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.
We have a large and excellent, well-equipped parish hall, which is available to hire.

However, this week’s conversations with two of my children have reminded me our climate is changing. It is now urgent, and we have to do more than just recycling.
Alice's Flooded School 1My daughter Alice works in a primary school in Todmorden West Yorkshire (yes, it did used to be in Lancashire!). Todmorden has always flooded occasionally but this year it has flooded three times already.
St. Stephens Hightown takes its duty and obligation to protect all extremely seriously.
