Founding Pastors


Phil and Kath Henry founded Northridge Vineyard Church in 1997, and over 23 years did a wonderful job of leading the church. 

Phil and Kath stepped down as Senior Pastors at the end of March 2021. Rob and Bonnie Giles, who worked alongside Phil and Kath for 8 years, accepted the offer from the Northridge Board to become the new Senior Pastors.

The Board and the church are tremendously grateful to God for Kath and Phil. Their witness has been a great blessing to so many people and organisations in so many ways. Phil and Kath strongly support and bless Rob and Bonnie as the new Senior Pastors. 

Following their time in leadership, Phil and Kath were engaged for one day a week in the role of ‘founding pastors’ and an ongoing blessing to the Vineyard movement in Australia, internationally, and to other denominations. Their focus was on training and mentoring both existing and potential leaders within the Vineyard movement, continuing their roles with the Vineyard College, organising and leading retreats, supporting church growth across the Vineyard movement in Australia and other tasks and roles (such as conducting weddings and funerals) as invited.

Phil & Kath’s role of founding pastors came to an end at the end of 2022. They would value prayers for them in this new season and would be delighted to stay in touch. They can be contacted at [email protected].
