“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


 St Denys' Church,

Open for visitors generally
from 9am - dusk in the winter months (Oct to Mar) and 9am - 5pm in the summer (Apr to Sept).


 St Mark's Church,
Mark Cross

Open for visitors generally
from 8am - 4pm/dusk in the
winter months and until 6pm
in the summer.

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.
