Eaton Church - St. Denys





















The Church of the People

Welcome to the web page for St Denys Parish Church, Church Lane, Eaton, Grantham NG32 1SL.


The Norman Church of Saint Denys, Eaton stands proudly on a hill in the centre of the village.  It overlooks a beautiful valley and is made of Ironstone, which has been quarried locally, and has a delightfully warm hue.  The Church dates back to the 12th Century and has many fascinating details to admire.


The Church is named after Denys, patron saint of Paris.  He was one of seven Bishops sent to convert Gaul, later he became Bishop of Paris before becoming a martyr at Montmatre (Martyrs' Hill).  In 626 his remains were moved to King Dagobert's foundation of St.-Denis, the famous Benedictine Abbey, near Paris.

A prayer corner and library with Christian literature is available for all.  Take time to pause and relax in this very special place.
