Established in 2014, Encounter is a thriving, young, dynamic Christian church. We are a diverse mix of people from the surrounding areas and beyond. Our heart is to see people living full and fruitful lives by encountering Jesus, understanding who they really are and living that out.
Encounter Church loves God, Jesus and The Holy Spirit. We are passionate about honouring God through our worship, prayer and time together. We believe that through a real encounter with God's manifest presence, we can be transformed, healed and restored. 
We value prophecy, we value honour and we value the miraculous. We are hungry to see God's Kingdom advance. For people to go beyond their limitations by following their callings. For every corner of the world to hear the Good News!
As a body of believers, we do family and life together by studying God's word, seeking God's presence and loving each other and those around us.
