We have started construction of our church building project

This means that we won't be meeting at Margot St between December 2021 and November 2022 inclusive.
When we hold in-person services they will be at the Burwood Adventist Community Church (see this page for details)

To stay up to date with our plans, please check here or join our online community www.encounterbaptist.church
We have restarted our in-person services.  They will also be live-streamed for those who don't yet feel comfortable coming in person.  For streaming details please visit our services page.

On the weeks when we don't have in-person services, our church gathers in homes. In coming weeks that will be on 30/10 and 13/11.
Details are available in our online community (www.encounterbaptist.church)
Alternatively, you can request location details by sending us your phone/email.  We would love to see you.

A Shared Passion

Build friendships and explore faith

We encourage everyone to participate in what God is doing, in the midst of the messiness of life. As a result, missional groups focused on discipleship are the heart of our community. Ultimately, we love seeing people changed through genuine encounters with God.
