What is Compassion?


Compassion is at the heart of the Vineyard Church family, and you are invited in. Together we look for every day opportunities to see the love and life of Jesus available to every person in and every part of the Lagan Valley. 

 

Another successful year of Love Lagan Valley at Christmas!

Thank you to every person who donated their time, resources, and finances to Love LV, and also to those who prayed for every person receiving one of our gifts this year. Your generosity has meant the world to so many in our local community!

Two of our charity partners, Prison Fellowship Northern Ireland (PFNI) and Women’s Aid, have sent us thank you letters full of stories from those who received our gifts. Each letter is linked above, and we would love for you to read them!

 

The last Sunday of every month is Foodbank Sunday!

During Foodbank Sunday, we set aside some intentional time for our friends at the Lisburn Foodbank and the important work they do through sharing stories and collecting food donations. 

You can find an updated list of urgent needs for the foodbank on their website.

 

Everyone is welcome to join in with community at Lagan Valley Vineyard!

VOLUNTEER WITH COMPASSION

Throughout the year, we create environments for you to serve our community in the most practical and creative ways. Everyone gets to join in with home and garden makeovers, giving generously, helping people with food and fuel needs, connecting people with partner organisations, and by doing what we do best – conversation and prayer. 

Compassion Volunteers give time and skills to help people in their homes or local communities. When we do, we learn about what God’s love looks like in action. We call this “seeing God’s Kingdom come” around us. When the church helps with their hands, it often helps others experience the love and life of Jesus in a meaningful way. Jesus’ shows His love through the church being generous and proactive with honest lives. 

There are incredible stories of people finding hope, healing, community, health and even employment and release from debt or fear through the power of the Holy Spirit. It all starts when we help. How amazing that one or two hours of your time could change a life in a remarkable way!

We are currently in need of people to serve.
We serve with a ‘go your own pace’ mentality. You’ll be part of a pair or a larger team and be given good understanding and support from Yvette or Regina in Compassion LVV.
