St. Denys' Church, Kirkby la Thorpe

Our school has a close relationship with our parish church of St. Denys.  Rector Val Greene, the retired incumbent of the church, is an active member of our school family.  We are currently awaiting the appointment of a new incumbent for our church.  


Collective worship takes place in our church on a monthly basis, along with other services such as Christingle.  


Children regularly visit our church with their class teachers as a place for quiet reflection and the church is our place of safety in the case of a critical incident.


Saint Denys

According to Christian tradition, Saint Denys is a Christian martyr and saint. In the third century, he was Bishop of Paris. He was martyred shortly after 250 AD. Denys is said to have picked his head up (after it was chopped off!), and walk six miles, while preaching a sermon of repentance.  He is regarded with great respect in the Roman Catholic Church as patron of Paris, France, and as one of the Fourteen Holy Helpers
