Vineyard 61 Church - Balham

About Us
Lead Pastor: Steve & Viv Bateman

We are a growing church community in South London made up of people from many walks of life. We are a multisite church, which means all of our Sunday services across Balham and Battersea have the same feel, values and DNA.

We are open for a small crowd every Sunday at our Balham and Battersea sites - if you would like to join us, please head to our website to book your ticket. You can also watch our service live online every Sunday at 11am on our YouTube or Facebook channels. We would love for you to join us, online or in person!


Everyone is welcome, no matter what your background or experience. If you’re exploring faith or looking for a church to call your home, we’d love you to join us in Balham or Battersea on a Sunday.

Our name comes from Isaiah 61, a scripture that describes Jesus, his ministry on earth as well as what Jesus wants our ministry to look like today.

“The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me. He has sent me to bring good news to the oppressed, to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and release to the prisoners; to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favour.” - Isaiah 61:1-2

Our Vision

We are a people who are together bringing life to our city and communities, that seeks to help people find and follow Jesus, be empowered by the Holy Spirit, connect and worship God together. We do this by being a compassionate church, as we live on a mission to serve our communities and to show and tell thousands about the love and power of God.


We are part of a growing movement of vineyard churches, built on God’s transforming word, who worship God with passion, intimacy and expectation. We are God’s children, empowered by his Spirit, extending his Kingdom together, everywhere in every way. We will serve people, especially the poor and vulnerable, and communicate the goodness of Jesus with compassion and generosity. We will make disciples, develop leaders, plant churches, and contribute to the blessing of the whole Body of Christ.
