COVID-19 UPDATE - SEPTEMBER 2021
On 25th July some restrictions were lifted. Congregational singing is back! Wearing a face mask will be up to each individual and an area will be provided for those that still prefer to wear masks and social distancing. Hand-gel will still be used in and out of church. Track and trace lists will no longer be taken, however, we strongly advise anyone displaying COVID symptoms not to visit church. If you have recently visited and then develop symptoms please inform us as soon as possible. The full details from the Ministry Team can be seen HERE
MONDAY 27th SEPTEMBER 2021 COVID UPDATE
How we receive Holy Communion was reviewed by the Ministry Team today and the decision was made to continue with the current practice of receiving in one kind only (bread) rather than re-introducing wine at this time. This decision was reached with the safety of everyone in mind. We will continue to monitor and review the situation.

St Denys' Mission Action Plan
St Denys' Church,
WE WILL SOON BE RE-OPENING ON WEEKDAYS
Open for visitors generally from 8.30am - dusk in the winter months (Oct to Mar) and 8.30am - 5pm in the summer (Apr to Sept)
St Mark's Church,
St Mark's Church is part of Mark Cross Community Centre which is not left open, unless individuals or groups have made a booking. You are most welcome to join us and visit, when there is a Sunday Service.
TO DONATE FUNDS ONLINE TO
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 are here 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.

NEW HEATING AT ST DENYS
Work will still be continuing for some months in order to meet all the requirements of the faculty granted to the Church to enable the new heating to be installed and further fund raising will still be required. However these three grants, along with all the fundraising which has taken place by The Friends of St Denys' and by individual members of the church in the past few years, has meant that we can now welcome to a comfortably warm church.
