“We are committed to being a church that is centred on Christ, expects great
things of God, allows the Holy Spirit to be at work within our lives, looks
forward to all God wants to give us, and reaches out to the people around us.
We know that God will expect great things from us within his love for us." 

St Denys' Mission Action Plan - March 2013

Diochi CofE Logo


As a Christian community, we seek to proclaim Jesus Christ and his teaching in all that we do: in our worship and by the lives that we live.  We try to encourage and support people in their lives through service, prayer, Bible study and worship.

We are delighted to be part of the wider community and many people in our congregations are involved in the various clubs and groups that are part of our life here.  We aspire to be a means of good for the life of our community of Rotherfield, Mark Cross and the surrounding area.

We are blessed with two beautiful buildings.  They are uplifting places to worship God.  We appreciate that the buildings do not belong to us.  We are entrusted with them and whilst the local congregation help to maintain and finance the Christian ministry at St Denys' and St Mark's, we feel it is for the whole of Rotherfield and Mark Cross.  They can come and be part of us as much as they feel able.

A warm welcome awaits all who visit into St Denys’ or St Mark's Church.

A wonderful tour to GREECE

Led by Rev Nigel Mason

Tues 5th - Wed 13th May 2015

“May, I invite you to join us in our trip to Greece to follow in the footsteps of one of the giants of the Christian faith, the Apostle Paul. We take the opportunity to explore places he visited and preached the gospel in those early days of the church; cities, towns and sites - names which have become familiar to many of us over the years.

We hope you will find it a relaxed and informative trip in the company of a warm and friendly church group.

Please do join us!”
