Church Notices 21st May

Welcome

St Francis Church is a friendly community from different backgrounds. Our worship is informal in style and heartfelt. We’re not perfect but we’re working on it. Everyone is welcome.

The Goodman’s are leaving…

As you know The Goodman’s last day is today. Our love, and prayers follow them as they leave to take up ministry in Chalfont St Peter. There will be cake and fizzy pop to send them on their way!
