The Vineyard Life Church, Richmond
|The Vineyard Life Church, Richmond|
The Vineyard Life Church, Richmond was formed in 2013 as the result of a merger between Richmond Borough Church and The Vineyard Church, Richmond. It meets in a 19th-century church building whose facilities include the Vineyard Community Centre which in turn hosts the Richmond Food Bank, The Vineyard Charity Shop and The Basement Door – a music venue for young people.
The church building, with a gallery, was designed by John Davies (1796-1865), and opened in 1831, to seat a congregation of 500 to 600. It was rebuilt in 1851 after a fire. The church is built in Norman style, in grey brick, with a distinctive porch.
