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.
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?
Last month I wondered what you were doing in response to climate change - what actions you were taking. Two people emailed me and here’s some of what they’ve told me.
“We have Solar Panels: we try to use washing machine and dishwasher when sun is shining well and no power is coming from the grid. Try to use only one machine at a time. We get a payment for what we contribute to the grid. Garden: we grow lots of fruit and as much veg as we can. Share plant cuttings rather than buy them Compost all green material. Veg peelings to compost bin and rest to council bin. Insulation: House has cavity wall insulation as has loft and eaves, over and above national minimum requirements.”
“We try to remember to use the "bag for life" so we have them in the cars or folded in a handbag etc. Today we have received a magazine in a recyclable "plastic" bag. This can be added to the compost it says on the bag which was made in Austria. Very encouraging as it proves it can be done.”
I am wondering, if you feel strongly about this, would you please write a letter asking the people who send you magazines to use compostable bags.
St. Stephens Hightown takes its duty and obligation to protect all extremely seriously.
