St Michael's is a busy church community - among the activities and groups are:
Sunday School - meets in the Hall at 10.30 am on the 2nd, 4th and 5th Sundays of the month - it joins with the informal Family Service (in the Hall) on the 1st Sunday and with Praise/Parade (in church) on the 3rd.
Coffee & Tots - Mondays at 10.30 am in the Hall. A social morning, and a chance for parents, grandparents, carers and minders of pre-school children to have a chat with friends over a cuppa, whilst the young ones play safely.
Fusion Youth Events - monthly events are organised for young people (Y7 and upwards) in collaboration with other churches in the Ormskirk area. See the This week's notices for details.

Bible Study Group - meets Thursdays at 1.30 pm in the Hall to read and study the scriptures. All are welcome - just come along (preferably with you Bible!)
Pastoral Visiting Groups - members of the congregation take Communion to six nursing homes and to church members who are unable to come to church. Others visit the housebound and those who are in hospital. If you know someone who needs a visit, contact the Parish Office or the Rector.
