We see Encounter Church as a church where everyone can encounter the Holy Spirit and
discover God’s purpose for their lives.


It all started with 12 people in 1982. Here we are, nearly four decades later, meeting in 4 locations with the same passion to see God build His Church in our towns and cities. At each location you'll find a bunch of real people who believe God has the power to transform our lives.

The Community of Encounter Church

Our Senior Pastors, Chris and Christine Collins, arrived in February 2019 with a bang, ushering in a new season of bold faith, developing a culture of encounter, and reminding everyone that it’s all lived out as family.

The 4 pillars of our church are salvation, discipleship, restoration and rain. For every person that calls Encounter Church home we long to see their lives discipled and restored through a personal relationship with Jesus, and encounters with the Holy Spirit.

Our Services are lively! We desire each person to receive impartation, leaving inspired to live out their faith every day. We believe in the Word of God and desire people to know and grow further in their understanding.

Plus, we have many activities including Encounter Kids on Sundays, young adult connect groups, a monthly women’s cafe morning, men’s breakfast cook-ups, Heroes gatherings for our seniors, and our weekly Friday Youth program.

We’re a bunch of real people with a deep hunger for God. You’re welcome to join us, Sundays at 10am.
