Children and Young People

At St Michael’s, we strive to be a welcoming place for people of all ages. Below, you can find out about a number of activities for children and young people which St Michael’s is involved in.

The Church of England is committed to the safeguarding, care and nurture of everyone within our church community. If you have any queries or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us. A list of those who are responsible for safeguarding concerns at St Michael’s is available here: Safeguarding Contacts (pdf) Safeguarding Contacts (Word). Further safeguarding information can be viewed on the Diocese of Newcastle website.

Services

Children and young people are very welcome at all our church services. On the first Sunday of the month there is a more relaxed service with an interactive talk and the children stay in. On other Sundays there are activities for children and young people at the 9.30 and 11.15 services.
