Communal Life

At St Francis we’re looking at some exciting developments to strengthen our discipleship through communal life.  We aim to work together to live a life faithful to Christ.  


We will be taking our principles from the Third Order of the Society of St Francis https://tssf.org.uk/about-the-third-order/the-principles-of-the-third-order/and our Rule of Life from Winchester Diocese: https://www.winchester.anglican.org/rule-of-life/

Aims

· To make our Lord Jesus Christ known and loved everywhere

· To spread the spirit of love and harmony

· To live simply

Values

· Humility

· Love

· Joy

The Three Ways of Service

· Prayer

· Work

Winchester Diocese is holding a Rule of Life workshop at Wolvsey, Winchester on Wed Dec 4th 2-4.30pm which I shall be attending.  If anyone would like to join me, please let me know (contact me through the website). 


From Monday 4th Nov we will be meeting for prayer every day (except Saturday):


You can find the words for Morning Prayer on this website: http://commonprayer.net

Wednesday   Holy Communion (7pm)

Sunday   Parish Eucharist (10.30am every week)

We would love you to join us when you can and our Night Prayer (Compline) will be live streamed on Facebook.  If you can’t join us physically at night, you can join with us virtually through Facebook. You can download our service book from the website or collect one from church. 

Discipleship is a journey and we look forward to you journeying with us as we move forward into a new venture.  We’ll keep you updated on ideas and invites as we go.  If you have any suggestions to make, please do that through the website email or see us in person at church.
