Children and Young People
This is a page especially for our young friends at St Michael's!
We welcome children as full members of our Church, and there are many opportunities for children of different ages to be involved in the life of the Church. See the links at the bottom of the page for more info.

There's a Bible story, some fun puzzles and a short prayer to say with your grown-ups.

Here's this week's Godly Story
You might like to watch this week’s Godly Story. Every week there's a fab new video of a Bible story, made by people from St Albans Diocese (that's the group of churches around us that St Michael's Church is a part of). It's got questions at the end that you can wonder about and talk about together with your grown-ups afterwards. Find the video on YouTube here
Can you beat this quiz?
You'll need to have a look around the churchyard and on some other pages on this website for your answers! Click on the Quick Quiz to pull up a full-size version to print.
Here are the answers ... no peeking!

Our Youth Group created this bit of silliness back in 2013 and it's still fun to watch. Click on the pic below to find the 'Youth Group Animation' video on our media page ⇒
Who is Saint Michael?
He's an Archangel (one of the most important of God's angels) and is mentioned a few times in the Bible - why not see if you can find him:
Daniel, Chapter 10 and 12
Jude, Chapter 1
The most famous story is mentioned right at the end of the Bible:
Revelation, Chapter 12, verses 7–9
"Then there was a war in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon. The dragon and his angels fought back. But the dragon was not strong enough. He and his angels lost their place in heaven. He was thrown down out of heaven. (The giant dragon is that old snake called the devil or Satan. He leads the whole world the wrong way.) The dragon with his angels was thrown down to the earth." International Children's Bible

You can find pictures of St Michael in a few places in our church too: he's one of the four archangels in the West Window and there's a banner of him too.
We celebrate St Michael's special day on 29th September, or the Sunday nearest to it.
You might want to think of St Michael whenever you feel lonely, scared, or tempted.
