Encounter Church is a life-giving Christian church located in the East End of Pittsburgh.
Our desire is to create an authentic and intimate space where you and your family can experience God in relevant ways and begin to express the grace and mercy of Jesus Christ through the East End, Pittsburgh, and the world!


We meet weekly at:
Neighborhood Academy
709 N Aiken Ave, Pittsburgh, PA 15206

Nestled in between 6 of Pittsburgh's most residential neighborhoods, the Neighborhood Academy is easily accessible from both Penn Ave or Negley Ave., and the 87S, 75, 89, 71A, 88, 71B, 71C, 77L, 82, 74, and 86 buses have stops nearby. If you are driving, we have a parking lot for your convenience.
