Firstly, we’re really glad you found us. If you haven’t attended before, we’d like to briefly let you know what we’re about and what you can expect when you visit.
We believe church is for everyone, it should be enjoyable, understandable and relevant. We want people to truly understand the value, significance and purpose of their life and to begin to experience the joy and peace that comes travelling on that journey.
Lots of people attend church here every Sunday. We meet at 11 am but tea or coffee is available from about 10:30 am for anyone arriving earlier.
There is ample parking at the building, including disabled spaces at the front, with overflow parking available at the nearby school.
The Vine Church spans a range of ages and backgrounds. We believe our children are an important part of the church so there are a variety of Sunday morning children’s gangs from ages one through to primary seven.
We don’t mind how you dress, casual is fine. Our worship style is contemporary and dynamic; it’s lead by a band rather than an organ. Each service lasts for about 90 minutes but we don’t lock the doors so you can leave anytime you wish. Our café serves light snacks after the service and many people stay and enjoy having lunch together.
We look forward to warmly welcoming you when you visit.
What Kind of Church Are We?
- Independent: Not a member of a historic Christian denomination.
- Evangelical: We believe our faith should be shared with others.
- Spirit-led: We believe through the Holy Spirit God makes His presence available to every believer. We expect God to move amongst His people in a variety of ways.
- In essential beliefs — we have unity.
“There is one Body and one Spirit…there is one Lord, one faith, one baptism, and one God and Father of us all…” Eph. 4:4-6
- In non-essential beliefs — we have liberty.
“Accept him whose faith is weak, without passing judgment on disputable matters… Who are you to judge someone else’s servant? To his own master he stands or falls… So then each of us will give an account of himself to God… So whatever you believe about these things keep between yourself and God.” Romans 14:1,4,12,22
- In all our beliefs — we show love.
“…If I hold in my mind not only all human knowledge but also the very secrets of God, and if I have the faith that can move mountains — but have no love, I amount to nothing at all.” 1 Cor. 13:2 (Ph)
God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three personalities: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God.
