St Francis Church has three values: Playful, Hospitable and Responding. These are represented by the kite, a cup of tea and the leaping man.
Playful: the Kite
We want to be a church where laughter runs free, where there is freedom to enjoy and to find and pursue joy. A church where, though sensitive about the important issues, we are able to laugh about the simpler ones.
Hospitable: The Cup of Tea
We want to be a church where the hospitality doesn’t stop on a sunday. Where the love that we share when we meet also grows every other day, in every other place.
Responding: The Leaping Person
In responding to the words and works of God in Christ we want to not only draw closer to the cross, seeking healing, reconciliation and reconstitution (re-membering), but also to never recede from God’s people. We want to place grace, discipleship, healing, and mission at the centre of our responses to God.
