Encounter Youth cranks every Friday night during the school term from 7-9:15pm. We are a family that loves, honours and serves both people and God. We mix it up on Friday's with live worship, speakers, games, performances and massive outings and social nights! Encounter Youth is a place for everyone from school year 7 to 18 years old.
Encounter Adults & Families
We love people, love adventure and love the power and presence of God! We have a place for you, and are passionate about bringing everyone into a dynamic encounter with Jesus Christ.
As a church we believe in Christ’s Great Commission to preach the gospel, baptise believers and make disciples of all nations. Corporately we are mission focused with active, relevant and effective involvement in evangelism both local and overseas.
As well as supporting several missionaries and missions overseas, we are passionate about sending teams of people on short term missions trips. These are life changing experiences and we encourage everyone to GO...

At Encounter Kids we run a range of age specific programmes to ensure your children build their own identity in Christ while also having heaps of fun and forming strong friendships that will last. As your child grows, they will transition through the different programmes along with other children the same age.
Encounter Young Adults
Encounter Young Adults is about living for something bigger than ourselves! We believe we are designed to be fearless, free and fulfilled in Jesus Christ, and we are passionate about seeing young adults’ lives transformed.
We are passionate about bringing people into a dynamic encounter with Jesus Christ through powerful praise and worship. We have an amazing team of gifted, talented musicians and singers who provide anointed praise and worship for all Encounter services, conferences and events.
With our own recording studio in the venue, we continue to focus on creating an atmosphere where original praise & worship songs can be written, recorded & made available easily, quickly & inexpensively.

Encounter Community Reach
We love our local community of Avondale and this is expressed through a number of great initiatives. From the Walk, Talk & Pray team that goes out into the community every fortnight connecting with the locals, to special events like the Avondale Light Party and the Avondale Community Christmas Carnival. We have a lot of fun while also showing God's love to the people and families in our local community.
