Youth Work

Our churches seek to engage with children and young adults both within the context of church events but also by reaching out through school lessons, assemblies and visits, encouraging them to learn more about the christian faith.

Working with our local schools

We are very fortunate to have a Church primary school in Mitcheldean - Mitcheldean Endowed Primary School. In addition to providing Foundation Governors to the governing body (who have an added responsibility for supporting and encouraging the distinctive Christian ethos of the school), Fr David takes part in school lessons and Mitcheldean church acts as a teaching resource, with pupils taking trips to explore the building and its features. We also host seasonal and end of terms services.

Fr David leads Collective Worship in school and our volunteer 'Open the Book' storytellers take part in fortnightly assemblies, using drama, props, costumes - even the children themselves - to present Bible stories in ways that are lively, engaging and informative.

We run 'Experience Easter' sessions each year where pupils from the school learn about the Easter story at different stations around the building.

During Advent we also hold 'Messy Christingle' where children and parents alike get to explore the Christmas story and craft their own Christingle.

St. Michael & All Angels, Mitcheldean also regularly plays host to End of Term services for Dene Magna School, our local secondary school.
