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 are back in the building at 10:30am on Sundays, meeting in the coffee lounge via the link entrance. We are now also meeting back in the same place from 6.30-8pm for Milkshake Mondays – termtime only, see below for more details. 

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.



LIMITLESS FESTIVAL 2021 is ON! Limitless Festival is our national Limitless youth event, bringing together young people and youth groups from everywhere in the country. This year, unfortunately we can’t go the Staffordshire County Show Ground as planned BUT, crucially, it’s not another online event – we know we’ve all had enough of online school, zoom quizzes and the awkward video calls with the grandparents.

At Encounter Church, our Limitless Festival 2021 experience will take the form of a SLEEPOVER from FRIDAY 6th – SATURDAY 7th AUGUST 2021 at our Selly Oak location, and we will be joined by the guys and gals from Limitless Weoley Castle as well

The theme this year is GATHER, PRAY, GO:


After so long being apart, the start of Limitless Festival 2021 is designed to help youth groups reconnect. And since you either go big or go home, we’ll be hiring in an inflatable obstacle course, getting the consoles out, doing some team games and sports and just making the most of our time together!


The coronavirus pandemic may have prevented us from meeting, but it does not prevent the kingdom of God from advancing! We’ll running creative prayer stations for everyone to get the chance to connect with God in a way that works for them, and we’ll also be joined online by James Aladiran (Prayer Storm).


Having gathered together and prayed together, we’ll GO together! We’ll be volunteering with the community, doing things like car washing, cake dropping as we spend time together and sharing the joy with the community.

We’ll be engaging with interactive live sessions streamed to us from our National Limitless Family and we’ll also get the chance to feedback about what we’ve done to GATHER, PRAY and GO.

We had an amazing summer together in 2019, but I genuinely think this could rival it.
