St Francis church stands in the heart of the West Wickham community. The family of the church is made up of people of all ages and we aim our worship to be relevant to people's lives. We have a robed choir and use a wide range of music. As Christians we see ourselves on a journey, seeking to deepen our relationship with God, to grow in faith and love supporting one another in times of need. Whether your faith is strong or weak, or you are just searching, a warm welcome awaits you.
