WHO ARE FALMOUTH VINEYARD?
Falmouth Vineyard is a new church plant in Falmouth led by Nathan & Ruth Gilbert. We are affiliated to Vineyard Churches UK & Ireland and we are so excited to join in with what God is already doing in Falmouth. If you would like to hear more about our vision for the church or where we are meeting this week you can email us email@example.com.
We have always loved Cornwall. Ruth grew up in Falmouth and Nathan in Helston and both moved away to go to University. In 2008 we moved from Nottingham to Cardiff, as part of a team who planted Cardiff Vineyard. Nathan, after 10 years in IT, left to focus full time on the role of associate pastor at Cardiff Vineyard. Ruth works part time as a GP and we have 3 children so life is a bit hectic!
Our heart is, and always has been, to see the wonderful nation of Cornwall set on fire for Jesus. Early in 2017 we knew God was calling us back home, to start a new Vineyard Church in Falmouth. We are so excited to establish a community that loves Jesus and loves Falmouth.
WHY START A NEW CHURCH?
We passionately believe that the local church is the hope of the world because the purpose of the local church is to introduce Jesus to everyone it meets. We have come alive in our faith as we've got to know Jesus more and more in the church called the Vineyard. It feels like home to us. We love the worship, the expectation that God will be with us in our meetings. We love the laid back, come as you are, dress in what you like environments where we get to be honest and real with each other. We love the focus on compassion and justice that says the Kingdom of God isn't just Jesus' favourite sermon or an abstract theology, but it is the everyday actions of a community who love and serve the town, selflessly and sacrificially. Finally, we love the fact it is a community where you are welcome. You are so welcome! Why not come and explore who Jesus is, why He died, what the impact of Him coming back to life again is to us here and now in Kernow.
Vineyard Churches UK and Ireland exists to participate in the advancement of the Kingdom of God through the work of local Vineyard churches that communicate the Gospel of Jesus Christ in word and practise.
