At Encounter church we greatly enjoy meeting together each Sunday. Following a warm welcome, we engage in vibrant praise & worship involving some of the most familiar and also contemporary songs being used around the world.

After our time of worship, there will be a talk based on the bible about our experiences of following Jesus that’s practical and relevant to everyday life. Sunday mornings regularly include communion, personal testimony, and opportunity for personal prayer and reflection.

Welcome & Refreshments: When you arrive, a member of our Welcome Team will be available to answer any questions you may have. At the end of the service, we invite you to stick around for coffee & tea, and other refreshments.

Encounter Kids: For children preschool age (the term after they turn 3) until they finish Primary School (Yr 6) meet on Sunday mornings for their specially tailored program of activities. Each session looks at a particular topic that very much caters to this age group and lasts until the end of the main service at 12.20pm.

Encounter Youth: For young people in Secondary School and 6th form/ College. Youth meet every Sunday in the coffee lounge and offering a great opportunity for young people to have fun and build good friendships whilst exploring how to apply the Bible’s teaching to their own lives.

For three Sundays of month children & young people join with the first part of the service before going out for their own programs at approximately 11.30am. (On the first Sunday of each month, they go directly to their zones for the full duration of the service.)
