Leeds Vineyard is part of a national network of Vineyard churches in the UK and Ireland, and part of the international Vineyard movement.
Vineyard Churches UK & Ireland was formed for the purpose of joining together churches who hold common values and practices, and, first and foremost, it is a conservative evangelical movement. It is governed by a Council through a number of Task Forces, including a Board of Trustees, which give oversight to the pastors of existing churches and facilitates widespread church planting.
The major part of its function is to be an organisation that gives, helps, serves and strengthens our churches. As you’ve often heard it said, ‘our aim in Vineyard Churches UK & Ireland is to do all we can to help you become all that you can in Christ...’ We’re thoroughly committed to the view that this can only be achieved through the building and sustaining of strong relationships among us based on love, openness and trust.
Our National Directors are John & Eleanor Mumford (right); together they worked for nearly two years with John Wimber on the staff of the Anaheim Vineyard in California before planting the SW London Vineyard in 1987. They handed over the leadership of that church in 2008 in order to concentrate more upon the oversight and development of the Vineyard movement, both nationally and internationally.
