The church is dedicated to St Deny`s, the patron Saint of France.

St Denys was built in 1923 for a Soldier Settlement at Amiens, where over 700 returned soldiers were allocated blocks in what became the Pikedale Soldier Settlement.

Altar ornaments came from the Australian base at Le Havre and are believed to originate from the Cathedral in Amiens, France, as a token of gratitude for Aussie soldiers in France during the 1914 -18 war.
