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.

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

We are a diverse and inclusive community of all ages, gathering from all walks of life, growing together in fellowship, friendship, and service.  We enjoy Anglican worship that ranges from traditional to contemporary and we want to grow as members of the Body of Christ.  Though we are living in unusual times, we are still a church, and worship, discipleship and service are still at the heart of what we do.

Until further notice, and when we return to public worship after the second lockdown, in order to comply with social distancing guidelines you will need a free ticket to attend the Sunday morning service at St Francis Church.

The process of arranging a Christening or the calling of Banns of Marriage has been changed and you will need to contact the Church for further information.  Thank you for your patience, we hope that in the months to come we can continue to discern how best to respond to the ‘new normal.’
