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.

Please return to this site regularly for more information, and make sure that you are following @encounteryouthuk on Instagram and/or Facebook and that you are subscribed to our Youtube Channel
