With the recent Government Guidelines to re-open our churches for services, we are awaiting information from the Church of England and the Diocese . We will announce any updates on re-opening St Denys' here, when the Ministry and Leadership Team have met to make the appropriate arrangements.
12th June 2020
With the recent Government and Diocese Guidelines to re-open our churches for individual prayer only, St Denys’ Church will initially be open, occasionally for 3 hours at a given time, and supervised by two of the Ministry Team. In order to help people social distance and to make use of the quiet of the church, we are operating a booking system. If you would like to use the church for individual prayer, please call Rev Sandi Wickens on 07395 106514. This at first may seem extreme, but we will assess the method of access, demand and procedures regularly, and adapt accordingly. The church is not permitted to be open for visitors or tourists. The letter sent to our church members, which includes a full list of our current procedures can be viewed here.

THE JULY MAGAZINE
The August Magazine
“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
Open for visitors generally
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.
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.
