Our heart is to be generous at Encounter Church
We are all about building a life that is about 'us' rather than 'me'; to be people who are constantly asking where we can contribute to people's lives and within our communities. We do this by displaying a welcoming hospitality environment and by being big-hearted with our time, our skills our finances and our hearts.

The Encounter Futures Fund is our version of what some churches call a ‘miracle offering’ or a ‘second mile’ giving project. It will only be collected once a year and is separate from the regular tithing and giving that many of you do. It is an opportunity for us to have an annual, intentional heart-led sacrifice to invest in building the future church.
God will often put the challenge of joy-filled generosity before His church. It was the challenge as David & Solomon build the First Temple, in 1 Chronicles. It was the motivation for the temple rebuild in Nehemiah 10. It was the encouragement of Paul as he collects money from the churches in 1 & 2 Corinthians and Romans to give to the church in Jerusalem.
Most of all, it is an opportunity to hear God’s voice and lay our finances humbly before Him.
This Fund is currently being used to finance one of our two new Pastoral roles for 2021-2023, our Generations Pastor and Creative Pastor.
The Encounter Futures Fund is a totally separate bank account to your regular giving.
