The Vines Uniting Church: “Reaching out in God’s Love”
Our Mission: We believe that God is calling us … “To be a vibrant, growing community reaching out in God’s love.”
Our Core Values:
As a community of faith we recognise our dependence upon God’s Grace.
THE CENTRALITY OF CHRIST:
Jesus is Lord and we will continue to try new things and to step out in faith when the Holy Spirit leads us.
BIBLE – CENTRED TEACHING:
We aim to live and teach God’s Word with integrity, so that seekers discover the living Christ and believers mature in their faith and relationship with God.
Prayer is a central aspect of a living relationship with God. Believing that God hears and answers prayer is a vital part of our ministries and activities within this Church.
We celebrate and declare God’s love for us in corporate worship in ways that are relevant to people’s life and faith.
We encourage people to discover, develop and deploy their God-given gifts within the church and everyday living in the wider community.
A WARM and CARING COMMUNITY:
We are a community in which both members and newcomers find a warm welcome and genuine care. Our network of small groups and activities enables people to build deeper relationships with each other by sharing, praying, learning and loving together.
SHARING GOOD NEWS:
“Reaching out in God’s love” shapes our various programs, ministries and practical service, aiming to connect with the current needs and lifestyles of the wider community.
