Church of England Diocese of Rochester Strood, St. Francis

About Us

St Francis Church is in Strood, near Rochester. 

As Christians in our local community we serve everyone by offering regular worship, alongside opportunities to explore spirituality and faith.  In more usual times we offer regular opportunities to meet, informally and formally in person including through our  cafe sessions. Everyone is welcome.

During these times of Government restrictions we are committed to following the guidelines produced by the Government and the Church f England. These are changeable - when possible we will offer a Holy Communion service at 8am on a Sunday, and then an online worship service at 10am. You will find the details on our latest notice sheet.

We recognise that hospitality is a gift from God, and we love to share that with our local area. Here you will find a warm welcome, and authentic community.
