Encounter services – What are they?




.............and coffee....lots of coffee..

4th Sundays at St. Martin's Church Desford are a bit different:

We spend plenty of time singing songs of praise, led by the band, the worship is extremely relaxed
and informal, witha mix of contemporary and traditional songs.

We also place great importance on understanding the Word, so we have very short bursts of
applied teaching. With regular use of videos and illustrations, these services are vary varied and engaging.
There is also plenty of space for us to pray for ourselves, our community, our nation and our world.

Children are very welcome at Encounter services and our open-plan area means that there is
plenty of space for pushchairs. All of the song words and any visuals are
presented on the Church's large screens, leaving your hands free.
There is also a very friendly and inclusive atmosphere.

Whether you are a church regular or a newcomer, just come as you are.
