Join us at a time of thoughtful reflection, as we prepare our hearts and minds for the true meaning of the coming of our Saviour as a refugee – a baby in a manger at the Christmas Season.  In addition to our regular Sunday morning Worship at 8.45 a.m. and 10.00 a.m., this year our ADVENT services include:

Advent Sunday: 29th November – 6.00 p.m.:  Advent Service of Light
A hugely popular candle-lit Service which sets the tone for our Advent devotions;

2nd Sunday in Advent: 6th December – 10.00 a.m.:  Advent Family Service
Something for all ages as we look forward to the real meaning of the Christmas season
This service will also receive the Financial Gifts from our annual Gift Day

3rd Sunday in Advent:  13th December – 7.00 p.m.: Informal Evening Worship and reflection
A gentle and thought-provoking chance to prepare for the coming of Our Saviour;

We hear again the whole Christmas story, and join in festive Carols – Christmas has almost arrived!

Christmas posters 2015 - James Bond

Calling all James Bond fans:  If you have already seen James Bond’s latest film – Spectre, you’ll know that he encountered a not-so-warm welcome to a church service he attended … in contrast to the welcome everyone will get at St Francis’ Church this Christmas.

With acknowledgement and thanks to the ‘Christmas Starts with Christ’ Campaign, run under the auspices of Premier Radio, for their advertisement idea!
