Vine Church Annual General Meeting
Monday, 29 March – 6.30pm
Why is the AGM important?
The AGM is important for us as a church because it is the way we take responsibility for the governance, administration and representation of our church. At the meeting will elect members to four roles: Parish Council, Wardens, Nominators and Synod Representatives. We're thankful to those that have served our church throughout 2020.
This is the broader governing body of our church – the elected representatives are joined by the wardens and lead pastor.

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.
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....Continue Reading
