St Francis - Junior Church 

A dedicated group of leaders run our junior church on a Sunday morning at the start of the service at 9.45. They run activities to bring the Bible to life for the children by doing games, craft and story telling they then come and join the rest of the church family in communion and share with everyone about the fantastic things they have learned. 

Junior church is open to all young people.
