Baptism Sunday

“We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life. – Romans 6:4″

Baptism is a public declaration of faith and your commitment to Jesus Christ. It is a symbol of the beginning of a new life – the old life is left behind in the waters.

Sign up now to be baptised by clicking here to access the form.

There will be a Baptism class on Sunday the 27th March from 10:45am – 11:30am in the Kintail room at the Vine Church.  This is to help you prepare for your baptism and answer any questions you may have.

 Ukraine Welcomer Training

Last Sunday in the Kintail room at the Vine a new team was launched, the Vine Welcome Churches Team which included Gill Hannah, Daniel Denisiuk, Maja Denisiuk and Claire Fisher. This was an initial meeting to get established and start some training and discussion how our church prepares and plans to welcome Assylum seekers and Refugees into our church community.
As we establish our plan we will look for ways to include more people who have a heart and desire to help in this area also.
UK Welcomer training is this week on Zoom with details below. It seems the training is open to all so feel free to sign up and let us know if you do.
Please do pray and encourage the new team and pray we become a truly Welcoming Church 💙💛

Anti-trafficking organizations unite to condemn Ukraine invasion and traffickers’ attempts to target fleeing victims

They have signed an open letter that reads in part: “As long as the military invasion of Ukraine continues, the vulnerability of displaced people in the country to human trafficking will increase due to deteriorating rule of law and impunity; further forced displacement; humanitarian need and socio-economic stress and social fragmentation. Human trafficking will also escalate in the countries to where people from Ukraine are fleeing. There have also been deeply concerning reports of attempts to traffic women and girls fleeing Ukraine in neighbouring countries, including Poland and Romania.”

RightNow Media – Truth & Love

Have you ever had to choose between truth and love? Sometimes, the truth can feel harsh and unloving, but can we really love someone without telling them the truth? It isn’t unusual to wrestle with balancing what is right with what we feel, but what if we didn’t have to choose between truth and love?

Join pastor Marquise Cox in this four-session series as he shows us how to speak the truth in love, wrestle with doubts, talk about Jesus with people who disagree with us, and share our faith. You don’t have to choose between being loving or truthful—in Christ, we can do both.

 

The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry

We are all busy. Some of us can’t remember the last time we rested or even had free time. Our busyness can feel productive but it is a toxic distraction, sapping our spiritual, physical & emotional vitality. It may seem like we have no choice but to live at a frantic pace, but God has a better path for us.

Join pastor & author John Mark Comer in this five-part series as he addresses one of the greatest threats to our spiritual lives: hurry.  Instead of allowing our calendars & screens to control our lives, Jesus offers us a new rhythm of life, overflowing with grace, peace & beauty.
