About us

who we are

True Vine is the umbrella name for our living and vibrant expression of the church of Jesus Christ. 

Our home church in London is a spiritual base for our Kingdom ministries and outreach to our community, the nation and other nations around the world. 

The heart of our vision is to equip believers who will love and worship the Lord through their devotion and service in His name across different communities, cultures and nations.
In summary we are a Christ-Centred, Kingdom minded, Word-based, Spirit-filled body of believers who are pursuing the fulfilling of the Great Commission whilst serving as a resource to the wider church body.
Our work presently consists of:

  • A multicultural family Church in Addiscombe, South London known as True Vine Church

  • Local and international partnerships with churches and Christian ministries through which we are able to provide joint resourcing to equip people for effective service to their communities and nations

  • Partnership with a Bible School known as the Grace City Bible School which was jointly founded with our Senior Leaders

  • Partnership with Kidcare International a mission founded by one of our Senior Leaders which addresses the needs of poor and disadvantaged children, families and communities in the UK and other nations
