Welcome to our Parish



We are a friendly parish with worshippers of all ages.

We believe that God is calling us to be the church that he wants us to be by growing closer to Him and each other through worship and fellowship.


We also believe He calls us to proclaim and demonstrate His love effectively within our community by the reality of our faith.


There are two churches in our parish:
St Francis’ Church in Beckingham Road, Westborough.
St Clare’s Church at the junction of Southway and Cabell Road, Park Barn.
