This Sunday: It’s time to see God at work in the world

Posted: 25 January 2019

Sometimes when we hear from the Bible there doesn't seem to be much going on. It just seems like words on a page. At other times the words jump off the page at us. They hit us right to our hearts. Why is that? Are we just reading words on a page or is there something else going on when we open the Bible together?

Come along this Sunday as Al Stewart helps us to look into Jesus' parable about the sower and the soils. This might be a familiar passage to you or it might not. Either way it will be a great Sunday hearing Al tease out what our hearts need to hear from Jesus' words.

This Sunday: It’s time to see what matters most

Posted: 18 January 2019

The question of what matters most in our lives is a tough one to answer. It is hard to put our finger on just what it is that we need more than anything else. After all there are lots of important things in our life. But if there is something more important, then how would I find out? And if I did find out, what would change in my life?

I'm excited to hear from Al Stewart as he looks at these questions from Mark 2:1-17. Join us this Sunday to find out what really matters most and how that truth will change our lives.

Men’s Events 2019

Posted: 18 January 2019

Our aim this year at Vine Church is to grow godly men. There is great confusion in our society about what it means to be a man. Many voices shout about toxic masculinity or boys clubs; masculinity is so often portrayed negatively. When that’s combined with the confused and often negative view of what it means to be Christian, often Christian men can feel ‘beat up’ or confused, or always on the back foot.

Join us at one of our breakfast or dinner events for fellowship and to hear from a great lineup of speakers.

Saturday, 23 February – 7.30am
Speaker: Jason Perini

Friday, 22 March – 6.30pm
How to live well

Vision Sunday 2019

Posted: 15 January 2019

Vision Sunday is coming up on 10 February. It’s a chance to hear some stories about God’s work in people’s lives, to take stock of where we have come from, and for me to share what God has placed on my heart for our church this year. Can I ask you to pray for me and us all: that I’d speak a God-given vision for our church, and that we would all come with a willing heart ready to give ourselves fully to the Lord.

On the day, we will be commissioning three groups of people: those who serve, those in Community Groups and those who teach the Bible at church. Ministry is a great privilege and we want to join together in making a commitment to serve in a way that pleases Jesus.

This Sunday: It’s time to shut up and listen

Posted: 11 January 2019

Sometimes people get up and speak and it is all too easy to ignore them and not listen. But sometimes someone comes along and the way they speak and what they say is captivating. You can't not listen, and hang on their every word. There aren't many speakers around like that.

Come along this Sunday to see why Jesus is described as being like no other speaker. He spoke with authority, power, and conviction. When he spoke, things happened and people took notice. But what has he come to say? Brian Leung is going to be preaching to us and it will be a challenging and encouraging.

Don't forget that we have Summer Sessions on for the next three Wednesdays, starting at Bondi this...

Weekend Away 2019

Whether you have been with us every week or are new to Vine Church, we would love it if you joined us for our weekend away.

We’re going to have a great time together at the beautiful Stanwell Tops relaxing with old friends and making new ones. Richard ‘Gibbo’ Gibson will be speaking on the Bible’s ‘one another’ refrain; constantly calling us to mutual love, service, concern, prayer and compassion in the family of God. Richard has a background in social work, wrote his PhD on the emotions of God, and is the principal of Brisbane School of Theology. A fierce touch footy player, he’s a husband to Kim, father of three and a proud new granddad.

This Sunday: It’s Time

Posted: 04 January 2019

It's a new year and we are turning, as a church, to a new book of the Bible: the gospel of Mark. Over the next few months we will be diving into what I would consider to be the most exhilarating and breathless account of Jesus' life.

I'm not sure how 2018 was for you or how 2019 will go. If it is anything like mine there will be ups and downs and plenty of times where you wish for a life less broken, less hurt or less fragile. The beginning of Mark's gospel is a mind-blowing announcement that there is something better for us in this life even with its ups and downs.

Join us this Sunday as we listen to this great announcement.

Anything worth having is worth waiting for

Posted: 28 December 2018

Christmas is over for another year but the message of the saviour born in David’s town is still there for us to think about. This week Simeon Cumberland will say farewell to us by speaking to us from an important passage in Luke. His namesake was there in Jerusalem soon after the birth of Jesus ready to welcome the king. The challenge for us will be to maintain a similar attitude.

Looking forward to seeing you on Sunday,

It’s Time

Posted: 28 December 2018

The most successful election campaign ever run in Australia was the 1972 “It’s time” campaign which brought the Labour party out of the political wilderness. Most people over 45 still know the song that went with the campaign. For Australians, it was something like Obama’s famous “Yes we can” campaign.

The very first words of Jesus in the Gospel of Mark are, “The time has come.” Jesus says, “It’s time!” and his campaign is not political spin, but the genuine announcement by the one who has the power to bring us out of the spiritual wilderness into a better world.

Join us as we start 2019 looking at what Jesus offers the world.

Starting Sunday, 6 January

Christmas Services

Posted: 22 December 2018

Part of the Christmas tradition involves getting the family together. You might not have family around, but we'd love to have you part of our church family this weekend.

On Sunday we've got an amazing service lined up. I am speaking about how Christmas involves waiting: we live between the first Christmas and the second Christmas. We have peace in our hearts but long for Jesus to come and make peace on earth.

Then on Christmas Eve (Monday) we have two special services.

- At 5pm, we have a massive family Christmas service. There will be interactive talks, carols and a BBQ dinner afterwards.

- At 9pm, we have a candlelight service with carols plus wine and cheese before the...
