Opportunities to Serve

SERVE

Make a difference in the lives of others.

Without the incredible volunteer teams who serve Jesus every week people would not be finding the life, love and freedom Jesus offer. 

Get involved!

If you’d like to join our mission and play an important role in these teams, let us know by completing your ministry opportunities survey below.

We’re here to help you use your God-given gifts to serve others. 

Why Serve?

It’s our hope that everyone who calls Vine home would serve in at least one ministry and grow in humility, servant heartedness and kingdom effectiveness.

Every week at Vine Church hundreds of people use their God-given gifts to build the church and connect people to the life, love and freedom Jesus offers. As we serve, the Holy Spirit is at work in and through us so that is not just us doing a job, but God working through us with supernatural power. We want to honour all the teams that are involved in helping us connect people to Jesus and encourage you to be praying for all our ministry teams.

Once you have gone through Onboard, we would love for you to start serving. We are not looking for jobs to be done. We want to connect you with a role you have been designed for given your abilities, gifting, and passion – all towards fulfilling our mission as a church.

There are a bunch of ways to serve others and help us connect more people to the life, love and freedom Jesus offers. Here are some of our ministries.
