We love Christmas and we love Surry Hills!
Join us for an outdoor, COVID Safe Christmas Festival with carols, great food, live music, jumping castles and other activities for the kids. Whether you're a regular at Vine Church or live in the neighbourhood we'd love to celebrate with you after a year we'll never forget.
At the Christmas Festival we'll also be partnering with Anglicare's 'Toys and Tucker' to share the joy of Christmas with people in need. We will collect non-perishable food and new toys on the night. A list of items needed are here.
If you have any questions about the Christmas Festival, please get in touch here.
Everyone is welcome!

Join us for our annual vision series!
There's nothing more attractive than a person who thinks about others and doesn’t need to be the hero. There’s nothing more attractive than a church that thinks about others and wants Jesus to be the hero.
Every year we stop, reflect and refocus with our annual vision series. This year we’re looking at how the church Jesus wants us to be is marked by deep humility.
Starts Sunday; 18 October

Join us on Sunday online at 10am and 4.30pm
This Sunday was mean’t to be the relaunch of services at Vine Church. But given we are seeing COVID cases growing in Sydney, with some local hotspots (thank you Harpoon Harry!) we’ve decided to postpone the relaunch to Sunday 16 August.
This is disappointing for us all. I hope you feel the loss.

He died to bring us to God and to remove the hostility between nations, families and neighbours. Every time we gather, we proclaim the miracle of what Jesus has done in bringing us together....Continue Reading

Clear eyes, full hearts, can't lose is the signature rallying cry of coach Eric Taylor's high school football team in the TV series Friday Night Lights. Coach Taylor draws in these wayward young men and gives them a vision for what they could be (clear eyes), loyalty to their teammates (full hearts), and an undying confidence that whatever the scoreboard says right now, they will win in the end (can't lose).

The Holy Spirit gives us clear eyes to see what truly matters in life.
He gives us full hearts that are passionate for Jesus and teammates. ...Continue Reading

We are living in a moment of unprecedented uncertainty, and we’ve been confronted with the fact that our jobs, our investments, our health, our families, our nation, even our way of life is insecure and fragile.
Our world is reeling from events beyond our control and we find ourselves vulnerable to the spread of disease, the decline in financial markets, instability in employment, and the decisions of our leaders and our neighbours. We are experiencing massive impact on our lives, our health, our work and our leisure.
Where is God in all this and what is he saying to a world during troubled times?
