We are a group of people who are learning to be ‘presence led’ rather than ‘programme driven’. This means that, above all activities, we give priority to the pursuit of God’s presence. One expression of this pursuit are our Encounter-Life nights.

We meet every Thursday during term-times at the Elim Building for a time of teaching and extended worship, making plenty of space for listening for our Father’s voice, and for praying for each other, our church, and our city. The evenings kick-off at 7pm with teaching based on a key element of discipleship, and then at 8pm we transition into worship and ministry. During the autumn term we run from Thursday 26th September through to the end of November.
