Raising up the next generation of leaders

Check out our kids programs too.

Brookside Youth is the best place for youth in West Ottawa to spend their Friday nights. We do everything we can to ensure a safe environment for youth to be themselves and have fun while learning about Jesus.

  • Fridays at 7-9pm (during the school year)

    Brookside Youth is all about helping youth discover and explore personal faith in Jesus. Through the school year, we hold Friday evening events that are full of interactive activities, biblical teaching and casual socializing.

    Get directions.

    To be extra clear, we typically follow the school year. This means we take a couple weeks off at Christmas and don’t have regular programming during July and August. On March Break and in the Summer, we often do special events such as movie nights, camping, Starbucks meet ups, etc. Email for more details.

New to Brookside?

The goal of our next gen programming is to help kids and youth discover and explore personal faith in Jesus. We want to give kids and youth an unforgettably positive experience as they learn about faith through interactive, age-appropriate programming.


There’s a check-in station located in the Lobby where parents can sign kids and youth into their programs. If it’s your first time attending, one of our team members will register children and give directions for drop off and pick up.
