‘Whoever welcomes a child in my name, welcomes me’  Mark 9:37

Children of all ages are welcome to all and every service at St. Michael’s. Please feel free to move about and look after your child during worship as is most helpful to you. Changing facilities and toilets can be found in the adjacent community centre. The stewards are always on hand to offer help and assistance.

The children were encouraged to dress up as angels for our patronal festival

There is a soft-play crèche at the back of the church around the font for younger children. During term time there is a Sunday School for children of primary school age (please click here for more information). Throughout the year there are many special services and events for children including our monthly all age family Mass at 10am, our weekly children’s Mass at 11.30am (except last Sunday of the Month).

We seek to help children and their parents to grow in their Christian faith. We hope you find St. Michael’s a nurturing and welcoming place for you and your family. We are always keen to hear feedback, so please do get in touch and consider volunteering.

Please also see our Children’s leaflet here.

St. Michael’s takes seriously its commitment to children and vulnerable adults and has a dedicated safeguarding officer whose role is to make sure that we maintain the highest standards in protection of the vulnerable, both young and old. All volunteers with our ministry receive checks via the Disclosure and Barring service.

To discuss any matter related to safeguarding please get in touch with Lucy, who is always happy to help.
