At St Francis of Assisi Parish Church, we are a prayerful community following Jesus Christ as disciples, and strive to share God’s love with everyone we meet.

We seek to be a generous church family rooted in worship, growing in faith, and offering a warm welcome to all.

We are a diverse and inclusive community of all ages, gathering from all walks of life, growing together in fellowship, friendship, and service.


The Parish Church Council of St Francis of Assisi Church has formally adopted the House of Bishops’ ‘Promoting a Safer Church; safeguarding policy statement’ and seek to promote a safer church for children and vulnerable adults.  Contact details of the Parish Safeguarding Adviser (PSA):  Mrs Chris Mayo, mandcmayo@aol.com
