Welcome 

 COVID-19 UPDATE - NOVEMBER 2020
Sadly, in order to comply with the latest Covid restrictions, St Denys' church will once again have to close for services from Thursday 5th November and so there will be no Sunday services in church until at least 2nd December. However the Ministry Team will be pre-recording a Remembrance Sunday service which will be uploaded to YouTube at 10.45am on Sunday so that we can watch a service which will have been recorded in St Denys prior to the new Lockdown regulations coming into force. Rest assured that just as soon as the restrictions are relaxed and Church services are possible once again we will revert to live services in Church (and on Livestream), but in the meantime there will be pre-recorded services each Sunday in the same way as there were during the first period of lockdown.

“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."

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.

NEW HEATING AT ST DENYS
The PCC wish to give a huge Thank You to the Rotherfield TrustGarfield Weston Foundation and Allchurches Trust Ltd for their very generous grants towards the cost of installing a brand new radiator based heating system at St Denys' to replace our old, worn out and inefficient fan based system.

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 when church services are eventually allowed to resume in a normal unrestricted way we will be able to welcome everyone back to a comfortably warm church.
