-Core values are the constant, passionate, biblical beliefs that drive the ministry… core values help a church to act based on who they are. (Aubrey Maphurs) 

At Encounter Church; alongside our mission, vision & beliefs… we particularly value… 


  • WELCOME & HOSPITALITY (being open hearted, generous, and non-judgemental)
  • TOGETHERNESS (building family, community & friendship as we journey in Christ) 
  • CORPORATE WORSHIP (Celebrating God’s love and goodness as we dwell in His presence).  
  • DIVERSITY (We enjoy being a church of people all-ages, from different backgrounds, made up of many nationalities)
  • EXPECTATION (That God will work in and through us by the power, presence and leading of the Holy Spirit)
