Helping the poor "out there" is meaningless if we are not helping the poor "in here". We felt very clearly that, as a church, we need to provide first for the poor among us. Jesus said that we would always have the poor among us (John 12:8), but we also know that we are blessed and able to provide for those among us:

Deuteronomy 15:4 However, there need be no poor people among you, for in the land the Lord your God is giving you to possess as your inheritance, he will richly bless you,

Jesus taught that, whatever we did for the least of of brothers and sisters (in the church), we do for him (Matt 25:40). There are many organisations that serve the poor globally, and that is a good thing. But for us personally, we are called to serve the poor among us. We need to see the whites of the eyes of the people we are helping, in other words serving the poor, for us, flows out of relationship.

Once we have cared for the needs within our church, we take care of the needs of those we are reaching out to within the community.

We take up a special offering once a month and stock our pantry at the Vineyard Centre. Papa's Pantry is open on Fridays between 2 and 4 pm, and people in our church can come and get a bag of groceries for the princely sum of £1. This is private, confidential, and by appointment only. You can contact Jeanette or Rachel at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to set up an appointment.

A Place To Belong

If you are looking for a church and want to find out if the Vineyard is the right place for you, or if you want to know more about the Vineyard, join us for an evening with some of the leaders. We will share a brief history of the Vineyard, our own story as a church in Yeovil, and our vision for the future. Contact us
