We've already started planning this year's Chat-a-Box and we're SO excited to have the use of such fantastic new facilities. We'll be making a few changes to make sure we get the very best out of the new halls, but at heart it'll still be the same Chat-a-Box everyone knows and loves. Get the dates in your diary now - Monday 24 to Sunday 30 July (the first week of the holidays) and watch this space for much more information in the coming weeks and details of when and how to book. See you in the Summer!

Chat-a-Box is our hugely popular holiday club for 7 to 11s (years 2-6) and Café Culture is for young people in school years 7 and 8. Chat-a-Box is staffed by our energetic and charismatic young leaders who are generally aged between 14 and 21, supported by a team of hardworking adults behind the scenes. Café Culture is run by the church youth team. The clubs run during the first week of the summer holidays from Monday through to the following Sunday.

In the mornings at Chat-a-Box there’s drama, activities, stories, music and games. In the afternoons between 2pm and 4pm there is a range of activities to choose from including climbing, horse-riding, CSI, den building, drama, football, rounders, tennis, a Blast Lab science workshop and many, many more! 

On the Wednesday we usually go to the ever-popular Cattle Country as a group for the day. And on the Friday evening, the whole family are invited to a Hot Dog BBQ & Bouncy Castle and the legendary Chat-a-Box Disco. Saturday is a day off before we finish the week with our Chat-a-Box service in the Church Hall on Sunday morning followed by ice-creams.

Café Culture also meets at 10am each day for on- or off-site activities and teaching before finishing with lunch and games between 1pm and 1.45pm.
