Meet our Leaders

Hendrik and Leonie Hattingh - Senior Pastors

Hendrik: "I came to the Vineyard by invitation, but I stayed because of a sense of God's calling and the recognition that the Vineyard was my home. I love raising up leaders and I am passionate about the Bible - what an amazing book! My great pleasure in life is fishing in the quiet of early mornings, and my favourite food is Nandos!"

Leonie: "My passion is to know Jesus more each day, to know his grace and love for me, and to walk in the path and purpose God has called me to. What I love about the Vineyard is the freedom to lose myself in 30 minutes of dedicated worship, the fact that I am loved and accepted just as I am, and being involved in ministry and leadership without limitation."
Matt and Sarah Stent - Assistant Pastors
Tim and Nicola Baker - Assistant Pastors
Steph & Jase Helyar - Youth Pastors
Richard and Bex Smith - Cluster Leaders

Pastoral Team

The Pastoral Team is headed up by senior pastors Hendrik & Leonie Hattingh, who planted Yeovil Vineyard Church in 2009. They are supported by assistant pastors Matt and Sarah Stent who oversee the Worship and Children's Ministries respectively. Tim and Nicola Baker joined the team as assistant pastors overseeing Small Groups and administrative team. Jase and Steph Helyar are our youth pastors.

In addition to the pastoral team, we also have cluster leaders Richard and Bex Smith who provide pastoral care to the small group leaders.
