Chandlers Ford Methodist Church Youth Club kindly continue to allow us use of their facilities.

Children accompanied by their families (including siblings) are welcome. We have three rooms available and have activities such as table tennis, air hockey, a craft table, books, board games, LEGO and other toys plus an opportunity to play in the large hall with a ball, bowling and, sometimes, parachute games. One of the rooms is a quiet room where the children can play board games, Lego or just read.

A child does not need to have a formal autism diagnosis to attend.

In order to ensure the safety and security of all those taking part in this activity, and to comply with our insurance obligations, our safeguarding and child protection policy, and the conditions of hire of this facility, we ask that you observe the following:

  • Parents must remain responsible for their children and must remain in the same room as their child(ren) at all times.
  • Volunteer helpers who are running this activity are not responsible for supervising children.
  • The stage area of the main hall is out of bounds to us.
  • Please respect the facilities (which we use at very low cost) and report any accidental damage immediately to one of our helpers.
  • This club is available to branch member families only, therefore if you haven’t yet joined, please complete a membership form and post or email to us, or complete a form at the club on your first visit.
  • We ask for a donation of £1.50 per child to cover costs.


Free parking is available behind the Church (or in the nearby Fryern Shopping Arcade if the church car park is full). Please enter via the children's garden at the rear of the church, adjacent to the car-park.

We look forward to seeing you.
