of Jan 2019 update

West Suffolk Vineyard Church is a growing community of 300 adults and children,
gathering from Bury St Edmunds and across West Suffolk.

From our beginning in the year 2000 we have had to gather to worship in a number of locations. We started off in the Athenaeum then quickly moved to the Corn Exchange (before its conversion) before settling for a few years in St Louis Middle School. As we gathered people and grew we moved to St James Middle School in 2005. As people joined us and we saw the space filling up we moved, in 2009, to the largest space we could find in Bury St Edmunds that allowed for a Sunday worship meeting with adjoining rooms for our children and youth to meet; King Edward VI School's lower hall. We are still there on Sunday mornings - do come and join us.

We want to continue to build a vibrant, lively community of people who are passionate about knowing Jesus and making him known. We are thankful to God for lives changed, families healed, visions cast, dreams realised and churches planted. It has always been our heart's desire to do all this in a home of our own; our own space for Sunday worship gatherings and facilities for the rest of the week.  In 2016 this opportunity arose.

A bigger and better Sunday venue to help us gather.

Increased capacity with room to grow.

Legacy; a permanent base on which to build.

Opportunity to expand ministry options.

A more visible community presence.

In 2016 God led us to a warehouse and office at 28 Northern Way, leading us to an opportunity to increase our impact and influence our local community. We invited everyone in church to consider this and to consider investing in God's kingdom in this way. We asked for pledges and gifts to see if we could purchase the building and refurbish the warehouse and office block. There was an overwhelming "Yes!" as we had pledges enough to buy the building and make a start on refurbishment. Throughout 2016 we applied for planning permission to convert the building into a place of worship. Eventually we got a "Yes" for that too, so we embarked on buying the building.
