There are currently 130 Vineyard churches in the UK which are part of a growing movement of over 2500 churches worldwide. The Vineyard UK and Ireland is led by John & Debbie Wright with a leadership group. Each geographical area has oversight. Our Area Leaders in East Anglia are Mark and Louise Williams.
Craig and Hannah are accountable to both Mark and Louise Williams and also to the other Directors of Gateway Vineyard, currently Matt Stuart, Nikki Adlam, Paul Cracknell, Angela Greaves and John Squires. Craig and Hannah are responsible for the leadership of the church. Decision making happens in relationship with those connected to the area involved. Pastoral leadership is delegated to Life Group leaders for those they care for. Ministry team leaders are responsible for the areas they lead. Leaders within Gateway are accountable to Craig and Hannah and meet regularly with them.
We value SERVANT LEADERSHIP.
We believe that Christ has put significant leadership authority in the hands of the pastor and associates. We aim to exercise that authority with humility, selflessness, grace, care for the sheep, and a sincere desire to build up the Body of Christ. (Romans 12:9-10)
