GLOCAL

Glocal

At New Vine, we take Jesus’ command to ‘Go and make disciples of all nations’ seriously. GLOCAL is our response to the Great Commission as we commit to living and serving beyond the walls of our church in both global and local contexts.

The essence of GLOCAL is our desire to make a difference in our community, our city, our  nation and the world by allowing the timeless truths of God’s Word to shape the way we think and live.

Each Sunday in May, we focus on mission and encourage New Viners to get involved as their expression of extending God’s kingdom: Go, Give and Pray.

Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.

Matthew 28:19-20
one point six million dollars raised through GLOCAL

 

First launched in 2003, New Viners raised $58,100 for GLOCAL in the first year. In the 14 years that GLOCAL has been running since, we’ve raised a total of $1.6 million. This money has allowed us to fund projects and send people both locally and globally to declare the good news of the gospel. We believe that following Jesus is the way to experience life in all its fullness, and we’re committed to helping others discover a personal relationship with Him.
