Going Deeper

Being formed and transformed by Jesus.

At Vineyard Church Cardiff, we care about the wellbeing of our church family and want to be a place where people feel supported as they go deeper with Jesus.

Prayer

Conversation with God is where our hearts begin to find wholeness and rest. Something profound also happens when we willingly respond to Jesus in a moment and make ourselves vulnerable by letting someone else pray for us. This is why we give many different opportunities for people to receive prayer ministry in our Vineyard family – it may be at a midweek small group, at one of our Sunday services, or it may be a that you need to meet with one or two others for some more specific prayer ministry during the week.

If you would like to meet and pray with someone from our Pastoral team, please get in touch via email or call the CV office on 02920 453368.

There are various ways that you can get involved with prayer with Vineyard Church Cardiff…

1) Intercession

We want to be a people who seek God, seek justice and act on his words. Intercession is praying for the Kingdom of God to come in our church, our city and beyond. As a church we are learning how to pray for others powerfully. We have Intercession teams that pray every Sunday before and during our services, watching what the Father is doing and partnering with Him to see His Kingdom come. If you’d like to join a Sunday Intercession team, sign-up here.

2) Prayer Gatherings

We want to be a people of prayer in this season, and in order for this to be expressed all across the city, we are going to be hosting weekly prayer gatherings to pray for Cardiff, our nation and our world. These will be starting up the week commencing 5 November, and we have loads of locations that these prayer gatherings will be happening including Penylan, Heath, Gabalfa, Cathays, Danescourt, Thornill and Roath. Head to our calendar to find one for you and sign up!

Pastoral Care

Many of us will go through times when we need the support of those around us, whether it is physical, emotional, or spiritual care. At Vineyard Church Cardiff this primarily happens through our small groups, and we encourage all who attend VCC regularly to join a small group community. We also have a Pastoral Care team comprised of paid staff and volunteers, who would love to meet for a cuppa and chat further.

To arrange a meeting, please get in touch via email or call the CV office on 02920 453368.

Spiritual Formation

Our vision for the spiritual formation of our church can be summed up by these three things – Freedom, Identity, and Authority.

Freedom

Hebrews 12 reminds us to “throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles…and fix our eyes on Jesus. At Vineyard Church Cardiff, we want to be a people who are free of our ‘stuff’ and run wholeheartedly toward Jesus, both as individuals and as a community.

Identity

The bible is full of verses that speak about our identity as children of God; that we are heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ (Romans 8). Let that sink in to your soul! If we can really grasp this and let it permeate every area of our lives, think how different our lives would look.

Authority

Only once we know our identity as sons and daughters of God do we begin to live out of a place of Kingdom authority, particularly in  prayer. We want to be people who can live out the Great Commission (Matthew 28), because of the authority that God has given us. There is power in the name of Jesus!

There are various ways for you to go deeper in your relationship with Jesus, and live out of the place of freedom, identity and authority. One of these ways is through a Sozo session (see below).

SOZO

SOZO is an extended prayer ministry tool that we use at Vineyard Church Cardiff, designed to bring you freedom from things that are holding you back or hindering your relationship with God. You will meet with two members of the trained Sozo team for roughly an hour where they will guide you through this prayer time and help to facilitate this encounter with God. If you’d like to request more information, or want to sign up for a session, contact our team here.

Hebrews 4:16

“Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.”
