COSMICS is the Children of St Michael’s in Church.
The children’s work at St Michael’s is incorporated within the 11.15am Networks service. We usually have a carpeted area with table and colouring sheets at the front of church, with jigsaws, and few toys for younger children at the back of church by the font.
During the sermon the children go to their groups; they participate in creative activities in the meeting room based on the week’s bible reading.
The younger group, up to and including school year 4 children, are called the Creators. Children in school years 5 to 8 are called the Explorers. The young people’s group are called Genesis; they meet in the parish office and have discussions on the bible reading for that Sunday.
Our children’s work also includes running a crèche at the Baptism service, organising craft activities for Creative Church. We hold various events during the year to celebrate Festivals. We make the posies for Mothering Sunday, followed by tea and cakes.
We have an Easter event which includes making the Easter garden, hot cross buns and cakes, At the August Rustic Fayre we organise craft activities in the prayer tent.
COSMICS also hold a Christingle-making event following the Networks service with mince pies and cakes
