Strength – Young Families at Encompass

Strength is the Young Families ministry within Encompass Church. If you have at least one child between the ages of 0-12, then Strength is for you.

We believe in strengthening families by encouraging each person in their growing relationship with Jesus Christ, promoting meaningful connections and friendships with other families and family discipleship through marriage and parenting courses, and regular life groups.

Life Groups

Life Groups are how we build community and make our church feel smaller and more personal. The Strength Life Group runs once a month on a Friday evening, and child minding for children between 2 and 12 is provided free of charge. It focuses on running family focused bible studies that aim to empower families.

The Alpha Marriage & Marriage Preparation Courses

The Alpha Marriage Preparation and Marriage Courses have a global reach. Thousands of couples all over the world have benefited from these practical and insightful courses.

The Strength team at Encompass Church hosts these courses once a year and they run for about 5-7 weeks, one night a week.

Parents Lounge at Fun Friday Events

Fun Friday’s run on the last Friday of every school holiday (This may change in January and other months where public holidays may interfere). It is a FREE-entry event for primary school aged kids and their parents. It offers a movie screening, snacks, activities, prizes and a light supper for parents.

Parenting Seminar / Camp

The Strength team at Encompass Church are looking to host and run its first family overnight camp in 2014. A date, venue and costs are yet to be finalised, as it will be dependent upon numbers.
