Reverend Jenny Fennell // Vicar
I have been Vicar here at St Francis since 2010 and ordained since 2002. I have a passion for creating communities and making sure that the church provides an opportunity for all to encounter God and fellowship.
I work closely with the Assistant Curate and the Children and Families' Worker and we are always keen to meet new people. Do make yourself known if you are new or have any questions.

Reverend Liz Lavelle // Assistant Curate
I’ve been the Assistant Curate at St Francis since July 2016. Having spent 30 years in secondary school education - 27 as a Head of Music, I was then deaconed in 2016, and priested in 2017. I am particularly passionate about pastoral ministry, reaching out into the community, and youth ministry. I am married with two children, and have lived in Hatfield for most of my life.
I feel very thankful to have been called to serve in this wonderful community – to be a part of sharing the good news of Jesus in this place, and his invitation to follow him; the invitation that enables us to come, and to encourage others to come, to be made new in our relationship with him, and in doing so to draw closer to God. To grow and deepen awareness of the love and grace of God in our lives; to share and encourage Christian values and the importance of following Christ’s example - in love and service; to love God, and his people.

Nikki Clare // Children and Families' Worker
I look forward to meeting your family! I'm based here at St Francis on Wednesdays and Fridays and during Sunday services. I currently run Messy Church, Toddle time, Shake and Shimmy, Café Church and lead the preschool group on Sundays. I also help out with The Cellar Group (for older children) and Connect (for our Youth) and organise some larger scale events which involve the whole church family.
I am a level 3 qualified NNEB and have 15 years of childcare experience. Eight of those years I have been in Nursery management. I currently am a part time Nanny when I'm not here at St Francis. I am also a full time mum!
