Thame Youth Café

About Us

Thame Youth Café exists for the young people of Thame and the surrounding villages. Set-up a few years ago after seeing a need to provide a hub where young people can gather safely, enjoy a variety of activities, get some refreshments and also support and interaction with them.

Thame Youth Café is primarily run and supported by volunteers. These individuals, from all walks of life, give up their time to hang out with the young people, feed them, play games with them, entertain them and create a safe, welcoming, non-judgmental environment. Oversight is provided by a committee under the umbrella charity – Thame Youth Projects Group.

Thame Youth Café is also a member of Oxfordshire Youth – a charity that supports youth groups around Oxfordshire, provides resources, training & activities. You can find out more about them here.

We run two youth cafés: one for 11-14s and one for 14-16s. Both cafés are managed by Nick Francis, youth pastor at Barley Hill Church.

Youth Cafés

We run two youth cafés, for two different age groups, held at Christchurch Methodist Church on Thame Upper High Street.
