ONE Encounter


ONE Encounter provides opportunities for young people to be part of a short-term visit that enables them to encounter a different part of the world, a different way of life, or some other experience to open and broaden their minds.

It is an opportunity to encourage reflection, consider calling and support growth in discipleship.

ONE Encounter is supported by World Church, the Encounter Together programme and Encounter Worldwide, which offers part-funded opportunities for Methodists aged 18-26 to serve for up to two years with a world church partner.
