Vineyard Story

What is a “Vineyard” Church?

On one hand you could say Vineyard churches are like most Christian Churches, on the other hand you could say it is ‘church like you haven’t seen it before!’

Vineyard churches are based on the same beliefs as the more traditional churches, however, we like to ‘do church’ in a way that makes sense in our current culture. Our music tends to be new and fresh (and sometimes loud!) We prefer to relate in a relaxed and simple way. We want to be a community in the same way Jesus established community with His disciples and that continued to develop in the early Church of the New Testament. We also place a huge value on being ‘real’ with one another, and look for God to do very real and supernatural works among us.

Our History

The Vineyard Movement began with just a few churches in America some twenty years ago. It has now grown to include more than 1200 churches in 65 different countries throughout the world. The Vineyard Australia was established in the mid-nineties and YVV was one of the first Vineyard churches in Australia.  If you would like more information about Vineyard churches in Australia please follow this link.
