April at Vineyard
We live in Cumbria, so we know to be cautious around saying when winter has officially past, we still may have snow! But we agree with Song Of Solomon chapter 2 "For the winter is past, the rain is over and gone. The flowers are springing up and the time of the singing of birds has come. Yes, spring is here. The leaves are coming out, and the grapevines are in blossom.” So we declare Springtime over this city, this region, over our community, over our hearts. Have a read through the email and you will see how we are seeking to live out the vision of seeing this region come alive. As a community we are on an adventure through the book of Acts in the bible, where we are not just wanting to teach the book but to live the book. We are thrilled to have Helen (its springtime) Winter speaking this Sunday and we welcome the mighty Dave Ellershaw and team to lead worship.
As we seek to be inwardly strong and outwardly focused we encourage you to connect with a clan (see below for details) and Easter is coming so in keeping with tradition we will be gathering at the Hub for a short time and then heading out to bless the city. (See details below.)
Andy & Rho
On Easter we gather at 10:30am for a shorter time for coffee and Hot cross buns, then a brief time all together before we head out to bless either friends, neighbours or into the city centre. We have always seen a beautiful response from people. Sometimes its simply giving away chocolate, other times we get to pray for people and talk about Jesus.
power hour continues!
Power Hour - Every Sunday except the 2nd week of the month
Our Power Hour of Prayer from 7.45pm tie 8.45pm in the Mixing Room, come for coffee at 7:30pm
We are excited about Powerhour continuing. We always want to keep things fresh so we will continue to gather and reassess at Easter. Come join us in hearing His heart for our Vineyard community, the communities we are apart of and beyond!

It’s always been part of our DNA and vision here at Carlisle Vineyard to be a church of small groups and not just a church with small groups.
Our “Open House” Clans season began in March - and it’s been fun watching those involved begin to grow deeper relationships already both with each other and with God. These continue for the weeks up until Easter enabling everyone to “come and see” different Clans each week until you find one that hopefully you can feel "at home" and can begin to journey together with longer term after Easter. It’s not too late to join in....
For now, the Clan leaders and their days/times are as follows:
Alison Wright, Helen Winter, Lucy Belton, Chloe Wallace
Vineyard Hub, Lorne Street, Denton Holme, Carlisle
Jos and Abi Askew (term-time only, limited space available)
Woodlands, Colt Close, Ivegill, Cumbria, CA4 0NB
The mighty Phil & Laura Askew help us to bless our city once a month (the second Saturday of the month from 10am-1pm) through a project called Recreate.
This is a fantastic way to join in with community as we help those in our city combat loneliness and despair by helping to make their house a home!
The month of March we are working towards assisting an amazing lady in the city. Due to the nature of their changing circumstances sometimes advance planning is not possible. Whatever happens if your up for joining the revolution of love meet us at the Hub for 10am 9th March.
Please contact Phil and Laura for more details!
Term time only 7:30-9 at Steve and Tabs house.

GIVING TOWARDS THE LIFE OF CARLISLE VINEYARD CHURCH…
We truly believe that the Father calls each of us to live lives of generosity. We are blessed to be a blessing. We are inviting you to contribute towards the story at Carlisle Vineyard. We are a charity which is entirely supported by generous and sacrificial giving. If Carlisle Vineyard is home (i.e. you come regularly to our activities) - we encourage you to tithe towards the costs of the life of our community but also as we seek to be a blessing to our city! If you’re interested in what that word ‘tithe’ means and is - check out the recent talk below.
If you’d like to hear our take on what giving looks like at Carlisle Vineyard - listen in to a recent talk by click to the left.
To set up your direct debit for regular giving, click the link to the right. If you are a UK Tax Payer, we can claim back 25% extra on top of your regular giving through the Gift Aid scheme.
The Encouragement Shed Van is available for those aged 25 and over to book to bless your neighbours and the city. If you would like to enquire about booking the van, please complete the form below...

Because of this, in the coming weeks door codes will be changed and only given to those ministry leaders who will open and close the building.
