We had the joy of started Central Vineyard in 2006, which grew over time to become a large church meeting across five services in four different locations. Whilst we were grateful for the lives impacted and numerical growth, what we longed to see was a movement of multiplication.
As we began to reimagine what multiplication could look like, we went from being defined as one church meeting in multiple places, to multiple churches functioning as one family. It was in the midst of this transition that we started to sense God's call on us personally to go again, so after 16 years of leading the Central Vineyard, in the summer of 2022 we resigned as the Lead Pastors and later that year relocated to Milton Keynes to church plant once again.
Transitioning to become more like a family has enabled us to simplify our structures, giving each church location more local identity, enabling us to go further than we'd previously imagined, whilst remaining convinced that we are better together than we are alone. Now as a family of churches we're aiming to raise up a generation of new leaders who are united around a shared mission and vision to see churches established across the NN and MK postcode area, rooted in our shared history, legacy and DNA.
Steve & Tammy Gee
Steve & Tammy have been in ministry together for over two decades. They planted their first church, Daventry Vineyard in their early 20's and went on to launch the Central Vineyard in 2006, which has since multiplied in to four unique churches. Whilst helping to steer our family of churches, they also serve the wider Vineyard Movement as Regional Leaders and live in Milton Keynes, where they are currently in the early stages of church planting.
