St Francis of Assisi
OFFERING WELCOME SHARING GOD'S LOVE GROWING IN FAITH
At St Francis of Assisi 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 together, growing in faith, and offering a warm welcome to all.
We are a diverse and inclusive community of all ages, gathering from all walks of life, growing together in fellowship, friendship, and service.
Our clergy are currently live streaming from our church Facebook page, and we welcome you to take part.
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.

The Diocese of York’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advises our PSO. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.
At St Francis of Assisi Parish Church, we enjoy Anglican worship that ranges from traditional to contemporary and we want to grow as members of the Body of Christ.
Due to the closure of the parish centre, we are not able to arrange baptisms or weddings at this time. Once the closure has been lifted, we will be contacting all of the families where their Christening wasn't able to take place.
We are unable to take hall bookings at this time as well.
