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.  Our 2016 Fun Day, which also formed part of the Celebrations of the 25th Anniversary of our Church building and School, took place on 17th September 2016. 

Look out for details of the 2017 Event in the summer of 2017.
