What do we get up to?

What do we get up to?

There's lots going on in the parish and we're looking to do more. We have three amazing and adaptable buildings that offer us and the community fabulous spaces. We've had concerts and events in our church buildings as well as markets and Christmas Tree festivals! If you'd like to use one of our buildings for an event, please get in touch! 

We've listed some of the services below that take place regularly. There are more details of everything else that goes on in the menus above. The parish calendar is at the bottom of the page. 

Across the four churches of St John's, St Luke's, St Francis and St Alban's we have a range of services. Hopefully there's something to suit everyone. On a Sunday at St Francis the clergy robe, there are servers and incense. At St Luke's and St John 's there's often a robed choir and sometimes incense. We'll also occasionally have songs led from the front with guitar and piano. There's lots for those across the generations to engage in! We'd love to see you! We livestream as much as we can

There are car parks at all churches; St Alban's (a small car park accessible from Linwood Road) and St John's (accessible from Vicarage Road). St Francis' car park is on the corner of Charminster Road and East Way. St Luke's car park is on St Luke's Road. All three churches are on or very near bus routes. Access to St John's church building is step-free, likewise St Francis and St Luke's. There are toilet facilities at each church. At St John's these are not step-free and not accessible to wheelchair users or those with accessibility needs.  At St Francis there are toilets within the church building. At St Luke's the toilets are in the hall - accessible via the car park with step-free access with a large accessible toilet. The toilets at St Alban's (including an accessible toilet) are in the lobby between church and hall with step-free access. A map and directions can be found under the 'Find us' menu.
