St Francis Church is situated in a mainly residential suburb of Rochester, and a commuter town for London.

As Christians in our local community we serve everyone by offering regular worship, opportunities to explore spirituality and faith, a place to meet, including through our cafe sessions. We also work in our local schools, as well as with people in every part of our large parish. 

Our church fellowship meets at 10.30 am and uses Holy Communion (Common Worship) most weeks (except 2nd Sunday when we have 8 am Holy Communion (BCP) and 10.30 am All Age Worship).

We have a hall and a small room for hire.
