Training for our Community Groups

Posted: 17 July 2014

Are you a big picture or details person? Do you love the theory behind things or just getting stuck in? As I look out over our churches I see that at times we have heard so much about the WHY of Christian ministry but not always the HOW. Where are the little gems of wisdom that help us improve those practical things we need to get done in our Community Groups?

Well, here it is! Over the next 11 weeks during our series in the practical New Testament letter of James, Vine Church will be running 11 short, punching, practical courses to help our Community Groups group in a number of areas. These courses are for anyone in a Community Group who wants to step up and bless its family. We will be hosting these Vine Growth Courses at our office (31 Albion St, Surry Hills) from 3pm - 3:50 every Sunday for the next 11 weeks. Just bring a bible and a pen and a willingness to be used by God's Spirit. For more information you can contact James Stinson (, but check out the courses below and come along!
