Heartsease: St Francis

Church at the heart of the community with the community at its heart!

We are a friendly and welcoming church working out how to love God and love our neighbours as we love ourselves.  Based on Rider Haggard Road, just a short walk from both Heartsease  Primary Academy and Open Academy.  

We would love to welcome you to a socially distanced Holy Communion at 10.30am.  If you are unable to attend in person we are holding virtual services.  Please see the service details below and click more about this event.   If you would like an order of service please see Newsheets section.

We look forward to a time when we will again be able to open our building to the whole community and open many new or existing groups for all ages and needs.

The parish of Heartsease: St Francis 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 Norwich’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.
