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 and young people to be involved in the life of the Church.  See the links at the bottom of the page for more info.

Godly Story

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!

Who is Saint Michael?

St Michael, West Window
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:20200925 125238
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.

Speech marks
"Bridge Zoom Worship - 5:30pm, Sunday 10th January 2021:
With the Covid-19 infection rate at its highest in months we’re unfortunately still unable to restart worship together at Holy Trinity or our other churches, so for at least the next couple of months we’ll continue to worship together via Zoom... 

With that said, we’ve started a new year and if, like us, one of your New Year’s resolutions is to learn more about, or strengthen your Christian faith, then you might like our second event in Jan 2021...

Youth Alpha via Zoom - 19:30-21:00, Sunday 24th January 2021:
Starting on the fourth Sunday in January we’ll be starting a new Youth Alpha series. If the last year has been a struggle for you with your faith or if you’d just like to reconnect with Jesus, then we’ll be running a new Youth Alpha course fortnightly in term time beginning on 24th Jan.  Because of the COVID restrictions we’ll be at least beginning the course online but we wanted to start the new year positively!

For more information, including a trailer for the course, click here.

If that sounds fun then please feel free to join us and come along to any of the meetings - more details in Jan 10th Zoom Worship!"
