stages of growth
- 1987: International Christian Fellowship (ICF), as the new church was known, soon outgrew its first home and moved to a series of larger locations in Brussels.
- Mid-1990’s: ICF developed contacts with the Vineyard movement in the UK. Teams visited Belgium, relations deepened and many Vineyard values and practices were adopted.
- 2002: The leaders explored the possibility of becoming a Vineyard church and began to build close ties with the Benelux Vineyards. It became clear that ICF’s core values were aligned with those of the Vineyard movement.
- January 2004: The church was officially welcomed as a full member of the Association of Vineyard Churches (AVC), becoming Vineyard Brussels.
- December 2004: Vineyard Brussels moved to a venue in Evere, which it rented 24/7, providing office, meeting and training space.
- April 2013: Vineyard Brussels moved to Auderghem/Oudergem.
People now come to Vineyard Brussels from across the city and throughout Belgium to meet together both on Sundays and during the week.
