Families & Children

Families and children are especially welcome to the church:

There is a relaxed friendly atmosphere and toys at the back of the church for families with young children. 

We also have a Sunday school each week at 1030 for children aged 3-12, and Family Church once a month.

Please also see the Family Church section of the website for more details.
 

Welcome to Our New Children and Young People’s Worker - Liz Boland


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’m very excited to have been appointed as the new Children and Young People’s Worker at St Michael’s and All Angels.  I grew up in a Christian household in Runcorn, and knew from being about 16 that God has called me to work for Him.  Over the next few years, it became clear that this calling is to work with children teaching them about God and the importance and relevance of the Bible.  My passion is not just to teach what the Bible says, but also how that is relevant to us now.  I believe that the Bible is not just a book of stories to teach us about God, but also a book that guides how we live and follow God now.

We moved to Preston in May 2018, when my husband, Chris, became vicar of Christ Church, Fulwood.  We have 2 children, Daniel who is 16 and Alex who is 14 who both attend Archbishop Temple School.  I also work part time as a teaching assistant at Broughton Primary School.  Before we moved, I set up and worked for Grantham Christian Ministries Trust, which works with all the primary schools in Grantham, Lincolnshire, taking the Bible into schools (church and community schools) in assemblies, RE lessons and lunchtime clubs.  I also lead a Scripture Union Beach Mission each summer in Sutton on Sea, Lincolnshire.  This is a big job in itself as I am in overall charge of the whole two-week event!

My vision for the work here is for more children to come along to church events, both Sunday School and Family Church and to be excited by the Bible and by what God can do in their lives.  I will be in church 2 Sunday mornings each month and for Family Church.  This means that I can also keep my connections at Christ Church, where I also lead the Junior Church and Messy Church.  I look forward to getting to know you all well over the next few weeks and months and my prayer is that we can work as a whole church to see God working in the village.
