New community activities

St Francis’ Church seeks to arrange community events when appropriate and also when possible, to support community initiatives organised by other community-related organisations operating within Valley Park.

Each September we join with St Francis’ School in running a Community Fund Day within the Church and Church Garden, featuring Inflatables, Games, Stalls, Refreshments and Live Music.  We are taking a break in 2018, but please look for details of the 2019 event in due course

Feeling lonely or isolated?

Would you like to meet new friends in a welcoming environment over a cup of freshly brewed coffee and a piece of delicious home-made cake?

Then why not try:


The Café meets weekly on Wednesday: 

(and we can give you a lift there and back if you need it!)

St Francis’ Rendezvous is now a Community Information Café, where you can find Benefits advice and information about local Community and Health Service provisions, as well as guidance on useful home security and other safety information.
