As a Christian church, we affirm the historic creeds. We are also part of the Vineyard, which is a global network of churches. As a movement, the Vineyard has certain distinctives – things we emphasize and that excite us about following Jesus. Check out our distinctives here.
The Vineyard Church of Hopkinton is part of the Association of Vineyard Churches, a growing denomination that now includes over 2400 churches in 90 countries, including over 600 churches in the USA. Committed to worship with passion, serve with devotion, and equip people of every age, ethnicity, language, and background to do the works that Jesus did, the Vineyard is a church planting movement that is growing daily.
In 1997, Rob Davis and John Reichart sensed a call from God to start a church. John’s heart was to be in Hopkinton, which was strategically located on Route 495 and was one of the fastest growing communities in Massachusetts. So in 1998 they gathered a team of about 30 from the Vineyard Church in Framingham, and the Vineyard Church of Hopkinton was planted.
They began with public gatherings throughout the summer on the Hopkinton Common. The first official service was on October 11, 1998 in the Golden Pond Assisted Living Center.
As the church grew, services moved to the old high school, then to the the Hopkins School. In June 2002, John Reichart moved to pastor a Vineyard in Connecticut, and Rob Davis became the Senior Pastor.
In September 2004, we moved to our current church building located at 84 South Street in Hopkinton and have continued to grow and encounter Jesus.
