Hello from our Youth & Children's Worker
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 - I would love to hear from you!
Jonny Woodbridge, Youth & Children's Worker
For the tiniest ones we run a creche during the 10am and 4pm services at the Peter & Paul Centre, 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 10am and 4pm services at the Peter & Paul Centre. 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 all those in school up to the ages of 10 and takes place during the 10am and 4pm services at the Peter & Paul Centre. We make the most of the big hall 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 the 10am and 4pm services at the Peter & Paul Centre. Currently we're going over the road to Costa! 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 Sunday afternoons at 5.45pm at the Peter & Paul Centre. In the first part we take some time to chill out, chat and play some games before looking at how what the Bible teaches affects our lives. Then there's a chance to join with others at the 6.30pm service, all finished by 7.45pm.
