St Francis Regular Services

Having enjoyed some very special services over Easter, St Francis has now resumed its regular 9:30 am morning services. Each Sunday we follow a service from the New Zealand Prayer Book, hear and reflect on Scripture, and share communion together.

On the fourth Sunday of each month, there is opportunity to receive healing prayer – either for yourself, or on behalf of another – immediately following the communion.

After the service, we reconnect with one another over morning tea.

Our peaceful church is a quiet place of refuge set among the lush bush found in Titirangi.

Inside you will find an open worship and meeting space with a beautifully designed gold cross (by Stephen Bambury) above the altar.

Everyone is welcome – visitors often comment on the warmth of the welcome they receive.

Prayer of St Francis

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is discord, unity;
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is error, truth;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is sadness, joy;
Where there is darkness, light.

A Local Shared Ministry Unit

St Francis is a welcoming church in the heart of the bush, in the peaceful and nurturing environment of the Waitakeres.

Often at a morning service in the spring or summer you may see the tuis through the windows above the simple sanctuary with its beautifully designed cross and its finely handcrafted banners.
