Welcome to the Vine
We're glad you're here!
The Vine is a group for high schoolers where we make new friends, deepen old friendships, have lots of fun and together work out what life’s about, as Jesus tells it.
The Vine meets on Fridays (year 7-12) and on Sunday mornings (year 6-9). Now physical distancing measures have been relaxed for youth (but not for leaders!), we're getting back into a more regular Friday program. Sunday Vine continues online as our 10 am service is still online too.
Vine Fridays in Term 3
Vine is back for Term 3 on Friday nights, 6:30-8:30 pm!
We meet at 6:30, play a some big games together, hear a great talk from the Bible, break into small groups for some discussion and then come back together for supper. As the term progresses, we plan to go back to the way we started the year - with dinner all together before we begin. This term we're looking at the Old Testament book of Hosea, which is all about our relationship with God from his perspective. If you've never been before, we'd love to welcome you along! Here are a couple of things to bear in mind as you come to Vine:
- Enter through the south church door (facing Water St)
- Be ready to sanitise on arrival!
- Bring your own Bible and pen
- Don't come if you're feeling unwell, showing symptoms or have travelled to one of the COVID hotspots
- You don't have to pre-register, but please get in touch if you have any questions
You can find out more about our COVID Safety Plan here.
Stampede T-Shirt Design Competition
We're running a competition to design the t-shirt for our camp at the end of term 3! We need a large design for the back and also a smaller one that will appear in the pocket area on the front. The best one will be printed for all to wear!
- Get your design in by the 31st of July
- Submit 2 designs - one for the front and one for the back
- Click here to upload the design once you're done
Sundays: Vine Church Online
In term 3, Vine Church (for years 6-9) will be online again during the morning church livestream! Morning church is still too big to meet all together before our building work is finished, so while the service is livestreamed, Vine will be on Zoom! We'll spend some time catching up and praying together, and looking at the book of Daniel in the Old Testament, which is all about how God's kingdom is the ultimate kingdom. The details are:
- Sundays, 10 am - 11 am (during the 10 am service livestream, online from 9:45 am)

St Andrew’s Youth Camp for high schoolers + year 6 is on during the spring school holidays. This year camp is on the 8th-11th of October, and we're hopeful we'll be able to go away together, given restrictions. Whatever happens, we'll be doing something great during this time, so keep the weekend free!
We normally go to KYCK (Katoomba Youth Convention for high schoolers) in the Easter holidays, but sadly didn’t go this year due to the coronavirus outbreak. We still got to be part of KYCK Live, though, and you can still order a hoodie.
We have a team of great leaders at the Vine! They're all followers of Jesus, and they're all really friendly. Here's a picture of them at the beach.
