St Francis in the Fields is a worshipping community and offers many different worship experiences over the church year. As an Anglican Parish we draw upon our Anglican Heritage but we are not afraid to look for new ways to challenge our congregations. If what you experience is not your preference, then talk to the clergy about other options.
