The Vines Uniting Church (Woodcroft)
152 Reynell Road, Woodcroft
"Reaching out in love"
Sunday Morning worship
9.30am Sunday (Holy Communion on the first Sunday of each month)
Our Mission: We believe that God is calling us... "To be a vibrant, growing community of faith, reaching out in God's love bringing others to Christ."
Our Core Values: As a Community of Faith we recognise our frailty and our dependence on God's Grace in our lives, and we value ~ The Centrality of Christ and His Will for us
The head of our church is the Lord Jesus Christ, the incarnate and risen Son of God, who is the founder and foundation of our faith. We aim to be always focused on discerning and doing the will of God, and therefore we are willing to try new things and to step out in faith when the Holy Spirit leads us.
Bible - centered teaching: We receive the Bible as God's inspired Word which speaks to us with authority. We aim to teach God's Word with integrity so that seekers discover the living Christ and believers mature in their faith and relationship with God.
Active Prayer: We believe that prayer is a central aspect of a living relationship with God. Believing that God hears and answers prayer, the ministries and activities of this Church will be characterised by the priority of prayer in their conception, planning and execution.
Authentic Worship: We celebrate and declare God's love for us in corporate worship which aims to be well prepared, well led and relevant to people's life and faith.
Developing People: We encourage people to discover, develop and deploy their God-given gifts.
A Warm and Caring Community: We aim to be a community in which both members and newcomers find a warm welcome and genuine care. One important way in which this is expressed is through our network of small groups which enable people to build deeper relationships with each other by sharing, praying, learning and loving together.
Sharing Good News: We are called to communicate the good news of Jesus Christ to other people and to enable them to enter into a relationship with God. To this end we offer various programs, ministries and practical service through which we connect with the current needs and lifestyles of the wider community.
