Who We Are

Belfast City Vineyard is affiliated with Vineyard Churches UK and Ireland, a growing family of churches in England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and throughout the world. Find out more about what we believe as a group of churches by reading our Statement of Faith.

Belfast City Vineyard was planted by Philip and Jackie Corrigan in 1996, and has met in many venues across Belfast. In 2001, Andrew and Harmony Smith arrived as interns from Evanston Vineyard in Chicago, and became the Senior Pastors in October of 2002.

At the Vineyard we passionately believe that if we follow Jesus seriously and deeply, His life will be formed in us, bringing radical change and transformation. What is more, his life not only impacts us, but as we are filled with His presence, it overflows and touches everything around us, our relationships, our circumstances, even our city and the Island we live on. So, our heart, our aim, our goal and purpose is to be and produce intimate whole disciples of Jesus who reproduce themselves and bring the life of Jesus to everything around them.

We believe a follower of Jesus knows and loves Him, receives from Him, is changed by Him, and because of that, goes on mission with Him, turns outward and lets the life and transformation of Jesus overflow all around them.

That is the kind of people we are, and are becoming at the Vineyard, and we take seriously our God given mission to love influence and shape the city and communities around us, serving them, and living out the gospel that says the earth is the Lords and everything in it, and that he loves and died for every bit of it. We want to invite you to come on that journey with us.
