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.

St Michael’s Church is committed to the care and safeguarding of everyone in our community. Contact details for our Parish Safeguarding Officer, and other safeguarding contacts both within the Parish and in our Diocese can be found on our Safeguarding page. Further safeguarding information can be viewed on the Diocese of Newcastle website.


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.
