A warm welcome awaits you when you visit St Denys’ or St Mark's Church.

As a Christian  community,  we seek to proclaim Jesus  Christ and his teaching in all that we  do:  in  our worship and the lives that  we live. We are here  to encourage  and support everyone to discover the joy of knowing God and engaging in service, prayer,  Bible study and worship at every stage in their lives.

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 whether you come to worship God or simply stop by for a minute to be still.  We appreciate that the buildings do not belong to us and that we are simply entrusted with them to pass on to generations to come. While local congregations help to maintain and finance the Christian ministry it is the responsibility of the whole community in Rotherfield and Mark Cross to maintain these important community facilities.

NEW HEATING AT ST DENYS 

The PCC wish to give a huge Thank You to the Rotherfield Trust, Garfield 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 we can now welcome you to a comfortably warm church.
