This means all Vine groups, services, social activities and gatherings and most community outreach activities are being suspended until further notice.  

What does this mean in practice

Thank you for the efforts you put in as a volunteer or member of staff.
We appreciate the uncertainty of these times and value your commitment and flexibility as we try to provide a proportionate response while still being able to serve those that need it.

Information on streamed service and virtual mid week meetings has been circulated.  If you wish to find out more please see the coronavirus information on the home page and contact us.

We are one church, we are a family.  We are all positioned to provide support, connection, reassurance and prayer for each other. 

If you are unwell in any way, please do let us know so we can pray for you. We may not always be able to visit in person at this time, but we will be in touch by phone to chat, pray and help you trust and draw on God.

Assist one-to-one support.

The service will continue to operate but will primarily operate through non-contact or extremely limited contact operating procedures with Volunteers being encouraged to telephone clients.  Volunteers will not enter clients homes as standard practice.
We continue to closely monitoring the official government guidance as well as current best practice and will alter our approach further as this changes.

 

Current Action being taken by by The Vine

We will…

  • Send instructions to all staff members and volunteers on good personal hygiene practices
  • Instruct all home visitors to check the person they are visiting is not self isolating before visiting and not to enter the property
  • Ask everyone who exhibits any cold or flu like symptoms or Coronavirus specific symptoms to follow the current advice.
  • Regularly update our decision on services, meetings and operational activities as guidance is received.
  • Regularly update our advice to you, the latest of which will always be available at http://bit.ly/vinecoronavirus 

 

Taking care of ourselves

We  encourage you to use the official government website(s) as the official source of advice and information.

Further help on self isolation can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-stay-at-home-guidance

Again we would also request that you inform us of this so that we can support you both in prayer and if necessary in other ways this is of course at your discretion if you wish to inform us or not.

We will continue to update our approach as the situation changes via our website : http://bit.ly/vinecoronavirus

The Vine's wider response

We will continue to pray for every individual affected in any way by this virus and are thankful for the Church who is able to rise up in these situations to bring hope, peace and care in times of fear. We are called to love our neighbours including the least in our society and we will look how we can do this in a sensible and practical way.  

The Church is in some ways uniquely positioned to be of service at this time.

We have met today with leaders of the Other churches in the village, the Parish Council and key individuals who are instrumental in community actives within the villages to structure a support mechanism during this time.  Elements of this will operate under the Assist framework. The role of this will be predominantly co-ordination, communication and some physical assistance.

If you have Facebook I would encourage you to view the post on the Vine's Facebook page or the Community page for the villages.   
The aim of the group is to provide a safety net for those self isolating who can not rely on friends, neighbours  or family.  

To facilitate this there is facebook group to help with co-ordination and communication.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/194065735349903/?ref=share

The first activity is a leaflet drop if you are able to volunteer for this or more please contact us.

As a church leadership team we love you, are praying for you and we know that God is with us all.  Can I encourage you all to join the online sessions we are hosting.

The end of one season and the start of an adventure. 

Around fifteen years ago the Vine Community Church was started.  Serving Cherry Willingham, Fiskerton and Reepham.  Originally meeting in Village halls of those places.  Lots of things have happened in those fifteen years. For one,  our youngest who could only crawl backwards when the Vine launched can now walk as well as any fifteen year old.  This weekend (14th October 2018) sees the founding pastors of the Vine. Veronica and Dave Podbury step down. It is a time that we look back on the amazing times we have had under their tenure.  Starting Carols on the Green, taking on the Village Library, providing one-to-one support for people struggling with life or mental illness to name but three. 

Picking up the reigns as the new ‘leaders’ is an exciting prospect (I am spelling exciting  -S C A R Y) and promises to be a great new adventure.  

Some things will undoubtedly change: the Youth Group, for example, has been handed over to the experts.  Other things will stay the same:  the Values of the Vine will not change and it will continue to be a place that seeks to connect people with God and to come alongside those who need help in a relevant, welcoming and authentic way. 

As Jenny and I start this adventure we would welcome you saying ‘Hi’ if you are in the villages.

So who are we?

Well, I am Darren and for four days a week I work for a large software company and Jenny (we’ve been married for over 20 years) runs the Assist service if you don’t know what that is, check out the link. We have lived in Cherry for the last fifteen years.  If you want to know more than that come and meet us some time. 

Until then we are excited at the honour we have been given of serving the Vine and the villages and surrounding areas.

Vine Life

A collection of the latest news and articles from The Vine

  • Two is better than one, three are better still

    During this time of ‘lockdown’, I have found my life patterns have changed. I have had time to do and to watch things that I would not normally. One thing I watched was an online video where they placed two strangers in a room and asked them to give their first impressions of each other, to the camera in front of the other person. The other person then told their life story.  It was a social experiment about how our preconceptions and first impressions affect who we engage with, who we speak too, who we even acknowledge in the street. 

    The current COVID-19 situation has left many people lonely and isolated.  It has meant people that ordinarily would be self-sufficient and able to get on with life on their own, needing the help of others to do basic things like getting food or collecting medicine.

    It has also caused a change in the way lots of people have acted in response.  This time last year, who would have imagined the sheer number of people who would volunteer to help in the response to this situation either through local and national volunteering initiatives or just by pushing a note through neighbours doors saying ‘I’m here can I help?’.  Who would have imagined that as you walk down the road almost everyone you meet acknowledges you, says ‘hello’ or asks if you are ok? Who would have thought that we would stand out clapping for our health and support workers when normally we would give them no thought? 

    stringloveknot

    Our world seems to have changed, I wonder how many preconceptions have had to be put aside as neighbours of different generations help each other or a volunteer who you have never met delivers medicine or calls for a chat. 

    In Ecclesiastes 4: it says 9 Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. 10 If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble. 11 Likewise, two people lying close together can keep each other warm. But how can one be warm alone? 12 A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken.

    How true these words are.  It is better to go through life together, with each other and for those of us that believe, with God.   I hope and pray that when life returns to more like normal, whatever that is, we keep some of these changes, that we, as a society continue to put aside our preconceptions and continue to care.  Two are better off than one, for they can help each other, succeed.
