All about Jesus.
When Lilly arrived in Sydney, she sensed a void in her life. She turned to the internet in search of a church, and that’s when she found Vine Church. Though she had Christian friends before, she had never stepped foot inside a church. Filled with a mix of nervousness and hope she entered our doors and felt an instant wave of relief as she encountered people just like her.
Through our Explore course, Lilly gradually discovered the profound impact Jesus could have on her life, leading her to make the life-changing decision to follow Him. Lilly represents just one of the many lives transformed by the life, love, and freedom Jesus gives. Every year we want to see more and more people come to know Jesus love. Your generosity is what makes all of this possible!

Frequently Asked Questions:
Jesus warned that it is impossible to serve both God and money (Matt 6:24). One of the ways we demonstrate the fact that we worship God and not our money is by giving it away.
Paul told the Ephesians elders, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive’ (Acts 20:35). The act of giving is spiritually enriching.
In the Old Testament, God’s people were encouraged to give a tithe (10%) of their income back to him. By the time we reach the New Testament, a new principle is introduced-sacrificial generosity. Sacrificial generosity replaces the Old Testament principle of tithing. So, rather than being commanded to give10%, Christians are now called to show generosity in response to God’s grace shown to us in Jesus Christ. Even though the New Testament does not lay upon us the old law of 10%, it would seem rather inconsistent with the gospel of grace for us to conclude that we should give any less than 10%. Paradoxically, grace actually lifts the bar on generosity rather than lowering it. If you want to know what generosity looks like, why not try starting with a tithe and see if you can build up from there? Let the tithe be your springboard for generosity.
Donating to the charitable activities of Vine Church is a great way to contribute to the gospel, whilst also boosting your tax return. A tax deductible gift or donation will reduce your taxable income, resulting in a higher refund on tax paid throughout the year or a reduced ATO debt when you complete your tax return.
Vine Church has the status of a deductible gift recipient (DGR) for our Foundation Activities: Scholarships, Care fund, Connect Building Renewal and Bread of Life.
