How to get connected at garden city.
Gathered + Scattered.
We believe the end goal of God’s Kingdom is not the church, but rather, all of creation set free and brought under the healing rule and reign of Jesus. The church is, of course, wrapped up in that pursuit, but rather than calling our city to come to us, what would it look like for us to be the church that goes to our city? With this in mind we are seeking to be a church that is both gathered and scattered.
We believe that as humans we were created to know and worship God. There is something powerful and significant that happens when people gather together to encounter God through worship, prayer, and engagement in the scriptures. His presence transforms our lives and imparts hope for us and for our city. Our aim in gathering regularly to worship is to grow in our relationship with God, to hear relevant teaching from the bible and to remind ourselves of all that is true and real in our world. Further, during these times of gathering together, we are equipped and empowered to step out and serve our city.
We are a people called to bring life to every space and every place in our city. Filled with the hope and life that comes from God’s Spirit, we will seek to bless and love Milton Keynes, and its residents, every day of the week. Through neighbours helping neighbours, through employees being the best employees they can be, through intentional outreach and through spontaneous conversations every day in every place. Rather than seeing ourselves as people who build great ministries, we see ourselves as missionaries who are commissioned to serve and build a great city.

the 4:32 Group.
"All the believers were one in heart and mind. No one claimed that any of their possessions was their own, but they shared everything they had." - Acts 4:32
The Garden City Vineyard 4:32 Group was created so that people at Garden City could express and meet needs – to be the church together in an online space, loving and serving one another. This is a closed group for those who relate to Garden City Vineyard in anyway. Please feel free to send comments, requests, updates and links to the Group that you think others might value. We hope you find it helpful.
