Our Story

Belfast City Vineyard was planted by Philip and Jackie Corrigan in 1996, and has always sought to serve and love Belfast and bring the life of Jesus to the city. In 2001, Andrew and Harmony Smith arrived as interns from Evanston Vineyard in Chicago, and became the Senior Pastors in October of 2002.

Since then we have grown and now meet in various ways and locations throughout our city, but our heart hasn’t changed. We believe life with Jesus impacts everything. As we follow Jesus and encounter his presence we are formed by Him, and his goodness and life overflows and impacts everything around us, our relationships, our circumstances, even our city and the island we live on.

We love being part of the Vineyard Movement of Churches in the UK and Ireland, and you can read our statement of faith here.
