Location & Worship Times

We are no longer meeting together for worship gatherings, and are bringing the Encounter Church ministry to a close. Click here to read more.

A Church Without A Building

As a new community of faith, Encounter does not possess a building of it's own to gather for worship. This presents both opportunities and challenges.

It reminds us that church is not a building or an event, but a people and a lifestyle of faith. It reminds us that following Jesus takes place in every aspect of our lives.

We have been fortunate to meet at several unique and outstanding locations in Helena such as Exploration Works and the Dunphy Building downtown. And currently we are gathering Sunday mornings at the historic Pattern House.

At each location we've gathered, we've been intentional to create an atmosphere that is authentic, welcoming, and unique — so that people can encounter God in a real and tangible way.

Our Current Gathering Location

Encounter's current gathering location, the Pattern House, has been vacant for several years. Right now we have the opportunity to use the building until a new owner is found.

The Pattern House is located in the heart of Helena, just one block east of "Malfunction Junction" at the corner of Montana Avenue and Helena Avenue.
