St. Stephen's: Welcome
We are a small, welcoming and busy church at the foot of the railway bridge in Hightown; very much a part of the local community. Eucharistic worship, every Sunday at 10.30am, is ”middle of the road” and there are alternative worship opportunities: BCP (Book of Common Prayer) Evensong every Sunday at 6.00pm.
Enquirers and Nurture courses are run regularly. New members and visitors are always given a special welcome. St. Stephen’s Youth Club meets every Friday in term-time at 6.00pm in the Church Hall.
We have a large and excellent, well-equipped parish hall, which is available to hire.
St. Stephen’s has a friendly and inclusive feel, which comes from the warmth and enthusiasm of its people.
If you haven’t already, why not give us a try?
It is the 100th anniversary of the end of World War 1 on the 11th November. As well as our Act of Remembrance at 11am around the war memorial, this armistice will be remembered in Hightown, over the weekend, with an exhibition in St Stephen’s Church Hall of WW1 items and Clive Harris’ exhibition of his biographical findings of each of the men whose names are on the memorial. This year as we hear the names being read out; we will know more about these men who were killed in this war. That’s a tribute to the men who gave their lives; they are no longer just names but are now people we know about.
