If you are coming to the
end of Year 6 then we would be delighted to see you at Chatroom.
This is a youth group for children aged 10½ to 14. The aim is to provide a safe and comfortable environment for members to have fun and the opportunity to put forward ideas, topics and issues that matter to them. Sponsored by the Parochial Church Council for any faith, denomination or culture, Chatroom meets on the third Sunday of each month in term time in Barford Parish Church, 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm .
We aim to cover a wide range of topics
and activities, the choice of which will be up to the
members of the
group. Although topics will sometimes have a Christian
emphasis, we welcome members, ideas and aspects of ALL
cultures and faiths.
Our main aim is NOT to teach and
preach but to provide an outlet for ideas, energy and
enthusiasm from the
young people involved.
Make new friends.
Talk about issues important to you.
Get involved in the community.
Drama workshops, games and activities.
Nights in, food nights, music nights (yes you can bring
your own CDs), video evenings, noisy debates.

Just chilling out after school and homework.
We aim to provide a cosy, comfy and informal atmosphere
within the secure environment of Barford Parish Church.
Third Sunday in the month in term time.
