Bring your team, come and hang out, invest in your worship community, and spend time worshipping together with the wider Vineyard family. Everyone involved in worship in the Vineyard family is welcome.

We are excited that Adam Russell from Vineyard Campbellsville (USA) will be joining us in 2017. Adam is the pastor of Vineyard Campbellsville in Central Kentucky along with his wife Heather. Adam has travelled extensively in the Vineyard training worship leaders and songwriters in creating a culture of songwriting in a local church context. Vineyard Campbellsville have released the highly acclaimed Promises of Wonder and All Things Rise.

Adam spoke on ‘Worship as a force multiplier’ at the USA Cause Con 2016 event.
