About The Arches
In 2001, Trent Vineyard started The Arches. Trent Vineyard is a large contemporary church in Nottingham with a vision to serve and help those in need, the disadvantaged and the socially excluded in Nottingham.
A row of derelict arches under Abbey Bridge was converted and renovated into a place to store and distribute furniture, household goods, clothing, baby equipment and emergency food. After 11 years of growth, we moved into a building on Lenton Lane, next to Trent Vineyard.
With over 200 volunteers, mainly from Trent Vineyard, The Arches is able to reach out to thousands of vulnerable people, taking referrals from over 100 organisations in Nottingham.
