Our heart is for people in Inverclyde and on the West Coast of Scotland to encounter Jesus in life changing ways
Inverclyde Vineyard is a brand new church for the Inverclyde area starting 2019. Our hope is that this will be a community where people encounter Jesus in life changing ways. Our heart is to grow a welcoming, fun and relevant church that is excited about seeing Inverclyde and the surrounding area flourish as we serve and love those around us.
We see a church of second chances, where all we do is grace-filled and where hope can be restored. A church that is passionate and wholehearted in worship, with new songs rising up. A church that is Spirit-filled and where everyone can play their part as we step out in faith on this adventure together.
You may be exploring faith for the first time or you may have been to church before - whatever your background if you’d like to find out more we would love to hear from you! Come to one of our Connect Sunday gatherings or checkout our Get Involved page now, for information about how you join in with this new church community.
Don & Abi Thomas
The region of Inverclyde is on the West Coast of Scotland situated about 30 minutes drive from Glasgow. It is an area of incredible natural beauty and has a total population of around 80,000 people.
Don and Abi Thomas met studying Theology at the University of Aberdeen in 2009. After graduating in 2013 they got married and relocated to Inverurie in Aberdeenshire to be part of the team launching a new site location for Catalyst Vineyard Church. They are now excited to have moved to Inverclyde as they follow God’s call to start up Inverclyde Vineyard church. They love music, spending time with others, hanging out in coffee shops, exploring new places in Scotland, and going on adventures with their son.
We are affiliated to Vineyard Churches UK & Ireland. There are around 120 Vineyard churches nationally and 2,500 in 95 countries around the world. You can find out more about the Vineyard movement here.
We are part of the ‘21 by 21’ vision to see 21 new churches started in Scotland by 2021.
