St Francis United Church has been multi-denominational since its inception, sponsored by the Anglican and Methodist churches.

As such our facilities are available to both members and others who wish to use the church for special occasions. Regular services are held every Sunday morning, with an evening service every second Sunday of the month. We have an active Sunday school for children    during the morning service, and a Youth group for teenagers on Friday nights. St Francis United Church is also available for weddings, funerals and memorial services.
