Following Jesus in a Post Christian Society

Posted: 23 September 2021

You are living in a post Christian society. Between 2011 and 2016 almost 1 million people stopped identifying as 'Christian'. Where did they all go? They didn't become Muslims. Or New Age. Nether did they become atheists. As far as we can tell, most of them still believe in God in some way. What they have become is 'post Christian'.

A post Christian society is not a society devoid of Christianity, but one which is in the process of parodying, deconstructing and reappropriating the Christianity they have rejected.To be a Christian in 2021 is to swim against the cultural current. And that's hard!

Is Christianity dying?
What if I feel ashamed of following Jesus?
How do I tell...

Journal with us!

Posted: 31 August 2021

This year at Vine Church we want all our members to have a rich time with God in the Bible and prayer each day. Journalling with 'SOAP' is a great way to shape your time.
 

The S.O.A.P. Method of Bible Reading

S.O.A.P. stands for Scripture, Observation, Application, Prayer, and is a simple method of Bible journaling. It’ll help you record your thoughts, emotions and the revelation you receive from God’s Word.

If you're finding it difficult to read God's word during lockdown, joining us as we do 'SOAP' is a great way to begin. You might want to pick a gospel, use a notebook and write down notes to help you take it in.

Connect 2.0 Announcement!

Posted: 01 July 2021

For the past six weeks we've been in our annual vision series looking at the future God has for our church, which is one where grace changes everything. We have also been seeking to raise $400K to enable us to fast track stage 2 of the Connect Building Renewal.

On Sunday I was pleased to announce that we not only hit our target but exceeded it! The generosity and gospel heart of this church never stops taking me by surprise. We needed 80 people giving $400K, and were blown away by 111 people giving $516K. Praise God!

There is so much to give thanks for:

  • 35 people who are new since the end of 2019 joined in giving
  • 11 external supporters who cheer us on from afar gave...
