The Vine Christian Community Church

About Us

As a Church we want to help people learn more about Jesus and grow into a fantastic relationship with Him. We have a great group of people who are more than happy to serve and assist in anyway.

Whoever you are and wherever you've been, you're welcome to join us. We encourage you to come as you are. There is no formal dress code and we want you to know that you are most welcome.

Whether you're exploring the Christian faith or a Christian looking for a new home, there's something for you.

About Us

The motivation for everything we do flows from the Bible and our love of Jesus.

We Are Church

We believe that all things are possible through God. Whether you are a believer or not, you're welcome to join us at our service on Sunday.

What Do We Value

We have a passion to connect with people and help them discover that God has a place and a purpose for them. Knowing God is key to understanding our own identity and being comfortable with who we are and how God has made us.

How We Connect

We connect with God through The Bible, Prayer and worship. These connections give us an intimacy with God and gives us revelation about who we are. When we discover who we are in God, we find our purpose and meaning.

Pastor

Colin Barnard

I am the Pastor at The Vine and I have been in leadership for around 7 years. I have been a Christian for nearly 12 years and I am married with a son. I became the Pastor 3 years ago and believe that God gave me a vision and a mission for the future of the Church.

I am so excited about the new chapter in the life of our Church. We are looking forward to re-engaging with the local community and seeing where God takes us on this new journey.

What To Expect On Sunday

Covid has obviously had an impact on what you can expect to see at our Sunday Services.

We still have a talk from the Bible and worship time. The only change in our worship is that the congregation is currently not allowed to sing.

Masks must be worn at all times.

We have limited seating and this can be booked online using the "book a ticket" link at the top of the page. We also stream our services live, so if you're unable to come, you can still watch on our livestream channel. You can also catch-up with previous services.

There are no youth services currently so groups or families need to stay together during the service.

We currently do not serve refeshments and we are not allowed to socialise in the Church after the service. However, weather permitting, we can meet outside.

On the whole this is very much a stripped down version of our normal service. We hope and pray that the situation changes, but in the mean time we need to do our part to try and reduce the spread of Coronavirus.

01.

HOW LONG ARE SUNDAY SERVICES?

Its about 60 minutes. You can stay afterwards and get to know us. (in a Covid safe way)

02.

WHAT DO KIDS DO DURING THE SERVICE?

Children have to stay with their family/group during the whole service to comply with Covid legislation. There are no youth services currently.

03.

WHAT IS THE MUSIC LIKE?

We enjoy music and singing as part of our worship to God. Our morning service has a mixture of modern contempory music and some classic worship songs. We can't sing at the moment, but we can use the worship music to give thanks and pray to God ourselves.

04.

CAR PARKING

We have a 10 space car park, but there is free parking on the surrounding streets. Please park with consideration for our neighbours. 

05.

WHAT DENOMINATION ARE YOU?

We are part of the Baptist Union of Churches, but we are first and foremost a Church of God's people. 

06.

WHAT DO I WEAR?

We want you to feel at ease and wear whatever you're comfortable in. We usually dress casually. 

What We Believe

The one true God who lives eternally in three persons – the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.


The love, grace and sovereignty of God in creating, sustaining, ruling, redeeming and judging the world.


The divine inspiration and supreme authority of the Old and New Testament Scriptures, which are the written Word of God – fully trustworthy for faith and conduct.

The dignity of all people, made male and female in God’s image to love, be holy and care for creation, yet corrupted by sin, which incurs divine wrath and judgement.

The incarnation of God’s eternal Son, the Lord Jesus Christ – born of the virgin Mary; truly divine and truly human, yet without sin.

The atoning sacrifice of Christ on the cross: dying in our place, paying the price of sin and defeating evil, so reconciling us with God.

The bodily resurrection of Christ, the first fruits of our resurrection; his ascension to the Father, and his reign and mediation as the only Saviour of the world.

The justification of sinners solely by the grace of God through faith in Christ.

The ministry of God the Holy Spirit, who leads us to repentance, unites us with Christ through new birth, empowers our discipleship and enables our witness.

The church, the body of Christ both local and universal, the priesthood of all believers — given life by the Spirit and endowed with the Spirit’s gifts to worship God and proclaim the gospel, promoting justice and love.

The personal and visible return of Jesus Christ to fulfil the purposes of God, who will raise all people to judgement, bring eternal life to the redeemed and eternal condemnation to the lost, and establish a new heaven and new earth.
