Stanford in the Vale with Goosey and Hatford

Tel: 01367 710267


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 Evensong to a weekly service for young families. 

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.


Our usual pattern of services is

  • a 10:15am Holy Communion service each Sunday at St Denys
  • Denys@4 interactive service for young families at 4pm each Sunday at St Denys
  • Evensong twice a month at 6pm alternating between All Saints, Goosey and St George's Hatford. See the Parish Newsletter and website calendar
