Who We Are

Welcome to Viva

Viva Vineyard is a local church community, helping people discover Jesus.

Join us on  Sundays at 4:00pm @ Unit 3, 67-71 Jersey Street, Hornsby. Sundays has a kids program. Youth happens on Sundays and on Fridays.

If you are exploring Jesus or new to the area and looking for a church, we’d love to connect.

Our office is located in downtown Hornsby, 1/244 Peats Ferry Rd, Hornsby. Drop in for a chat.

If we can help in anyway let us know.

Meet our pastors

We have the privilege of serving as pastors at Viva.  We do what we do because we believe Jesus changes lives, in beautiful, powerful and profound ways. 

We live locally in Hornsby. We have two great teen kids. And a very energetic Border Collie.

We love the incredible outdoor playground that surrounds our suburbs. 

God upended our lives in our late teens. We met and married pretty young. God called us to Central Asia where we founded and lead a charity serving the poor of that region. We both speak Russian as a second language. We love the multicultural flavour of Hornsby. 

Since returning from Central Asia, Andrew has worked in non-profits and commercially to see modern slavery ended. 

Andrew has an MA in Global Leadership from Fuller Seminary and an undergraduate degree in Political Economy.  

Over the last few years Sarah’s worked as a book-keeper and runs a veg co-op. 

We are both employed by Viva part-time. We pray Viva is a community where you can discover Jesus afresh. 


Introducing our new Youth & Young Adults Pastor

My name is Kevin Kim, an Australian-born Korean. I joined Viva Vineyard Church as a youth and young adults pastor in March 2024. My wife Sally and I live locally. We’ve always had a vision to disciple and set up the next generation, so Viva Vineyard Church was an answer to our prayers!

Prior to Viva, I attended a church in Greenacre for almost 30 years and served in various roles. I served as a youth teacher for almost 4 years, worship leader for 12 years and young adults leader for 5 years. Sally and I also had the privilege of establishing new ministries for the church including ‘Keen Beans’ (a team which served coffee and tea to allow fellowship before service), a young adults ministry on Friday nights and an events team (organising major church events such as conferences and camps).

I’ve also worked at a large non-profit organisation which had a vision to be a spirit-led disciple-making movement.

I graduated from Macquarie University, Majoring in Communications and Contemporary Music. I also have an Undergraduate Certificate of Theology from Morling College.

Fun fact about me: I have a huge passion for filmmaking and coffee brewing!



I am Eleanor Formaggio. I have had the pleasure of working with families for over 20 years, in a formal setting, as a counsellor, group facilitator and parent educator with a degree in Applied Social Science. And informally, perhaps most beneficially, in my role as a wife, and a mother to three sons, two now are young men, in their 20’s and a teenager. 

My passion for sharing the word of God and the love of Jesus has driven me to support families in building strong, faith-centred relationships. This dedication led me to author “HELD: A Mother’s Journey of Praying for a Prodigal,” a heartfelt story about my teen son’s journey to salvation and the lessons I learned about unconditional love, prayer, and reliance on God. 

I am excited to be a part of Viva’s vision for creating a nurturing environment where children can thrive spiritually and emotionally.
