“It feels nice to be part of a group who help each other and are friendly. It makes me feel special.” 

Maddison, aged 10.

What do the clergy think?

“I have been involved with CLCGB since 1969 and have seen how precious it was and what a difference it made in my Parish, All Saints & Martyrs Langley, which had a huge Company. It brings what young people need to young people, it gives them friendship, it gives them fellowship and fun."

Bishop Jack Nichols

How to play Name Bingo

This is probably one of the oldest and most well known icebreakers. It's also known as "People Bingo" and "Get To Know You Bingo". It works for groups of all ages, and can be a really interesting game if played properly.

You'll need to create a name bingo sheet, so basically a 4 x 4 or 5 x 5 grid of personal statements. IE. "has long hair" or "has more than 5 siblings" or "has travelled overseas" etc

Hand these people bingo sheets out to each person and give them a pen, and then send them off to mingle and find people that fit in the gaps. Each player can only use another person once on their sheet.

So the game can either finish when someone collects a name for the entire grid.

Alternatively, the game can continue and bingo can be played after everyone has completed their grids. So a leader would start reading out the names of the youth group kids and then they would need to cross off a name when it has been called - if they get 4 in a row - they win!
