St Nicholas’ Church is a very friendly, family orientated church. All visitors are very welcome, and will be made to feel at home quickly. Take a look at our events and find out if there is something that you want to come along to.

St John’s has always been popular for weddings and christenings, and we are still very much available to help you celebrate the new stage of your family life. Just ask and we will help you through the process.

St John’s Church is well supported by the local community group, @friendsofdenbychurch as we aim to find a positive future for our church. We have been working together to make the building more multi-purpose so that the whole community can use the space; we are part way through this reordering project, and have laid a beautiful new level floor. Stage 3 involves new audio visual equipment, lighting, and entrance way. To make a booking enquiry please get in touch with Gill:
