Welcome to Westside Youth!
We're a gospel-centred community on mission to make Jesus known! Be sure to subscribe to the Westside Youth Newsletter below to stay up to date with all that's happening in and through the Youth Ministry of Westside Church.
As Youth living in Vancouver, we get the incredible opportunity to live as messengers of the good news of the Kingdom of God! Our Youth Nights are a safe space for any grade 7-12 student, regardless of who they are, where they come from, or what they believe. We simply provide a space for Youth to encounter the presence of Jesus and learn more about who He is and what He is doing in our world. We typically gather each Monday night from 7–9pm to share a meal, build community, worship, study the Scriptures, and talk/pray over each other in small groups lead by our adult Youth Leaders. Our goal is to learn what it looks like to live as Spirit-empowered followers of Jesus who make Jesus known by bringing the Kingdom of God with us wherever we go.
Visit the calendar page for the most up to date times and locations of each Youth gathering.
CURRENT SERIES: SEX, DATING, AND RELATIONSHIPS
Every February, we take a break from our normal teaching rhythm and do our Sex, Dating, and Relationships series. We think it's vital to teach through topics relating to sexuality, marriage, and dating, annually and help our students learn how Jesus calls them to live their lives. Our desire in this series to help student see their sexuality through the lens of the Kingdom of God, and be able to engage humbly, thoughtfully, and lovingly with the world and culture around them.
Each teaching will be uploaded to the Westside Youth Podcast.

Seek Night is a monthly night we set aside as the Youth Ministry of Westside Church where we sing, pray, learn, and seek the presence of God together. We want to know our Father, meet with Jesus, and hear from the Spirit. Simply put, we seek God in order experience His power and presence (Matthew 6v33).
Of course we can (and should!) seek God all day every day, but we gather together once a month as a Youth community to put a concentrated effort into singing, praying, worshipping, learning, and seeking God’s presence together. We set aside a Friday night to be still before the Lord, rid ourselves of distractions, open our hearts/minds in prayer, open the Scriptures, hear from brothers and sisters, and pray/work to see Heaven come to Earth and God’s will done in Vancouver as we seek to make Jesus known.
Each Seek Night happens from 7–10pm at The Centre

ALL NIGHT SEEK
All Night Seek is a time to spend all night in prayer and worship before the Lord contending for our lives, church, friends, family, future, and city. Now, that may sound “intense” or “too much,” especially for a group of grade 7–12 students, so we've written a short guide describing the why and how of our All Night Seek. You can find by clicking here. This will not be a night you want to miss.
Friday, May 17 at 10pm– 6am on Saturday, May 18
