Encounter Church is a life-giving Christian church located in the Lawrenceville community 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 Lawrenceville, Pittsburgh, and the world!


We meet weekly at:
Row House Cinema
4115 Butler St, Pittsburgh, PA 15201
(Between PNC Bank and Gerbe Glass)

Just across the 40th Street Bridge in Lawrenceville, the Row House Cinema is easily accessible from both Butler Street or Penn Ave., and the 91, 93, and 88 buses have stops nearby on each. If you are driving, there is free street parking throughout Lawrenceville on Sundays.
