Find Out About Us

Jesus once said "I've come so that you can live life to the full" we like taking him at His word!  At Church on Berryfields there is a massive welcome to any residents who wants to join us in exploring together what it means to follow Jesus in our new community of Berryfields. 

 

Jesus spent much of his time in peoples houses at parties or having meals, we think that's a great place to start, so do link in with us on the web but better still meet with us at one of our midweek meetups in people's homes.  We're of all different ages, backgrounds and circumstances and love connecting with new people, so wherever you’ve got to in thinking about God, we would love to get to know you.  

Our DNA

Below are our church family values, the things that make us tick, the core of who we are, the passion in our hearts and the reason why we do the things we do - they are the way we do things around here!!

Together we explore what it means to follow the way of Jesus and what his transforming news means for our Berryfields community, for the world and for ourselves.

Celebrating Jesus

Sharing Life

Together we live on Berryfields as a community, celebrating, eating together and supporting one another through the ups and downs of life.

Living Generously

Together we respond to God's extravagant generosity to us by being generous in giving our time, talents, money, and encouragement to bless others as we have been blessed. 

Building Community

 Together we are part of the new Berryfields community and are actively working with others here  to form a vibrant and meaningful place to rest, work and play.

Being Real

Together as a diverse community and individually valued by God, we would love to be people who accept one another and be our real selves.

Praying Faithfully

Together and individually we follow Jesus example spending time talking and listening to God as our Father, to know Him better and to pray for ourselves and others.

Our Leaders

Gareth & Jenny Lane

Hi, we're Gareth & Jenny Lane and have lived on Berryfields with our 4 children since January 2014, having moved from South Aylesbury where we were for 4 years.  Prior to that we lived in High Wycombe where Gareth worked as an IT consultant and Jenny a primary school teacher.

 

Together we head up Church on Berryfields, Gareth is the Community Vicar as well as Chaplain to the Aylesbury Vale Academy and Berryfields Primary school.  He is also one of the Berryfields Parish councilors.

 

As well as weekly church meetups we have also organised the fundays in the park, carols at Christmas, and launched the Berryfields Tuesday CoffeeStop.  We're passionate about making Berryfields an even better place to live and helping us journey in faith as a community.
