Rob & Sarah Gardiner - Senior Pastors

Rob & Sarah Gardiner - Senior Pastors

Rob and Sarah became Christians while they were students at University. Having met, and married, whilst in Reading, they then felt God call them into the Vineyard movement of churches, which was just starting in the UK. They moved to Twickenham to join one of the UK’s then four existing Vineyard churches. It was during their time at Riverside Vineyard that they felt God clearly identifying a path which took them and their young family, back to Reading. This time, the call from God was to plant a new Vineyard church there in 1994. They are both passionate about seeing the Kingdom of God advance in the Thames Valley and beyond.
