St Denys’, Stanford Dingley has now closed temporarily for building work. This is expected to commence on 19th November and take approximately three months. The building will reopen in the spring, the exact date to be confirmed nearer the time.  Meanwhile, the church congregation and any visitors will be very welcome at any services in Bradfield or Bucklebury during the closure. We are very sorry for the inconvenience caused by the temporary closure, but are very excited at how the church and wider community will benefit from this project to renew and refresh St Denys’.
