up (the DNA) of the Vineyard significantly influences who we are and what we prioritise. To hear more you can go to the Vineyard UK and Ireland website.
