First Time Visitor

On this page, you will find some information about the Vine.

What kind of Church is VCC?

q
The Vine is a Bible believing church who believe that Jesus Christ is Lord. We have a strong focus on worship and faith based teaching. There is a strong emphasis on being a Christian family and we believe God wants us to be a church where people love each other, and love those outside the church

What can I expect if I come on a Sunday?

q
A normal Sunday service at the Vine consists of a time of praise and worship where we glorify God and enjoy being in His presence. Our worship leaders use contemporary and traditional worship songs. There may also be prophesies and prophetic songs. Our praise and worship is expressive and you may see people raising their hands and expressing their love for Jesus in an exuberant way.
There will also be preaching based on the Bible which will be faith-filled and relevant to what God is saying to the church. During this time children and youth will go to their own groups.
After the service people fellowship together with coffee and cake. This is a great time to catch up with friends or make some new ones. We have a special table for visitors where we serve complimentary refreshments & cake, you can meet some of the members of the church and find out more about us. We want you to encounter Jesus and leave knowing that you are loved.

Is your building accessible to disabled visitors?

q
We have level access on our ground floor with a disabled W.C. and a hearing loop system in the main auditorium. The first floor is used on Sundays for the youth and younger children’s groups. Every assistance will be provided for any disabled child or parent who needs access upstairs.
