Aylesbury Vineyard began in September 1997, when Mick and Lynn were commissioned by Riverside Vineyard in London, where they’d been serving under the leadership of Rick and Lulu Williams.

The Church met in a local Aylesbury school before acquiring its first building in Osier Way and then moving to the current site, which is a converted industrial unit in Gatehouse Close. The Vineyard Centre now comprises a main Auditorium with 300+ seats, a Café, a Children’s and Youth auditorium called The Warehouse, various meeting rooms, the Church Offices and the Storehouse ministry. The Church moved to two morning Services from October 2016, to accommodate the growing numbers attending.
