AN INTERNATIONALLY acclaimed Christian Ministry will join a Weymouth Church for a special evening service.

Vinesong, a non-denominational team of missionaries who spread the gospel through worship, will lead the evening service at Weymouth Bay Methodist Church on Sunday, February 19.

Formed under the vision of a global ministry, Vinesong lead entire worship services in 11 different languages accompanied by songs performed in more than 20 languages.

Senior church steward at Weymouth Bay Methodist Church Mary Gracie said: “Vinesong got in touch with someone from Refresh, the Church of Weymouth and Portland in Action, as they are visiting Portland and thought while they were down here it would be good to do an evening service.

“We thought it would work really well. Our morning service is fairly traditional whereas in the evening we are open to trying things a little differently.”

Established in 1982 by John Watson, Vinesong is acclaimed as the first Christian ministry to have ministered with music at the United Nations in New York and the United Nations in Nairobi, Kenya.

While the team members are from different nations, Vinesong is based in the UK.

Since 1993, the group have led worship each year at the National Day of Prayer on the steps of the Capitol Building in Washington DC.

Mary added: “The evening will be an act of worship led by Vinesong who will bring their own instruments along.What we are hoping with this is that people from all the churches will come along so we can talk to one another.

“Refresh already bring all the churches together but we thought this was a good chance for us to do our bit. Of course, anybody is welcome to come along.”

The service will be slightly longer than normal, running from 6pm until 7.30pm.

Light refreshments will be served and there will be an opportunity to chat with members of the team afterwards.
