You’ll find us at 168 Stanmore Road, Linwood, Christchurch (click here for map) near the intersection with Avonside Drive. Since our church was destroyed then demolished following the earthquakes, our worship space is our wooden St Francis Hall. This hall has been renovated and improved and makes a very pleasant worship or meeting space with kitchen and toilet facilities. It is a good size for our congregation.
In general, if you wish to make contact with anyone in the parish, a good place to start is to phone our parish administrator at the office on 389 6948. Your best chances of getting to talk to a real person are on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings. If there’s nobody free to take your call, you can leave a message. The vicar and administrators offices are in the St Francis Hall building.
Or you can send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
