- Saint Francis of Assisi


Here you will find the online home of the Anglican Greyfriars.

Founded on the 1st of March, 2023, we trace our heritage back to the arrival of the first nine Friars on Britain's shores in 1224. Our Charism is very much focussed on the Franciscan life, lived within the Parish and wider Diocese, with particular focus on serving the poor and the marginalised, whether spiritually, materially, or otherwise.

The seven emphases of our “Way of Life” are:

  • Poverty

  • Chastity

  • Obedience

  • Prayer, Solitude,  Silence, & Retreat

  • Eucharist

  • Mission & Ministry

  • Formation.

As a dispersed community, we are open to vocations from men and women (whether single or in a relationship), from the Church of England (including the Diocese in Europe), the Church in Wales, the Scottish Episcopal Church, and the Church of Ireland.

You can easily find more information on the "About Us" and "FAQ" page. Alternatively, feel free to contact us via email, or social media (details on "Contact Us" page).
