Along with the rest of the world, we experienced lockdown thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic! In late 2020 Vinelife said goodbye to the Anchor and purchased the Army Reserve Centre in Ardwick Green, with the intention of it becoming a home for our church family and a place to serve the city. Sadly this project became no longer feasible for us, and we put the building on the market with a sale due to complete in 2023.In 2021, Phil and then later, Sarah, resigned their roles with Vinelife, and we ended our association with Jesus Culture.
After a brief period with Santino Hamberis as Interim Senior Leader, a Core Leadership Team was commissioned in September 2022 to lead Vinelife into the future. You can find out more about the CLT over on the team page
In 2023 we began to explore what it could look like to be part of the Pioneer
network of churches and are moving towards a decision on this by early 2024.
