CHILDREN’S CHURCH

We host a children’s church jointly with our neighbouring church, St Mary Magdalen, Oxford. Children’s Church meets every Sunday at 10:30am in the Parish Room of St Michael at the North Gate. At approximately 11:15am the children can join the service at either St Mary’s or St Michael’s.

On the 1st Sunday of each month, the children share in the first part of the service, including all-age teaching, and then enjoy their special activities in the Parish Room. All children are invited and their parents are warmly welcome.

At Christmas and Easter we may hold Choral services suitable for the season, usually at 6:00pm – please watch the website for details.
