The Renewal of All Things
“Scattered Servants unleash the Church to bring life to the City” – Alan Scott
Our vision is to be a community following Jesus, joining God in the renewal of all things; for us this begins in our lives and the communities in which we live, work and play. We want to see our county, our homes, our workplaces and our local neighbourhoods becoming all that God created and intended them to be. We long for people not just to attend church, but to be the church. Recognising that God has placed within each of us gifts, passions and abilities to see God’s Kingdom come on earth, as it is in Heaven.
Our desire is to create a church environment that is both gathered and scattered. As we gather we meet to celebrate all that Jesus is doing in and through us. We are then empowered by the Holy Spirit and scattered to share and show the good news of His Kingdom and bring life wherever we find ourselves. Therefore our church doesn’t just exist for itself, it exists to declare the glory and heart of God to the world around us. Seeing people transformed into passionate, engaged followers of Jesus, where the places they inhabit thrive.
Re:store Northampton was registered as a charity by Central Vineyard in 2013, to act as an umbrella for a number of the projects run by the church to support those facing hardship and crisis in Northampton.
Through our various projects, we aim to give a ‘hand-up’ rather than just a ‘hand-out’ and seek to give individuals the opportunities to move forward into greater independence. These projects range from crisis support, providing emergency food to those suffering from unforeseen economic hardship, to longer term, practical and emotional support.
