Connect After School Church

What is Connect?

Connect is our After-School Church which meets in the hall at St Michael’s School on Thursdays in term-time and everyone is very welcome to attend.  

Led by a team from St Michael’s Church and supported by our wonderful school staff and parents, Connect aims to help children explore and grow in their Christian faith in a fun and relaxed environment.  

We always start with some gathering time with lots of fun table games & crafts, and the chance to chat over coffee and some tasty Breads & Spreads. We then spend around 35 minutes together learning about the Christian faith, exploring different topics and themes each week with fun teaching, activities and songs.  

Who’s it for?

Connect is for everyone; though it’s particularly aimed at primary aged children. We aim to make our sessions fun and engaging for all, and we know that many parents and carers enjoy coming along too. 

Those in Years 5 & 6 can attend unattended (with a filled in consent form – available from the Office). Children in Years 4 and below need to be accompanied by an adult.  

Creche facilities are available if you have little ones and our friendly team will always be on hand to help.   

When’s it on?

Connect currently runs every other week on a Thursday from 3.30-4.40pm in the school hall. Flyers are produced at the start of each term with a full list of dates so do look out for these and come along. 

We also love meeting for Connect Specials through the year which include Light Parties, Nativity & Easter Trails and more – so do keep an eye out for details on these. 

Why not give it a try?

Whatever school year your child is in and whether you’ve been to Connect before or not, you’d be really welcome to come along and give it a try. If you have any questions about Connect, or about the work of St Michael’s Church more widely, then feel free to contact one of our team members below who will be happy to tell you more.
