St. Francis of Assisi, Welwyn Garden City

St. Francis church is in the centre of Welwyn. It was designed by Louis de Soissons who was the chief designer of the garden city. Built in 1934-5 it doesn’t look much from the outside but is striking inside. There is a nice welcome notice on the door and the church is open each day. The inside is light and airy. There is a ‘Children’s Chapel’ as well with a good view of the altar. I have not seen anything similar elsewhere.

There is a votive stand to use and a lovely side chapel. The church website is at http://www.stfranciswgc.org.uk but it has no visitor information on it. St. Francis is well worth a visit.
