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 18-23 to serve for up to two years with a world church partner.
This year we are looking to run two trips, one at the beginning of the summer and one towards the end. More information coming soon!
Taizé 2018: 23 June - 3 July
The group travelled to Taizé, France, from Cliff College and joined the community for a week.
The focus of the Taizé trip was to:
- Experience a week as part of the Taizé community.
- Spend time focussed on God, growing in discipleship, and demonstrating our commitment to Jesus and one another.
- Abide by all the rules of Taizé, as part of the community, and take part in manual work – directed by Taizé staff.
Haiti 2017: 25 July - 4 August
In July/August 2017 a group travelled to Haiti in partnership with World Church Relationships
