Vineyard Fellowships usually celebrate Christmas and Easter in worship, but do not otherwise follow the Christian year.
The Vineyard assemblies are marked by contemporary musical forms in a praise-and-worship style. After a period of development along these lines, some Vineyards are rediscovering the hymns and songs of the historic church. Of the other arts in worship, the Vineyards are making a unique contribution to dance in worship, in the form of free and spontaneous dance rather than formal liturgical dance. Vineyard leadership must “release” dancers to perform their ministry, thereby screening out dance that is inappropriate for worship.
Vineyard worship is based on the belief and affirmation that God has commanded us to worship (Exod. 23:24, 25; Ps. 96:8–9; Matt. 4:8–10).
