"When we started Foyle Vineyard in 2014, it was with a simple yet powerful dream - what would it look like for Jesus to have His way - in our lives, families, neighbourhoods and workplaces. How would our city and beyond be different if Jesus was given room to move?"

Why we are here
We exist to see Derry and the West as a place marked by hope....where people are flourishing as the Way of Jesus is established in lives and communities.
What are we for
Our vision is to bring Jesus and His way to those around us, in the places we live, work and play - loving those on the margins, healing the broken-hearted and empowering the powerless to live with possibility and purpose - restoring hope to our city and region.
Significance - living from value rather than for it
Jesus speaks to our identity and answers the deep question - am I of worth? We know our value to God and look for creative ways to show How deeply He values others
Humility - living as servants, laying our lives down
Jesus speaks to our need for belonging and invites us into a family that loves with generosity, showing kindness to others by serving, giving away not taking.
Authority - living out our call with courage
Jesus speaks to our need for purpose by calling us to partner with Him to bring His Way on the earth. We respond to the invitation of Jesus with faith, stepping courageously into all that He has, empowering others to do the same.
Presence - intentionally living in the way of Jesus
With the Spirit's power, we seek to put into practice the teachings and ministry of Jesus. As we do we are increasingly formed into His likeness. As a body, we seek to reflect the likeness of Jesus in how we love one another.
Encounter - extending the way of Jesus to others
Empowered by the Spirit, we lead others into an encounter with the Risen Jesus. We announce the good news that "He Is King!" in our everyday and to the people and places that He sends us.
"When we started Foyle Vineyard in the Autumn of 2014, it was with a simple yet powerful dream - what would it look like for Jesus to Have His Way - in our lives, families, neighbourhoods and workplaces. It's been quite the adventure and one we're so glad we said 'yes' to."
