Welcome to the page for Services and Events taking place at your Parish Church in the coming weeks.
The Parish Churches of St Francis and St Clare’s are a child friendly Church and every one will find a warm welcome awaiting them as they arrive. If you are new to either Church please speak to one of the people on the door when you arrive, who will be only too happy to introduce you to one of the regular members who will befriend you and help guide you through the service.
