St Denys Walmgate

St Denys Church
  • serves a rapidly-changing parish in the most diverse corner of York city centre
  • strives to serve as a community resource for all
  • has a lively, friendly, growing and very varied congregation
  • is a Grade 1 listed mediaeval church with an outstanding array of stained glass
  • has recently completed two major projects, the restoration of the north aisle and the installation of a new organ!

One of the most important special missions of St Denys is to deaf and hard-of-hearing people. We have for many years offered a fully signed service for the deaf, with a ‘signing choir’ for hymns, on the first Sunday of every month. This is the only church in the Deanery of York where such services are available.

We aim to become a community hub for the whole parish, and to serve all the people both of ‘Old Walmgate’ and the ‘New Walmgate’.

On Sundays we have a service of Holy Communion at 10 am, with signing for the deaf on the 1st Sunday of the month.
