In His High Priestly prayer in John 17, Jesus prayed that His church would be one, that the world would know that the Father sent Him. Unity is key to the advance of the Kingdom - it takes the whole church to reach the whole city. Therefore, as part of the B1 group of churches in Taunton, we are committed to deepening unity, towards the transformation of our community, for the glory of God. Follow our journey as we meet together regularly to explore the oneness God has designed us for in Taunton. Here, Ian Williams, from Riviera Life Church, speaks at our September 2018 Sunday evening gathering at North Street Congregational Church on God doing a new thing in our town

September 2018 is an exciting month in the life of our church as we prepare for our participation in a structured, community engagement event - the ROC Conversation Taunton Deane - when we will be partnering with ROC, other churches, local organisations and people of good will to celebrate all that is good about our town and to identify how we can work together to make it even better. We believe that God's church is to be at the forefront of the redemption of communities, but what does a redeemed community look like? Join us as we explore the marks of a redeemed community from the book of Isaiah.

Miroslav Volf recognised that the Christian faith, and the work of Christ, has 'an inalienable public dimension'. By that he meant that faith is not just to be lived out in private, but to be concerned with 'responsible shaping of our common life and common world'. Join us for the second of two series exploring the two central modes of Christian public engagement - the second being how we are to engage with commitment, conviction and courage with some of the specific matters of public significance in today's society

The Bible is full of paradoxes...apparent contradictions which conceal profound truths about God and how the people of God are meant to live in the city. None more so than in the story of the birth of Jesus Christ and in the person of Jesus Himself. Join us this advent season as we look again in awe and wonder back to the first advent of Jesus, and forward to His second advent, and discover in the midst of paradox the Person and the power central to our faith

Compassion is the currency of the Kingdom of God, the cry of God over our communities for the people of God to hear and respond to. Join us for Compassion Sunday 2017 as we explore God's heart for the poor, the broken, the stranger, the downcast, the bound and the hungry, and how God is calling each of us at the Vineyard to use our passions and talents to serve our town through compassion

Many times in the Bible, Jesus called ordinary men and women to follow Him, not least when the resurrected Christ met and restored Peter on a beach at the end of John chapter 21. Peter in turn went on to instruct the church on what it means to be a community that lives out the hope and power of the resurrection in the world today. Journey with us as we explore, from the books of 1 & 2 Peter, what it means to follow the resurrected Christ, and to be a resurrected people, in the city today

C.S Lewis once wrote that 'the Christians who did most for the present world were just those who thought most of the next'.

Something remarkable happens when the power of a greater affection motivates the hearts of the church in the city... when a people, captured afresh by the love and grace of Jesus that drives out all other idols, begin to live for the fame of His name in the city. Join us as we journey with David White over our Summer 2017 Going Deeper weekend and discover again the power for, and source of, effective mission.

 

The book of Daniel is not just a book of prophecy, dreams, visions and dramatic storylines, but an instruction manual for how we, as Christians, should live in the city. Join with us as we explore how we are to shape the culture of the city without compromising our holy lifestyles.

 

The Bible clearly shows us God's outrageous heart of grace, mercy and compassion for a confused and desperate world. So, how should this truth cause us to respond as we reflect on our own heart attitudes towards those around us who don't yet know Him? Journey with us through the book of Jonah, as we discover how one man's life, given in obedience to the one true God, can transform one city.
