Hello and Welcome to
St Francis of Assisi Parish Church
We are on the corner of Greencourt Road and Willett Way, in the heart of Petts Wood.
Hello, I am Father Stephen and I am the Vicar here
We are a Church of England Parish church
within the Diocese of Rochester.
Our friendly congregation reflects the local community.
We have been open again for worship together on Sundays and weekdays since 4th July. We have good social distancing measures in place, and additionally most of our services are live streamed on YouTube. There is plenty of space – no need to worry about just turning up for any services until Christmas. For Christmas, due to increased numbers we will have a pre-booking system in place via this website nearer the time.
Our church is open most days if you simply want to pop in for some quiet prayer or reflection.
We Worship in the Anglo-Catholic tradition (also called or known as "High" church), and we hold eight services of worship a week.
We also hold occasional services, and monthly Family Services for those looking for a less formal style of worship.
Our active list of Church Services together with our other
spiritual and pastoral services, including home visits is here, please click through for more information.
All the information you need is on this website,
we also have a Facebook page and a WhatsApp group for general chat if you want to join just let me know.
In normal times we have a wide range of social and community events. Sadly these are mostly on hold at present but keep an eye on our social events page and on the Community groups at our Hall page.
Church and Hall hire
We are extremely fortunate to have not only a unique and beautiful church, but a large, and well-equipped hall as well.
Some good news, our Community Hall is finally starting to reawaken and our Community groups have, be it tentatively, started to hold meetings, further information will be coming shortly, but in the meantime If you are looking for a venue for your event and would like to know more about hiring then please call Dave Ince
Hopefully our website tells you all you need to know, but please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any specific queries or questions, my door is always open for a chat, help with any problems you may have or simply a listening ear.
so give me a call on 01689 829971 if there is anything I can help you with.
We look forward to seeing and welcoming you soon at St Francis
Your always very welcome
St Francis of Assisi
