By joining a Group, you will grow in your faith, meet new people, build relationship and have fun ​in the process.


We have groups of all types that meet across the county. These groups are a great way to make new friends and build relationships. Our groups run on a termly basis, although we have some groups that you can join at any time, scroll down to see what is available.

We want each groups to offer the opportunity to meet with each others, deepen our faith and explore what it means to connect with God, grow as a family and make a difference. With this in mind groups will loosely fall into one of three streams:

Central Vineyard Presence Icon


Encounter God’s presence and grow deeper in relationship with him.

​‘Taste and see that the Lord is good, blessed is the one who takes refuge in him’ – ​Psalm 34:8

Central Vineyard Presence Icon


Meet new people, have fun and grow as a family and friends.​

​’Be devoted to one another in love. Honour one another above yourselves’ – ​​Romans 12:10

Central Vineyard Presence Icon


Make a difference, meet the needs of the city and see it transformed.

​’Seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you’ ​- Jeremiah 29:7


How do I start a group?

​If you are interested in exploring the idea of starting a Group then please fill out the form and we’ll be in touch!

All new groups start together at the beginning of each term and depending on the kind of group, run for either one term or a whole year. If you’re thinking about exploring starting a new group next term, please fill in the form as early as possible during the term before. This gives us time to get in touch and support you in the process of setting up a new group.

We offer all our leaders training, coaching, and support through our clustering system and want to see everyone grow in their potential and calling. If God has put a vision in your heart or if you’d like to speak with someone about what it means to lead a Group, we’d love to take some time to explore that with you.

When Do Groups Run?

We have 3 terms per year and groups run for 10 weeks during each term:

  • Term 1: 9th September – 17th November 2018
  • Term 2: 13th January – 23rd March 2019
  • Term 3: 6th May – 13th July 2019

Between term times there is normally a 5 to 6 weeks break, where group leader can take a rest and we host different training events for the whole church.

Why is there a Sign-up for some groups and not others?

If a group has spaces then the sign up button will allow you to join. If it says ‘closed’, this means that the group is full and reached it capacity.

What happens when a Group is full?

When a Group is full the ‘sign up for this group’ button will say closed, we would encourage you to look for another Group that you feel you could make a home in.

I’m not a member of Central Vineyard, is it okay to join Group?

Most of our Groups are aimed at building community within our church family. By joining a group you will be joining the community here at the church. Some Groups are open to bringing along your friends – these groups will often mention this in their description or just speak to the group leaders.

The Group I’m in isn’t for me, can I join another?

Yes, there is no pressure to remain in a Group you are already part of. You are free to sign up to any Group you would like, but please note that some Groups are age, life stage and gender focused.

Can I attend more than one Group?

Yes, you can sign up to as many Groups as you would like, but please be aware of others who may want to join – especially if there are not many remaining spaces in that group. You may also find it better to be fully committed to one Group, than half committed to two or three Groups.
