Minecraft Club

ACCT’s Minecraft club runs online twice per week, in the same Saturday time-slot as Acctivate (9.45am – 12.15pm), and on Thursdays 6-8pm. Both sessions are for all age groups. We started this club during Covid-19 lockdown and have kept it going since in-person clubs reopened.

If you’re a regular player already, you can use your own account, or if you don’t have one, we have a number of accounts that ACCT members can borrow for the session times. Come along to build, explore and chat with your ACCT pals!
Read below to see the Rules, How To Play and How To Join ACCT Minecraft.

Minecraft runs on Thursday evenings between 6pm and 8pm and Saturday mornings between 9:45am and 12:15pm.

You’ll need access to a computer, an internet connection, and to download and install Minecraft on to your computer in order to join in. Unfortunately, we are unable to help with external issues, such as installing Minecraft, setting up computers, internet connections, etc. For this reason, parents should be available to help children while playing. ACCT staff will be on hand to help with in-game issues, and help your children get involved. If your child needs any help in the game, ask in Minecraft chat (press T on your keyboard, once you have finished typing, press Enter) and we’ll be here!

If you’d like to book a place or have issues getting set up, please get in touch via enquiries@acctsheffield.org.uk.
