At St Michael’s we have a range of groups for children up to Yr6 during Sunday services and midweek. (For details of groups for older children and teenagers, click here).

Children on Sundays

Children are very welcome on a Sunday – both visitors and regulars are valued and are important to us. Trekkers meet in the church Bell Tower during the Contemporary services with fun activities and Christian input for children of Primary school age – you don’t have to belong to the church to join us and your child is assured of a warm welcome.
A selection of books, toys and cushions are laid out at the back of the church so children of preschool age can play happily whilst you enjoy still being part of the service.


What is Pathfinders?
A chance to introduce children who are in school years R-6, to God, building knowledge, understanding and a relationship with him so that they can make a choice to walk God’s path and enter into his Kingdom and Tea is also served .

When  and where do we meet?
Thursdays during term time – 5.05pm – 6.15pm (but not the first Thursday of each term) at  St Michael & All Angels’ Church in Lilleshall

What do we do?
We spend time in small groups exploring the Bible through different approaches such as drama, interactive readings and puppets. This is often followed with a craft activity. We join together in worship with modern music and we occasionally include dance, ribbons, flags and musical instruments

Who are the Leaders?
The Leaders are all committed Christians who worship regularly:

  • Leaders:  Helen Jones,  Alex Jones, Jane Austin and Chris Leyden
  • Assistant Leaders:  Scarlett Jones
  • Junior Leaders:  Todd Kynaston, Georgia Appleton, Amber Dickens and Brendan Appleton

(All Leaders and Helpers have a DBS Check (Criminal Record bureau) and follow the Lichfield Diocesan Child Protection Policy)

How much does it cost?
We ask for a weekly donation of £2.00 per session to include food which is used towards the cost of resources, materials and Birthday gifts for the children. We really appreciate your donations.

Anything else you need to know?

  • Pathfinders are encouraged to come along with their families to our child-friendly services and Messy Church
