Encounter Events

Encounter camp is an annual opportunity for those with life controlling issues to meet with God and see significant breakthrough in their lives. Set in rural Worcestershire, men and women from projects and churches all over the UK get together to spend a week in a safe, friendly and fun environment. Over the years people have returned with stories of the difference the week has made in their lives. Some are unable to return as they have moved on such that they have work commitments. One project leader commented that what would normally take 9 months he saw happen in 5 days. We believe that God cares for broken people and desires to see them made whole. Encounter is a place we believe this happens.

Isaiah 61 - The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has annointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the broken hearted to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners...They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the LORD for the display of his splendour.

We aim to provide an environment for broken people to encounter God and be SET FREE!

Who is Encounter for?

Enounter is for anyone with life controlling issues that need a breakthough from God. Any age male or female.

Life after Encounter

We believe that God has promised us that during the five day camp He will bring about amazing breakthrough. It is important that any healing or change God may bring is about a lasting impact. Therefore everyone attending Encounter needs to be part of a Church or Christian project and attend with someone responsible for their pastoral care so that on-going support can take place.
