We hope you enjoy exploring hopeoxford.org
There is something for everyone.
This is our clothes and equipment resource for newborns to 10s. Normally on Mondays, it’s free with a referral, and on Thursday it’s a shop. Wednesdays are for people who’d like to volunteer.

Join us on Sundays
Before lockdown, we alternated between meeting in person and online. Since Jan 2021, we have changed in person gatherings to face-to-face activities on zoom, where we can invite new friends.

This is a collective ‘thank you’ from the people of Oxford, to Intensive Care Staff and Critical Workers. 100 meals (6 days a week) are delivered to the JR, & we have plans to increase the reach of this gratitude project to Critical Workers across Oxfordshire.

We’re open, but mostly behind closed doors!
We have started back with our monthly toddler group, Bags of Fun, Sunday Gatherings including Simply Worship, Alpha course and Life Groups, but it’s all online for the moment.
However, Small Steps is open for referrals (Mondays) and in small numbers we can continue with volunteers (Wednesdays) and we are in the process of adjusting how we provide this valuable resource to the community. The Charity Shop (Thursdays) is currently closed, which will have an impact. Please see the Small Steps page for the Lockdown Update (2021).

Thank you for visiting Hope Vineyard’s website.
“Hope Vineyard is a new charity and church that began in 2017 when we moved from Nottingham to Oxford, a city we love full of diversity and colour.
We hoped to gather a group of people who valued compassion, justice, generosity, and keen to encourage each other to live unhurried lives full of purpose and meaning. We’re excited that Hope Vineyard is growing to become a community that practices living in this way.
Our inspiration is Jesus, but you are invited to be a part of things whether you know anything about Jesus or not. There are no barriers to you finding home with us. Regardless of your age, background, questions or doubts; if you’re curious about the idea of a God who cares and has plans for you or you simply want to be part of making a difference in your community, then get in touch.
We’d love to hear from you.”
Josh and Katie (Leaders, Hope Vineyard, est.2017)

Our new venue
In 2018, we had nowhere to run our Mother’s Day pampering event, and so we approached Templars Square, and they said yes!
Having returned each term to do similar pop-up stalls, we’ve now signed a lease on an incredible space, and in the summer of 2020 we moved in!
