"I long, as does every human being, to be at home wherever I find myself" 

- Maya Angelou

No man is an Island? Whether we like it or not, none of us is an individual without influence around us, and we are all changed somehow by those we interact with.

Through the Vine Community, we want to build safe spaces where we can be honest, authentic, brave about our weaknesses and bold about our strengths; to bring positive influence around us.  

Belonging and believing...

We are a network of people across Thirsk and the surrounding area who want to live well and support and encourage one other through life. We do this in multiple ways and with different focusses.


We meet socially, to explore questions of life, and in small and large groups to build each other up as disciples in faith. We are spiritual explorers right through to committed Christians.

"I think the great thing about The Vine is that they don't judge you.  You can just be yourself, come as you are'.  It's great."


Naomi, God@Work member

"God@Work is a great way to learn and discuss how to live out our faith in the workplace. The focused nature really helps to set me up for the rest of the day".
