Prayer Life
Thursday Morning Prayers. We meet every week at 10am. A space to have ‘quality time’ with the Lord and to pray into the prayer requests on the Prayer Board.
Prayer Board. This is located in the church where we can leave prayer requests. Just placing the request on the board is, in itself, a prayer, but by being on the board others will also pray into these requests. If you post a prayer please remember to update the board providing updates on how the prayer request is changing and feedback on what the Lord is doing.
Monthly Prayer and Praise meeting. A creative space in which we thank the Lord for what he is doing, bring him our intercessions and seek his guidance. Second Sunday of the month at 7pm.

Confidential Prayer Chain. Send your urgent and confidential prayers using the prayer request form. The request will go to a small team of prayer warriors who will  keep your prayer confidential to this group.

            Cuppa & Chat
Everyone is welcome. A time to relax, chat and enjoy a cuppa. It’s an opportunity to make and build friendships.

There’s a warm welcome waiting for you.The “At your Service” will be available to help you to arrange a baptism, a wedding or have your Banns of Marriage published at St Francis’ Church. We meet on the first Saturday of the month between 10am and 12noon.
            Craft & Cuppa
A time to relax, chat and enjoy your favourite crafts in company of friends. Bring craft with you – knitting, crocheting, sewing, card craft, woodwork or any other. Let’s get creative together. We meet on the third Saturday of the month between 10am and 12noon.

Alpha Course
Who is it for?
Everyone, is the short answer to that.  Whether you have just started to have questions about life, and what it’s all about, or have been a Christian all your life, there is something in the Alpha Course for you.

What will happen?
The course lasts for twelve weeks.  We start at 7pm and you’ll be done by 9.30pm at the latest.  First we’ll have a meal together then we’ll have a talk.  This might be a video talk or one or our team might speak.  After that, we break into groups where we chat about what we’ve heard.  Groups are led by two facilitators who will get the discussion going.  This is where we really get to grips with what the Christian faith is all about, and there is absolutely no question that is off-limits.

I’m interested – when is the next course running?
We usually run an Alpha course once a year starting in September.  If you’d like to be told in advance of the start of the next course, please drop us a note HERE.

         St Francis Players
We are a friendship group that share an interest in music. We meet on Thursday evenings and usual arrange two or three events each year. These can range from a sing-along of old favourites to more ambitious concerts. We particularly enjoy Roger Jones productions and have performed musicals including "Pharisee" and "Jairus´ Daughter". We also sing at the local care homes in our parish – Cambron House and Silverwood Care Home.We welcome new members. You don’t need to be able to read music, most of us don’t, but we do just enjoy music and each other’s company.
