Make a Difference
What Can I do?
Everyone is gifted, has skills, and something to offer.
Life is best enjoyed when we use our strengths, try new things out and contribute to the good of the whole.
We’re excited about you helping us make a difference to Oxford and beyond.

We have more energy to serve if we enjoy what we’re doing, which means it helps for us to know a little about you.

We think Hope Vineyard is a good thing and we’d like our friends to discover that too. With social events, giving practical support, and exploring faith in God, there is a place for everyone.
Who do you know that might be interested?
There is no central Vineyard fund, and we are entirely funded by the generosity of people who call Hope Vineyard their home. There will never be a place for manipulation or giving out of compulsion or fear. Giving is never required of anyone who wants to get involved. We believe God extends an invitation to join him in expressing his abundant generosity.
‘The Giving Adventure’ booklet explains our inspiration for generosity and why we give to the local church.
For regular and one-off gifts to Hope Vineyard Oxford, here’s the link to our secure donate page:
Every Tuesday, we gather online to pray for the major justice issues of our time, such as the climate emergency, racial injustice, local and global poverty. We also pray for Hope and things closer to home.
(It is a voice-only zoom call, so no need to worry about having bed hair!)
We’d love you to join us (no previous prayer experience necessary.). Email firstname.lastname@example.org for the details.

Sometimes life can be tough…
Some families in and around Oxford are experiencing significant hardship. This has only intensified with the cornonavirus outbreak. Many more have lost or will lose jobs and livelihoods, with a number under great financial and emotional strain.
Right now we need each other more than ever. During lockdown we have seen incredible community spirit and together we can make a difference.
Hope Vineyard exists for all people. We are passionate about helping to alleviate the devastating effects of poverty on local people. We’re launching our first community focused initiative, Small Steps, from our new home at Templars Square Shopping Centre. Good quality new and second hand children’s clothes and equipment will be available to families that need it.
Use the following link to find out how you be a part of creating change in people’s lives through ‘Small Steps’.
We are a community on the move eager to explore new ways that we can love the people of Oxford.
Giving Back: During the second wave of the pandemic, when our local Intensive Care Units were stretched, we partnered with local people to express support and gratitude by gifting over 4000 hot meals to staff.
Foodboxes: During the first lockdown in 2020, we partnered with Tyndale Community School who initiated a fantastic project providing regular meals to families in need.
Last Minute Banquet: We planned and hosted a banquet for local people in 9 hours, as we put Jesus’ story of the ‘wedding banquet’ into action! (found in the Bible, Matthew 22)
Watch this space for the latest developments as we continue to be inspired by Jesus to step out and ‘love our neighbour’
