Hello from our Youth & Children's Team
Youth and children are an extremely important part of the life of St Michael's. There is a full programme for them throughout the week and in everything we do we try to have as much fun as possible as we learn more about Jesus and see what difference he makes to our lives. Have a browse below for what we get up to and if you have any questions at all please do get in touch - we would love to hear from you!

For the tiniest ones we run a creche during the 10.30am Service, providing a safe space for them to enjoy while you engage with the service.
Building Blocks is our group for pre-schoolers that takes place at the 10.30am Service. We have loads of fun together as we look at a story from the Bible, do a craft and play with some toys.
Sunday Club is for those in school up to the ages of 10.
- During the 10.30am Service there are groups for 4-10 year olds, usually split into two groups by age.
- At the 5.15pm Service there's a group for 8-10 year olds. We make the most of the space to play games, do crafts and team challenges, and most importantly look at the Bible and learn about Jesus together.
Animate on Sundays
Animate is our group for 10-14 year olds and we meet during both the 10.30am and 5.15pm Services. We have loads of fun hanging out together, playing some games and studying the Bible together to see what difference Jesus makes to our lives.
A group for 14s to 18s meeting on Sundays at 6.45pm after the 5.15pm Service. We take some time to chill out, chat and play some games before looking at how what the Bible teaches affects our lives.
