It's in community that we grow as individuals. Through good + healthy relationships, we can 'knock the edges' off one another. We help each other to grow in wisdom through sharing our life experiences and different perspectives.
The Vine Community aims to provide safe spaces for us to explore who we are spiritually & emotionally. That might happen when we gather socially, or when we meet with more people of our age and background around the area. It might be that you want to explore questions about life, and you want to ask and listen with others thinking similar things. Or maybe you already have faith and want to nurture it with other disciples. Wherever you are, we want to help you network with others, with no pressure!
Growing together also means unity...
Our leaders are all Christians, which doesn't mean we think we've got all the answers. But it does mean that we have done some spiritual searching, and we are committed to helping others explore too.
The concept for the Vine was born from a passage in the New Testament in the bible. In John chapter 15, Jesus describes how his disciples will only bear fruit unless they are joined with him. Jesus promises us life in all its abundance (Jn 10:10), we believe that this comes through getting to know Jesus through the bible and with help from others. We hope to also grow in knowing how much we are loved and unconditionally accepted by God.
