2024 VIC Vineyard National Gathering

26-28 September 2024

Jesus, we say Yes!

The Kingdom of God journey begins with giving Jesus the ‘YES’ of our heart.  The Kingdom of God journey lasts the long story by giving Jesus our ‘YES’ in our everyday lives.

Discipleship to Jesus is the adventure of relationship with a loving God who is on mission to rescue and reconcile people and all of creation to himself, both now and into the days to come.  The daily life of being changed by God’s love, empowered by His Spirit and equipped to give God’s love to the people around us.

This year’s Vineyard National Gathering will be a significant time.  The Holy Spirit is renewing the people of Jesus, individually and His Church.  There is a fresh move of God asking for the ‘YES’ of our heart and the ‘YES’ of our daily life.  That our life with Jesus would live into a better story than what our current world and culture offers.

We look forward to joining with you and spending time in Worship, Opening the Bible and doing the Works of the Spirit.  There is a great line up of speakers and equippers ready to share their life and learnings. 

Jesus, we say YES!
