Compassion has always been a key biblical value (Isaiah 58 & 61) for us at the Vineyard as we work among the poor, broken and vulnerable within our community. It is our belief that the church should be at the forefront of tackling the poverty that exists on our doorstep.
All Compassion Projects are a response to various needs encountered in our community of Coleraine and along the Causeway Coast. The support Compassion offers is available to everyone in the community, regardless of belief, race or sexual orientation but particularly those who are disadvantaged and suffering financially due to low income, benefits, unemployment, or disability.
As we have demonstrated God’s love to a community in need we have had seen hundreds of lives and families have been transformed.
