11-13 October 2019 Can Truy, St. Eulalia, Ibiza
Here, as it is in Heaven.
A move of worshippers that seeks only this:
To worship Jesus and be united in the oneness of God’s Spirit!
The Encens Gathering is a three day worship event encompassing continuous praise, prophecy, healing, workshops and wonder. Now in its third year, we continue to seek God in a glorious atmosphere of creativity, joy and unity. Come and worship the one true God of Ibiza with us again this year!
". . . THE TIME HAS NOW COME WHEN THE TRUE WORSHIPPERS WILL WORSHIP THE FATHER IN THE SPIRIT AND IN TRUTH, FOR THESE ARE THE KIND OF WORSHIPPERS THE FATHER SEEKS." John 4.23
We believe the appointed time for Ibiza has come! We are beginning to see the promises and long-awaited prophetic visions come to pass. We are seeing and will continue to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. She, Ibiza, is becoming all that the Father intended!!!
The vision is simple. Our call? To build an altar of true worship, lifting up our voices boldly so they will be heard throughout the land. Our desire is for Jesus to be the centre of all we do. Encens is simply an offering, an outpouring from laid down hearts in worship. We believe that through Encens, God’s Spirit can draw people, communities, ministries and individuals (both local, national and international) together, with one heart and purpose – to worship Him and see His Kingdom come. Here, on earth as it is in Heaven.
The New Sound
We come together to celebrate His love and Oneness. We desire and seek to cultivate an atmosphere of freedom, where all are accepted and embraced. We choose to celebrate the unique diversity amongst us; to savour the flavours each one brings.
We believe as we come together to do this, a ‘New Sound’ and a ‘New Song’ will be released that will draw people back ‘home’ to the Lord and to His cross. This ‘New Sound’ carries the DNA of heaven and of the Father’s Heart. This sound, will resonate within hearts and on the earth as the Voice of the Father, calling His sons and daughters home.
Since the first Encens, we have seen God knitting hearts together; working through churches and individuals to form a strong net. We believe that this net, will cover the whole island. This has been a long-awaited prophecy over the island that many have sensed over the years. We are now beginning to witness this promise unfolding before us.
We believe that as we surrender to becoming one unified Church and Body, with no agenda other than seeing Him lifted high, we will witness a new spiritual awakening and move of the Holy Spirit here in Ibiza. As His Spirit is poured out, we believe that we will see an even greater weight of His Glory, not only for Ibiza, but also for the whole world..
"YOU WILL ARISE AND HAVE COMPASSION ON ZION, FOR IT IS TIME TO SHOW FAVOUR TO HER; THE APPOINTED TIME HAS COME" Psalm 102
Encens is a 3-day worship gathering where we will praise, worship and pray continuously, using a variety of worship styles and expressions. These will include acoustic music, DJ sets, painting, dance and more.
The objective is simple: to seek the Lord and give Him praise!
2019 will be our third year running Encens! We firmly believe that we are called to come in the opposite spirit to the hedonism for which Ibiza is famous. We want to avoid branding, billboards and excess. Our aim is to simply worship Jesus in the humility of our hearts and the rendition of our souls, giving Him our undivided attention in the amazing Ibizan countryside.
We love the venue God has provided for us, Can Truy
This amazing haven of peace is a place where you can relax and forget about your worries.
Expect praise, worship, transformational prayer, prophecy, dance, teaching, creative workshops, and a prayer room…
Get ready because this year will be full of surprises!
As before, we will follow the leading of the Spirit throughout the gathering. If He doesn’t build the house, the labourers work in vain. This is not a conference and activities are run simultaneously. You decide what you want to do during the day. We also want to encourage an environment for all God’s children to hear His voice and listen to what He has to say – as the one Body we all are. We encourage people to pray for each other and share words, but please don’t feel you have to pray for someone if you don’t feel comfortable. Remember we have the healing and prophetic tents for people to go to!!
Can Truy a beautiful venue near San Juan and Santa Eulalia.
Stay We are currently working on discount rates for Encens 2019 attendees....
Children We will have activities for children at selected times over the weekend. We ask that children are supervised by their parents outside of these activities.
All visions start in seed form and behind them there is always a story to tell. We have seen the vision of Encens develop and grow over time until becoming a reality. This dream started small, here, we have tried to summarise snippets of the Journey we have been on, highlighting key moments of how this vision came about.
A group of intercessors gathered in Ibiza to seek God for the island. During this meeting several people received the same strategy from God – a strategy to win the island for Him. They were led to a passage from 1 Chronicles 20, where Jehoshaphat faced the armies of the enemy with Worship alone as his weapon.
2 Chronicles 20:
“This is what the LORD says to you: ‘Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God’s. 16 Tomorrow march down against them… 17 You will not have to fight this battle. Take up your positions; stand firm and see the deliverance the LORD will give you, Judah and Jerusalem. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Go out to face them tomorrow, and the LORD will be with you.’”18….. Jehoshaphat appointed men to sing to the LORD and to praise him for the splendour of his[c] holiness as they went out at the head of the army, saying:
“Give thanks to the LORD, for his love endures forever.”
The result of Israel’s obedience and faith was that as they worshipped the Lord, there was great confusion in the enemy’s camp leading them to fight against each other and culminating with Israel’s victory.
During the summer of 2005, a local event was created inviting musicians and national DJs to help us bring Jesus to the people, using music as our only weapon. There we saw people impacted and touched by the Spirit.
Between 2000 and 2002, a bunch of young people gathered from the different churches to worship together and pray. We were all just friends that wanted to see Jesus touch Ibiza and none of us understood denominational barriers. As a result, we saw the first fruits; churches working together, events of corporate worship. This released a powerful move of God on the Island. We gathered as one with one heart and one purpose – to seek His face, to worship Him and to pray for Ibiza. We saw His Glory , as we ventured out onto the streets and as we worshipped Him, people would approach us, impacted and drawn by His powerful manifest presence.
In September 2016, I dared to ask God to resurrect the dream, what we had seen and lived during those early years. It was a bold prayer and I wasn’t sure what would happen. I heard Him say; “The set time to favour Her has come” Ps.102. I took it as a NOW word for Ibiza. In October, together with a friend, we started to play with the possibility of renting a villa and gathering our friends from around the globe to come together to worship Jesus in Ibiza. It wasn’t set in concrete but the idea was hovering over us. Then, I had a strange dream, where I was standing next to Luke Rollins, together leading worship, he had come out on mission to Ibiza in previous years with 24-7 prayer. In the dream, he was playing a keyboard and many people had gathered to worship together. Simultaneously, at the same time, in the UK, Luke had heard God say, “Three days worship event Ibiza”, so eventually he contacted me and what we had both received fitted together. We decided to move ahead and create a three-day worship event on Ibiza in 2017.
As in the days of Jehoshaphat, we believe that the Lord has given us a strategy to counter the forces that are coming against the island of Ibiza. We know that worship is the key and a precursor and forerunner to any future and lasting move of God here on the island.
And we know that it is for ‘such a time as this’, the appointed time had come to pick up the dream of corporate worship, again. In doing so, God will resurrect the vision and pour out an even greater glory, not only for Ibiza, but for the whole world. “For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD as the waters cover the sea.” Hab.2:14
