St Francis Church is in Strood, near Rochester. 

As Christians in our local community we serve everyone by offering regular worship, alongside opportunities to explore spirituality and faith, a place to meet, including through our cafe sessions. We work alongside our local schools, and with people of other faiths and of no faith. Everyone is welcome.

Our church fellowship meets at 10am on a Sunday morning, and is Holy Communion (Common Worship) most weeks (except 2nd Sunday when we have 8 am Holy Communion (BCP) and 9.30 breakfast together followed by 10 am All Age Worship).

We have a hall and a small room for hire.
