Welcome to our Anglican Franciscan Friary in rural Dorset
We are working on our 2024 Programme.
The theme is the 800th anniversary of Franciscan Friars coming to England in 1224.
There are already some finalised events. Visit our Programme Page to keep up to date.
Hilfield Vision Statement
In our daily living we aspire to be:
Rooted – we seek to live simply and gratefully, caring for the land that we have been entrusted with.
Christian – following Christ in the way of St Francis we care for the poor and marginalised
of our society and all of creation.
Family – an open and inclusive community that welcomes all people and creation.
Adopted by the Community on 4th September 2018
Hilfield and the wider Society of St Francis rely totally on donations for our income. The excess income generated at Hilfield supports SSF houses without their own income generation. You can Gift Aid your donation too. Simply fill in the online form or download the form, fill it in, scan and then email it to us or post it to us.
We are delighted to offer standing order donors complimentary Franciscan Magazines.
