“We are a group of ordinary people going on an adventure with an extraordinary God.”

“For I know the plans I have for you,declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” jeremiah 29:11


Adventure is an exciting word and always conjures up images of the unknown, the risk takers and fearless individuals that pursue the unthinkable and reach the unimaginable that we would all like to be in one way or another. As we have moved to Inverness to start a new church we believe that every single one of us has a life changing adventure to step into that is waiting to be unveiled by God. This will not only impact our life, but the people around us and ultimately our city.

We are a church that want to explore and journey with you, whether you have been to church hundreds of times in the past or never been to church and explored faith. We would so love to connect with you and hear your story. As we start this brand new church this Autumn why not come along to some events we are running, check us out and try church? You can hear our heart and vision for our brilliant city of Inverness in the short video below, and who knows you may just want to stick around with us for the adventure.

We look forward to meeting you,

Thomas & Mhairi Urquhart




“A church where people come alive.”

“Dry bones, hear the word of the Lord! This is what the Sovereign Lord says to these bones: I will make breath enter you, and you will come to life.” EZEKIEL 37:4


The vision of Inverness Vineyard Church is to be a place “where people come alive.” We believe that when people encounter Jesus, the adventure in life really begins. That we come alive and begin to step into an exciting future and the promise of eternal life spent with God, that impacts not only our lives but the life of the city. We long to lead the city of Inverness into life, so to do that we will try to keep these nine important values at the core of who we are and in everything we do:

RELEVANT //  living a faith filled life in a way that we can relate to that is accessible whatever your background or experience of church
FUN // church is to be fun and enjoyed. we don’t take ourselves seriously but we take god seriously.
THE HOLY SPIRIT // pursuing Gods presence and his power to heal, save and see miracles that are so undeniably him.
ADVENTURE // being a people who are bold, take risks and invite people to join IN WITH US at every opportunity.
worship // we value worship, the intimacy and the power it carries, and what god changes in our lives through singing songs to him.
THE BIBLE // we believe in the power and authority of the bible and we will teach from it regularly, it’s as relevant today as it’s ever been.
FAMILY // we want people to not just be part of a crowd but part of a life giving, honest, real community. there is a place for everybody.
SERVE // We will be a group of people passionate and deliberate about loving and serving our city.

Thomas & Mhairi Urquhart are the pastors of Inverness Vineyard Church. Before recently moving to Inverness, they lived in Aberdeen for the last 11 years, being part of City Church Aberdeen firstly as youth pastors and most recently leading City Church Ellon, 15 miles north of Aberdeen. They are coming to Inverness full of faith  and ready to serve Inverness in any way they can whilst sharing the good news of the gospel. They have 2 brilliant little boys, Joshua and Struan and have a love of beach days and (too many) trips to Starbucks!
