St Francis of Assisi
OFFERING WELCOME SHARING GOD'S LOVE GROWING IN FAITH
At St Francis of Assisi Parish 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, 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. We enjoy Anglican worship that ranges from traditional to contemporary and we want to grow as members of the Body of Christ. Though we are living in unusual times, we are still a church, and worship, discipleship and service are still at the heart of what we do.
You no longer need a ticket to attend the Sunday morning service at St Francis Church, however, there will remain just one service at 9.30am.
The process of arranging a Christening or the calling of Banns of Marriage can be arranged by attending our Office Hour at church every Thursday from 6pm-7pm.
St Francis of Assisi is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer(s), PSOs. The Diocese of York’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. 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.
