About Our Church
by Robin Horn, Pastor of Southside Vineyard
Our journey in South Auckland has been one of building an authentic multi-ethnic or multi-cultural community.
Roughly 80% of marriages in Southside Vineyard are cross-cultural, with most of our people from Pacific Island origin and Pakeha in the minority.
For me, coming from a fairly red-neck, middle-class family and having no contact with Maori or Pacific people, coming to South Auckland to plant was like going on the mission field, not knowing the culture and all the protocols and pitfalls that go with it. So it’s been a continual learning curve and at times God has confronted the prejudices in my own heart and the dominance of my own white culture.
