THE UPPER ROOM IS A DROP-IN CENTRE IN MULLINGAR PROVIDING A SPACE FOR YOUNG PEOPLE TO HANG OUT AND FEEL AT HOME AFTER SCHOOL.

We opened our doors for the first time on 2nd February and have averaged between 35 and 60 young people attending each week. Based in Mullingar, Youth for Christ Ireland recognised that there was a need for young people to gather in a safe place, where they could meet with friends old and new, and be encouraged to engage with our trained staff who are situated in every room. It’s a place for conversations, in a fun and friendly environment.

Currently, The Upper Room, open Fridays from 2:30 to 4:30 pm, contains: a Living Room for card games and casual chats over sweets, biscuits, hot chocolate or tea; Game Room with Xbox, PlayStation and Wii; Rec Room, with pool table, ping pong and air hockey; and our Quiet Room for deeper conversations amidst questions and activities focusing on God and faith.

TESTIMONIALS

I have worked alongside the Youth for Christ team over the last 3 years and in different situations. I am impressed with the way in which they engage so easily with teenagers in a gentle and respectful way. They have no agenda and young people do not find them intimidating. The Youth for Christ team that I have worked alongside simply witness to Jesus and its this gentle and authentic witness that is attracting young people to being a conversation with them.
