    St Denys is a welcoming church in the Evangelical tradition, standing at the heart of Stanford in the Vale.  St Denys is one of three worshipping centres in the Parish of Stanford in the Vale with Goosey & Hatford, within the Diocese of Oxford in the Church of England. 

         We attract people from a variety of different Christian backgrounds and seek to make everybody welcome, whether you already count yourself as a Christian, or are just looking.  We offer a range of services from the 1662 Prayer Book to very informal family worship, and a monthly Messy Church in the village hall.

         You are very welcome to join us at any of our services. On this site you should find everything you need to know about us. If you want to speak to us further about anything, then please see details on Who's Who page.

     

    Services & Covid-19

    We are pleased to be meeting in person again. Our usual pattern is a 10:15am Holy Communion service each Sunday, except the 4th Sunday when it will be Morning Worship. 

     

    We are maintaining our Covid restrictions to keep worshippers safe, and require worshippers to antibac hands at the door, register attendance at the welcome desk,  maintain social distancing, and wear a face covering unless they have a health reason that prevents them. If you have any Covid symptoms and/or have symptoms of a cold/Influenza, please do not attend church to respect those who may have immune deficiencies.

    Children

    St Denys Kids meets in the small Village Hall for children from Reception to Year 6. Please would parents/guardians drop children off by 10:10am, and collect them after the service. 

    Covid Risk Assessments

    Here are the updated covid-19 risk assessment for public worship and life event services at St Denys St Denys service risk assessment 23 July 2021 and St Denys Kids Risk assessment.

     The Incumbent and PCC deem that it is still not safe to hold public services at the small chapels of All Saints, Goosey and St George's, Hatford due to size making social distancing impossible. Here are the Risk Assessments for these buildings:
