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

We start the morning with a welcome and a drink (hot or cold). Before the main service begins, we invite parents with children into Sunday school, where parents and children enjoy the time together. Just as the Bible teaches, we believe that parents should be supported to help their children learn about God, as well as encourage a healthy biblical relationship between parents and their children.

When the main service begins, the children stay with us but go to our craft area where they can express their creativity side. Whilst parents sit with the main congregation, we want to foster an environment of inclusion between the generations. The Bible teaches us that a connection and relationship between the generations is vital in helping children learn about life, specifically life as a Christian and the faith God invites us to explore.

The service itself consists a time of worship – singing songs to God and a message from the bible – Christian biblical principles we can apply to living today.

HOW LONG ARE SUNDAY SERVICES?

Its about 90 minutes. You can stay afterwards and get to know us.

02.

WHAT DO KIDS DO DURING THE SERVICE?

Before the service the kids and parents come together to have a joint sunday school session. This session with a sunday school teacher helps parents and children learn together and encourage strong family bonds.
During the worship time and the sermon the kids stay with us in the Church and do craft activity to explore their creativity. We believe the whole church should be together to reach across the generations.

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 pray openly inbetween the worship songs to build and encourage one another, but mainly to give thanks God.

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.

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.

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 and living God who eternally exists in three persons in unity: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The Divine inspiration and authority of the Holy Scripture.
The original perfection of creation; the inherent corruptness of humanity through the Fall; the necessity of repentance and regeneration by grace and through faith in Christ alone, and the eternal separation from God of the finally unrepentant.

The virgin Birth, sinless life, atoning death, triumphant Resurrection, ascension and continuing intercession of our Lord Jesus Christ, His Second Coming, and eternal Kingdom reign.
The Sacrament of Baptism by immersion, and of the Lord's Supper.
The justification and sanctification of believers through the finished work of Christ, their security as they remain in Him, and their future resurrection in an incorruptible body.

The baptism of the Holy Spirit for believers with supernatural signs, empowering the Church for its mission in the world. The gifts of the Holy Spirit for the building up of the Church and ministry to the world. Christ's leadership of the Church through the ascension ministries of apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers for the unity, maturity, and growth of the Church.

The privilege and responsibility of wise stewardship of all that God has given, including the practice of tithing to the local church.
