Why should I become a member?
Members are those who say 'We're part of the team'. They are passionate about growing as disciples and disciple makers, and they are team players in our church family. Members have committed to Grace Vineyard being their church home, to help it grow and flourish in its mission.
How do I become a member?
To become a member of Grace Vineyard, people attend a two night course where our vision, values and systems are explained. At the end of the second of the two evenings, there will be an opportunity to sign up to become a Grace Vineyard member.
