Originally dedicated to St. Denis, the parish church of Bradninch became more popularly known as St. Disen’s in the late 19th century. According to legend St. Disen was a 7th century Irish hermit who visiting this area, found no place of worship and so built the first church with his own hands. Our present church dates from the 13th to the 20th centuries and is home to a magnificent painted screen dating from the 15th century. The church is much loved as you will see by the care lavished upon it. It has an atmosphere of calm, friendliness, peace and prayer. We extend a warm invitation to you to join us in our worship or just drop in at anytime when the church is open to look around our lovely building and/or for a moment of quiet and reflection.
