St Francis' Church

Service Style

St Francis' warmly welcomes you with a broad and diverse range of Worship. We follow the Common Worship orders apart from monthly Evensong and bimonthly Morning Prayer which are Book of Common Prayer. Typically in our Services there are some sung responses by the congregation and music supported by the choir organ and guitar.

Our morning services are held at 10am and evening services at 6pm and usually last about an hour, with time after to chat to clergy and meet other members of the congregation whilst taking refreshments. There are facilities for babes and small children within the church. We have facilities for people with disabilities.

Good News Club  (also known as Sunday School) Stories, craft and activities for children during services on 2nd, 3rd and 4th Sundays.

The congregation has chosen building blocks to help us focus in our daily lives - A dependence on  God - Prayer - Bible-centred teaching - Youth Ministry - Community involment - Friendliness

Pastoral Care

Pastoral Care is a natural part at the centre of church life, clergy led with a pastoral care team and a prayer network. We aim to keep in touch with the congregation and offer home communion, support local care homes with worship, link with sheltered living, food bank, Welcare, Romanian Aid, assist families through our active Mums and Babes group and offer Bible led study to guide us. 

Social Events

We enjoy a variety of social events and church activities, which are very much part of our fellowship, some church based such as T @ 3,  Epiphany Party, coffee mornings, fun and fellowship days. We also go out and about; people have enjoyed  canal boat and steam train trips, visit to Bodiam Castle and Amberley Chalk Museum. Our church hall lends itself to support social events.  During the week the hall is used for Play Group, Guides, Mums and Babes, dance, fitness and community activities. We appreciate and nurture the links between the groups and church life.

We would love to welcome you!!
