God is in the
transformation business
and we get to join in!

Our Vision + Purpose

We are a people carrying the mandate of Isaiah 61, where the Spirit of God is upon us to bring transformation. We want to see multiple thriving sites across London with Worship, Formation and Mission at their core. We believe that God is in the transformation business and we get to join in!

We are a community passionately pursuing God’s heart for our city through our ordinary everyday lives. We are Vineyard 61 Church, on mission to be a reflection of the heart and mind of God for a city in need of good news.

AUTHENTICITY

It’s easy to fake it, but we choose to be real with God and each other. Honesty and vulnerability create space for Jesus to meet and challenge us, as well as build deep, trusting relationships.

EXPECTANCY

We know the King is here. Therefore, we expect His miraculous power, intimate presence and answers to prayer at any moment! 

HONOUR

Where there’s honour, people flourish. We recognise that everyone is valuable and empower each other to reach our God-given potential.

GENEROSITY

Lives are changed through generosity. God is extravagantly generous and as a reflection of Him we joyfully give our time, talents and finances.

FUN

We laugh easily and often, not taking ourselves too seriously! Having fun lifts burdens breaks down barriers and creates connection.

Our Story

Our journey began in 2015 with a small group of people meeting in a home with a vision to start a church that would bring life to London. We have grown to become the multisite church that we are today, with three physical sites meeting in Balham, Battersea and West Side.

If you’re looking for a church to call home, we would love to invite you to join us as we seek to bring transformation to our city. There are loads of ways to get involved at V61, whether that’s Sunday services, midweek groups, compassion projects, joining a team or coming along to one of our many sports or social events.

You are so welcome here and we’re looking forward to getting to know you! With love, Steve & Viv (Lead Pastors)
