At BBC YOUTH we live by the #livedifferent. We’re passionate about trying to live Jesus shaped lives wherever we are & whatever we’re doing.

We’re open to the adventures that Jesus has for us wherever that might lead us & whatever that might mean us doing. Most of all wherever we are & whatever we’re doing we want to make Jesus famous.

We have loads going on for 11-18’s! So if you are between 11-18 then we would love to hear from you and see you at one of our events or if you are a parent of a teenager and would like some more information about who we are and what we do we would also love to hear from you as well!

Youth Events

Slum survivor: Each year we build a slum in the church car park & spend the night sleeping in it! We have a crazily large amount of fun doing it … honest! It’s just a small way for us to experience how a billion people in our world spend a lifetime. We also raise money which is used to help some of those billion people break free from the poverty & oppression that they’re facing. Over the past few years we’ve raised money for www.toilettwinning.org & also for Tibetan refugees in Nepal. Check out www.soulaction.org for more info

Soul Survivor Celebrations Watford: These take place every couple of months & are a great opportunity to connect back in with Soul Survivor, worship with other young people & receive great teaching. Check out www.soulsurvivor.com for more info or Contact Rob Stevens.

Soul Survivor Festival: Each year we go to the Soul Survivor Festival in Somerset. It’s an amazing time of passionate worship, life changing teaching & outrageous fun! … in a field with a big top, with 8000 other young people … honestly it’s outrageously awesome! We particularly like colour chaos, boogie nights & our food crew days! Check out www.soulsurvivor.com for more info or Contact Rob Stevens.

Friday’s @BBCYOUTH

We meet most Friday evenings during term time at 7.30pm at Bookham Baptist Church. We have an awesome time together with crazy games, pamper area, chill-out zone, some worship & some time to think about how Jesus can change us & challenge us. Contact Rob Stevens for more info.

The Hub

The Hub is for year 11 upwards & meets on a Monday evening at Bookham Baptist Church. If you want to go a bit deeper & wider in the adventure of life with Jesus then this is the group for you. A great, safe space in which to worship, pray, learn & be honest with each other … while enjoying awesome hot chocolate & cake! Contact Rob Stevens for more info.

Sunday’s @BBCYOUTH

Sunday’s @BBC YOUTH is a great opportunity to grow in our understanding of what it means to #livedifferent. We take time to go deeper into the Bible, pray for each other & think about how we can #livedifferent during the coming week & generally have an amazing time together!
