Colchester Vineyard is a bunch of people who like to be useful. It’s an open community, but at its heart is a spirituality – the down-to-earth kind that Jesus did. And that was by giving and forgiving, healing and rescuing.

Every Wednesday at 20:00 we’re hosting online a time of quiet centring when we can learn to allow room in our heads for silence and peace. We have simple centring exercises to help this work, and all is done in the context of Jesus, ‘Emmanuel’ — God with us.

On Sundays at 14:30 we gather online to chat about ideas and issues that effect us all. Everyone’s free to share their thoughts and there are no ‘right’ answers, but there’s always the emphasis on remaining positive and constructive.

Words for Life

We all value certainty, especially at a time when things change rapidly. For most of us, certainty means being in control. But lately, everyone’s realised that we’re not in control. So is there another kind of certainty that could  give a surer foundation for our being? That won’t evaporate when disease, disappointment or loss happen? This is a really good time to think differently, and here are a few thoughts on doing that.
