Thank you for your interest in Garden City Vineyard, a new church plant coming soon to Milton Keynes. The vision for this new church has been forming in our hearts for a while, and we appreciate you investing your time to find out more about the launch of this church. As we enter this next phase, our intention from September is to start gathering a launch team, as we begin to lay some of the foundations for this new church.
The name Garden City is rooted in the story of the Bible, a story that starts in a Garden and ends in a Garden City. It’s the story of God rescuing and redeeming broken people and renewing broken cities, and we believe we're being called to plant a church that will embody this biblical narrative in every corner of the city.
We've also discovered it's a name that is synonymous with Milton Keynes' history and how, when this new city was first conceived, it was heavily influenced by the Garden City Movement of urban design. Fifty years later Milton Keynes really has become a 'city in a forest' and our sense is this name will be something of a prophetic statement, one that speaks about the kind of church we're called to be and the kind of role we are to play in the city.
Thank you for your interest in our journey, and we hope that this website gives you a glimpse of who we are and where we are heading. If this is something that excites you or if you sense God might be stirring your heart to be involved, please do message us via the live chat or contact page.
