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; Family Praise each 1st Sunday at 4.00pm, which is activity based and lasts 30mins; and Peewits, simple worship every Friday at 9.00am, with coffee, for Mums or carers with little ones.
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?
A butterfly is a symbol of the resurrection of Jesus. Of course, this makes Jesus before he died into a caterpillar! But there is some mileage in using a butterfly to convey the coming back to life of Jesus on that Sunday: the caterpillar turning into a chrysalis and then emerging from its ‘tomb’ into a beautiful, no longer earth bound, butterfly.
Blues are my favourite butterflies and I’m hoping on the dunes there may be some of the rarer blues. If you are a butterfly spotter, please tell me what butterflies I can expect to see in Hightown.....
