We believe that St Michael’s should be a place for all. In all that we do we aim to live up to these words of Jesus:

“Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” Matthew 19:14

 “Jesus called a little child to him and placed the child among them. And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. 4 Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.” Matthew 18:2-4

 Not only do we have an important responsibility to encourage and grow young people in their faith, we want to provide places and activities for young people to serve and equip the wider church through their actions, thoughts and beliefs.
