Welcome

Amidst all the uncertainly of life, the good news of the Christian faith is that God loves you for being the unique, special, individual that you are. None of us have to worry about being perfect in mind, body or spirit before we can respond to God’s invitation to ‘come and see.’
 
St Stephen’s would absolutely love to welcome you, your friends and your family to our church. Services are at 10am on Wednesday (BCP Holy Communion ) and on Sundays at 10am (Holy Communion) with an informal non-communion family service on the first Sunday of each month at 10am (communion on those Sundays being at 9am).
 
Our hope and prayer is that we help your spirit soar, your heart to sing and your soul to find rest by God’s love and grace through his Son Jesus Christ.

Earlier in the year we posted regular online reflections on our YouTube page. Click here to look at these.

Polite Notice: St Stephen’s Church does not have a car park. You are asked not to double park on St Stephen’s Road or park inconsiderately thus obstructing access for residents and emergency vehicles when attending services or events in our church building or church hall.
