More of you, less of me

Posted: 07 October 2020

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

We’ve postponed our Relaunch

Posted: 28 July 2020

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.

Watch the announcement here

This is disappointing for us all. I hope you feel the loss.

Christ bled and died to overcome the way sin scatters us into seperate tribes and isolates us as self willed people. 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....

Clear Eyes, Full Hearts, Cant Lose (New Series)

Posted: 23 July 2020

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). 

Every Christian on team Jesus has the same motto, and it's the work of the Holy Spirit who helps us play the game before us. 

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
