We love children & youth!

Children and youth are welcome at all our services. We love seeing them grow up in faith, learning alongside the whole church family.


Children & Youth Minister

Melissa lives in Macclesfield with her husband, Richard, their daughter Bella (10) and son Michael (5).  They love to walk as a family, play games and watch movies.

Melissa says: ‘I was brought up going to church and decided I wanted to become a Christian when I was 10. But it was not until I finished university that I felt the conviction to do something about it. A bit of a rebel as a teenager, I was now determined to show young people that you don’t have to be ‘perfect’ to be a Christian and that God loves every single one of us no matter what.  I volunteered in youth work at my church, and got involved in different exciting events while having a day job working in the world of international export and sales.  But for more than 10 years now I have been employed in children and youth ministry in different churches with a variety of traditions – it’s a great feeling to be sure I am where God wants me to be. I’d like young people to feel that they belong, and are accepted as they are, so they can believe in a God who loves them unconditionally. If I had realised what freedom there is in letting God into my life, I would never have been so rebellious as a teenager!’



In church there is a children’s area with toys, books and activities. Refreshments in St Peter’s House after the 10:00am service include juice and biscuits (toilets and baby changing facilities are available).

Sunday School

Sunday School normally takes place during the 10:00am service on a Sunday. Together we learn about Jesus, grow in faith and enjoy spending time with each other.

The whole church family meets together in St Peter’s for the start of our service at 10:00am during which the Sunday School moves to St Peter’s House. 

We rejoin the service in church in time for communion.

Messy Church is now happening back in church! For dates and more information please see the notice on our Home page or contact Melissa, our Children & Youth Minister. Email: melissa@stpetershale.org.uk
