About Us

St Francis Church stands at the heart of the Bournville Village four miles from Birmingham City Centre. Bournville was the model village built by George Cadbury around the chocolate factory, 100 years later it is still a wonderful community. St Francis Church is a beautiful building - a simple bascillica architecture that looks rather Italian. The interior is open and light with a wonderful sense of space. The church is a thriving community with people of all ages attending worship (our average Sunday attendance is 141 adults and 35 children). We offer accessible Anglican worship, with a strong musical tradition. There are popular chidlren's groups and we also have a superb church primary school. The St Francis Youth and Community Centre serves the neighbourhood and is visited by over 1000 people every week. We welcome people of all backgrounds to the church and centre. The church is widely used by the wider community for services and to celebrate life events and also for concerts.
