Where can you go for a china smash, create your own fashion show, or play table tennis on a Friday evening? The answer is 'simples'! Youth group @ BBC!
The group is for anyone aged 11 up (School years 7+). Most weeks are set up with different 'zones', so you can choose what you get involved in. You can either go upstairs to The Upper Room and play on the Wii or snooker table, or have a game of table tennis downstairs. If the weather is nice, go into the garden and sit and chat, get the swingball out, or use the basketball hoop.

Alternatively, you may want to join in our group activity (as shown below). If you'd rather just come and sit quietly, you're allowed to do that as well! Sometimes we'll go out swimming or bowling. Other weeks are just different!
 
The low down:
  • Friday evenings
  • From 5 pm - 7pm (unless the 'diary' below says something else)
  • At Bovingdon Baptist Church (use Apple Cottages entrance)
  • Hot chocolate mountains / chips at some point during the evening. If you need food or drink, just ask!
  • Parents need to sign a consent form each year
  • You don't need to pay for the regular evenings down at church, but can give a donation if you want to

We want this to be your space. All we ask is that you respect one another - to encourage each other, value other people's opinions, and think about how you can help everyone have a great time. The more we invest in the group and each other, the better the group will be.
