Within the church we can find some beautiful works of art. The masterpiece is the 17th century painting “The adoration of the Magi” by the painter Gaspar De Crayer from Antwerp. It can be seen above the main altar.
Above the right side altar we can see an impressive 17th century triptych dedicated to the patron saint of the church, Saint Dyonisius (or Saint Denis). The middle panel represents “The beheading of Denis”. The left panel shows “The preaching of Denis” and the right panel “Denis carries his head to his grave”. At the bottom right we can see a depiction of priest Jan van der Sijpe, who presumably gave the triptych to the church as a gift. The left side altar is dedicated to Our Lady.
The northern transept also contains a side altar, dedicated to Saint Anne, mother to the Virgin Mary. The painting above the altar (ca. 1611) represents “The education of Mary”. The side altar in the southern transept is dedicated to Saint Sebastian. We can see him at the top, flanked by two archers.
The church possesses two richly adorned baroque confessionals (17th century). One of them shows a representation of Our Lady with Child and is decorated with little angels. The other one depicts Christ the Redeemer surrounded by angels and accompanied by the prophet Nathan, the saints Peter and Paul and King David.
