Our Story -  The Vineyard Church of Hopkinton

The Vineyard Church of Hopkinton is part of the Association of Vineyard Churches, a growing denomination that now includes over 1500 churches in 60 countries, including over 500 churches in the U.S.  Vineyard churches have become known for helping people find a fresh experience of God in an informal, contemporary setting.

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 Metrowest 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 Guilford, CT, and Rob Davis became the senior pastor.

In September 2004, we moved to our current church building located at 84 South Street in Hopkinton, Massachusetts.
