Kia Ora whānau!

We are praying you are doing well in your bubbles. With the speed of everything that happened over this last week, we have decided to go live online this Sunday at 10am. For those who do not have a church to attend online, we would love to host you!

Using platforms such as Zoom, you could gather friends virtually, get comfy, and watch church online together, because although we are unable to be in the same room, community is still important.

Though once again these times seem uncertain, and may cause anxiety to some, take heart and place your hope in the God that never changes.
Arohanui, family!

“The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.”
Psalms 18:2 NIV

[07/15/21]   Please pray into the dire situation in South Africa.
Some of our extended church family including Peter and Natalie, Stephan and Veronica, friends and people in the local community including ministers have loved ones affected and are deeply concerned for their well-being. There is wide spread anarchy, looting and shootings. Pray for the rule of law to be restored and that God will bring a mighty wave of revival and reformation.

Great to see Peter Smith steppin up at O2 church, Tauranga.
We’ve been spinning some fishing yarns at Encounter recently too PJ Smith , especially about your namesake Peter’s two great hauls (with the help of Jesus of course) and no broken net the second time round in John 21. We love that!

[05/21/21]   PENTECOST! 🔥🔥🔥
It’s an important week on the calendar of Pentecostal churches as we celebrate that most extraordinary event in Acts chapter two, the outpouring of the Holy Spirit - tongues of fire, a mighty rushing wind, apparent inebriation and strange talk 😅.
This Sunday at Encounter at 10am courtesy of Youtube, our guest speaker is a messianic rabbi who will be sharing some amazing insights about the past and present significance of the First Fruits/Pentecost festivals.

It’s church as usual in the cafe Sundays at 10am.
The library staff are making great progress and the auditorium is starting to look like... well.., a library! 😁

We were sad to farewell a beautiful family today, Stephan Germishuys , Veronica, Mila and Nolan who are moving to Hamilton. Stephan is taking up a teaching position at Hamilton Boys High School which has a roll of 2300 pupils.
We know his skills, talents and great nature will be greatly appreciated by his peers and the school’s pupils.
We will really miss the vibrancy the family brought to us and know they will be a great blessing to those they connect with.
Also a huge thank you to Stephan for coordinating Encounter’s furniture shift a couple of weekends ago with the help of some of Gore High School’s rugby players and coaches.

WE HAVE A BIG BOOKING!

From April 12 we begin a lease which will see the Gore District Library start to move into our auditorium, foyer and some offices for around 12 - 15 months while the library in the council’s civic building is significantly redeveloped.

The library will open in the church on May 6 and will operate completely independently of the church’s activities.

We are delighted to be able to fill this need in the community and the church leadership is excited about the present and future of Encounter New Life.

Church will be held as usual on Sunday’s at 10am in our cafe, and Encounter Art Hub will also continue as usual.

We would like to thank the library and council staff for being so great to work with during the planning stages of the lease.

Encounter Jesus with us this Easter Sunday, 10am 11 Jacob St, Gore.
Join us for worship, the Word and communion led by Kay Lawton, followed by morning tea with hot cross buns.
Don’t forget to put your clocks back for the end of daylight saving!

In 1 Peter 2:24 it tells us that He himself bore our sins, our guilt and our death. All these were once powerful and final - but they are cancelled forever because the work of our beautiful Saviour!

What He bore on the cross, this act of great love then covered us for all our debts.

Today and every day we thank God for what He did on the cross, bearing the weight of our sin that we deserved, but He took it all so that we could live in His love forever.

Gore’s annual Crosswalk, organised by the Gore Minister’s Association, is a positive witness to the community and a show of unity among the local churches. It’s also a great opportunity to catch up and have a chat with people from other churches!
The walk stopped at eight prayer stations where reflections of Jesus’ journey to Calvary and a prayer were read at each station.
This year there was a focus on the global plight of refugees, migrants and those whose destitution make them targets for exploitation, especially women and children, the stateless, unhoused, sick and orphaned.

This Cross Walk on Good Friday is a positive withness to the community and enjoyable time of fellowship with people from other churches. Hope you can make it!

A very special day for us today as we commissioned Rebekah (Bek) Johnstone as an elder, with our regional leaders Wayne Ward and Judy Ward in support 🙂

Bek has been an amazing blessing to the church family and the leadership since she joined us nearly three years ago as well as being so much fun to have around!

It was great to have some special guests join us to witness Bek’s commissioning including her mother and grandmother and Kudos to Veronicas Flowers here in Gore for the amazing flower arrangement we presented to Bek!

We are excited and delighted to be hosting Steve and Sally Carnie this Sunday morning at 10am.
Steve and Sally have recently retired from their senior pastor's role at Napier Christian Fellowship but remain on-staff.
Steve is part of a Christian family lineage that was birthed when his parents committed their lives to Christ during the 1960's Gore revival.
He carries a prophetic anointing, so join us for some great fellowship and Holy Spirit inspired ministry!

Stephan Germishuys and Lesley Fredric put in some hard yards today at the Hokonui Moonshine Trail. Hopefully Stephan has plenty of gas left in the tank to bring his first sermon at Encounter in the morning. Crossing the finish line he was heard uttering “I died three times.” Sounds like a great communion message!

There’s nothing like starting early in life; Nolan could be our next great preacher but he will have to at least wait until his Dad, Stephan Germishuys brings the Word this Sunday!

It was great to be encouraged by some testimonies last Sunday and to be reminded how God's hand is on our lives in ways we don't see at times, but how He often leaves a trail of breadcrumbs leading us to the cross, whether for salvation or during a time of need.

We are also so blessed and encouraged to be experiencing a wonderful presence of God during our services - feel free to join us Sunday mornings 10am.
