St Francis Church, Cowley Parish

St Francis is a friendly, inclusive community-based church, with roots in the Anglo-Catholic tradition, but with a congregation that is growing used to a more informal Eucharistic style of worship. There is an emphasis on Franciscan spirituality and this leads us to look out towards the world. We would like to encourage students to join us and provide a student lunch at the vicarage on the first Sunday of the month. During term-time on Thursdays the church is open for prayer and coffee (2-4pm) which attracts students.We currently have an all age lay-led service on the second Sunday of the month which is followed by a shared hot lunch. St Francis is the type of church where we all work, worship and pray together - there is always space for new ideas, new approaches and new leaders. This is God's house and all are invited to come.
