Updates from Phil Hicks (Project Manager) about Vineyard House - the purchase, STEPS (raising the money), its redevelopment and then commissioning for kingdom ministry.
The Vision for STEPS 2017: Vineyard House. The Big Idea is to use these buildings, Vineyard House and HMC, to release compassion and worship in Headingley and across Leeds.
The Rocks are the main things that will be started in the first couple of years and will be what guides the design and renovations.
A vision such as this costs money. So we have an opportunity to give. This is not about our regular giving – that is not affected by STEPS, it carries on as before and is your grateful response to the Lord for his generosity and love for you.
You can give in three ways: financially, in service, in prayer.
Names are important. They tell a bit of a story about a place and they become associated with the purposes and activities that take place (and vice versa).
These timings will hopefully give you an idea of what to expect along the way.
For those of you who have joined us more recently we thought you'd be interested to know the story of how we've got to this point in our journey.
We have thought about some of the questions that you might have and tried to answer them here. We value openness and accountability so if you have a question please do get in touch.
David looks into Isaiah 61 to find a dazzling invitation is made to those in pain and poverty - and inspiration as we seek to obey God in STEPS 2017.
David and Alison introduce STEPS 2017 with our story so far and our vision for the future.
