Encounter Youth 

We are committed to supporting young people to encounter Jesus for themselves. 

Encounter Youth meet for Youth Church  every Sunday at the Selly Oak Campus in the coffee lounge during the preaching slot of the morning service to explore how we get to live in today’s world as young people who’ve encountered Jesus.

We also meet for Friday Youth on term-time Fridays in main hall of the Selly Oak Campus (6.45-8.45pm) to recover from the week, play games and socialise in a more relaxed environment. 

Due to the current climate, all Youth Sessions are in the process of being replaced by online socials.

DOWNLOAD ZOOM: The video chat platform that we’ll be using for our Friday Night Youth Online meetings (7 – 8.30pm), and our midweek catch-ups.  You can do this on most phones, tablets and laptops/PCs with cameras and microphones. We recommend using a PC so that you can see everyone in the chat rather than just the person who’s speaking the loudest.

Once the app has been downloaded, simply click here to join the meeting, or select “join a meeting” in the app, and insert this code: 737 714 195


We have reserved this activity for our Year 10-13s because of the chrome extension required to participate in the event. To take part you will need access to a laptop/pc that you can use for the duration of the film, a Netflix Account, and you will need to have downloaded the Netflix Party Extension on Google Chrome. Full instructions can be found here
