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)


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.

St Michael’s supports Contagious, an ecumenical youth charity as part of our membership of Christians Together in Alnwick. There are two regular youth activities – the Rock Solid group for 9-13 year olds and Mettle, a group for high school students. Both of these groups allow young people to explore Christian faith along with games and fun activities. For more information contact Claire Mead, Youth & Schools Worker on or see the Contagious website.

Other Activities

St Michael’s also holds occasional activities for young people in the church which have in the past included calligraphy sessions, crafts and games.
