In this talk we look at how there are some serious misunderstandings when it comes to worship and especially ‘sung’ worship and then using Psalm 95 look at how we as a Vineyard Church value the following it comes to being a worshipping community…


You are what you love


A life of worship image

It is what we ultimately love that determines how we live: What we want to do, our longings and desires. Our ultimate love is what we worship. What we ultimately love, ultimately changes us, forms our identity and directs our thoughts and actions, our responses and attitudes.

Put another way, “You are what you love”.

The Generous Church

Our God is an extravagant giver. If we are to follow in His footsteps, then generosity is one of the key ways the Church should stand out from society. In this final part, Nathan challenges us to step out out of our comfort zones and be prepared to give not just willingly, but hilariously generously.

The Grace of Giving

How do we have a healthy attitude towards money? In this talk Nick looks at a bunch of churches that were known for their generosity. How can we let grace flow from God to others? Can our giving really make a difference?

The Gift of Grace

In this, the first in our three-part series on grace, Nick looks at the grace God has for us. Whilst so many things in life we have to work hard for, God’s grace is one thing we can’t earn – and we don’t need to! Yet, this crucial element of our faith is so often and so easily forgotten. With a true understanding of grace in place, how in turn might our attitude towards giving to others change?

Making Disciples of King Jesus

Jesus told his followers to, “Go and make disciples of all nations…teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.” In this talk Vicki looks at how we make disciples in Coventry Vineyard and why it is a core value.
