Changed Lives

Posted: 22 September 2017 / Titus 3

This is our final week in the book of Titus looking at the healthy church. We have seen Paul give instructions to his young protege on the church and the household. In this final week he turns his attention to living in society. How are Christians to live out their changed lives in society? Christians are often seen as out of step with society on a bunch of issues. So how are we to engage? How are we to be a healthy church in a challenging culture? How are Christians to live in society?

Come along this Sunday to dig into the Bible's teaching on living a changed life in society.

A new name for an old church

Posted: 20 September 2017

You may have seen St Michael’s Anglican Church on the corner of Albion and Flinders St, Surry Hills – an old church with 163 years of history. Over the past few years, we've experienced a rejuvenation – there are new people coming along, kids being born and people exploring Jesus for the first time.

To reflect this renewal, we have decided to change our name to Vine Church. This new name conveys the life, love and freedom that we find in Jesus. It also reflects that we are all connected to each other as a genuine community (John 15:5). We'd love to invite you to celebrate this new name with us in October at a church service followed by a party with free food, drinks and...

The story behind “A new name for an old church”

Posted: 20 September 2017

As you may be aware, Vine Church + St Michael’s came together under the leadership of Toby Neal two years ago in a unique partnership. Vine Church is a new church which has grown to be a vibrant community filled with young inner-city people exploring the life, love and freedom which Jesus offers.

St Michael’s, on the other hand, is a much older church, with over 163 years of history. Its vintage is symbolised by the 1853 Edmund Blacket church building which stands as a witness to the many generations of Christians who have followed Jesus in Surry Hills.

The merger of these two churches brought together the young and old. It’s a combination we think communicates the message of...

Real hope

Posted: 15 September 2017

This Sunday is going to be a great time as we gather together as God's people to praise his Son and encourage each other. Andy Bryan is speaking from Titus 2 on what can keep us on fire living for Jesus. It's a great passage and Andy's message is relevant for us all.

Also this week I will be announcing the decision regarding the name of our church.

Don't forget if you're a lady to sign up for Girls' Getaway. I had a great time yesterday with Steph Leung helping her prepare her talk for the getaway on Psalm 16. You're going to have a fantastic time away building authentic spirituality and relationships.

Hope you have a great weekend. See you Sunday....Continue Reading

Godly relationships

Posted: 08 September 2017

Faithful teachers, godly relationships, real hope and changed lives. These are the things which make for a healthy church according to the letter Paul sent a young pastor named Titus.

This Sunday, we are looking at the second of these from Titus 2. Here, Paul tells his young protege what he is to teach to the five different groups in his church: old men, old women, young women, young men and slaves. 

We don't tend to like people who make gender or age generalisations, but the Bible teaches us that men and women, the young and old each have strengths and temptations unique to them. We don't do ourselves any favours by pretending that we are all the same. A healthy church...

The Healthy Church

Posted: 01 September 2017

Every Christian wants to be part of a healthy church: where leaders stand for the truth and not what makes them look good, where relationships are deep and strong, where people find genuine hope, and where there's real transformation happening in their lives.

Join us this September as we look at a letter in the Bible to a young pastor named Titus about what makes a healthy church.

This Sunday

Posted: 25 August 2017

Over the next couple of weeks we are addressing two significant issues facing our society.

This Sunday we are thinking though Domestic and Family Violence. The Bible is not reticent in speaking about this subject. It contains numerous accounts which make public the horror of what is done in private, even by family members. There is no more shocking story in the Bible than the rape of Tamar in 2 Samuel 13. It's a story of abuse within a family who claimed to worship the true God. I have asked Steph Leung, a student minister at church, to help me teach on this topic. I hope you can be there.

Secondly, on Wednesday September 13 at 6.45pm, we will be gathering as a church to...
