Equipping people, Building relationships, Bringing hope to a hurting world
We are the Vineyard Church of the Peninsula, currently meeting via Zoom, as well as in person once per month. We are happy to be in Hampton Roads as members of the growing Community of Churches called ‘Vineyard’ across the US and beyond. As a church of families, we like to celebrate the life Jesus has given us. Ours is a contemporary, non-stuffy manner when we meet on Sundays at 10 AM. You’ll find normal people sipping caffeine and munching on some kind of donut or other similar nutrition source. We try to focus on making our 21st Century lives work with The Bible as a ‘Life Bible’. We pray, teach and encourage. And we like each other, often hanging around long after our meeting time is over when we meet in person. Whether you just moved to Hampton Roads, got transferred here, have lived here forever, or are just vacationing here, we’re always excited to include new folks in our family. So, the welcome is sincere. Drop us a line if you’d like to join us!

No long faces

Did you see that?
It’s been said (and sung) that on a clear day you can see forever. Well, forever is a fair distance, but I can imagine it would be unforgettable should it happen. I won’t claim having seen forever,...
