A number of children's coats and jackets etc., have been left in the Hall Cloakroom in the last 12 months.
If your child is missing an article of clothing could you call into the Hall to check whether it is there ?
Any items unclaimed by the end of November will be donated to Charity.
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 wrote about Eco-Church and this month I can update you on the ‘Eco-Church’ survey we have done to see how good/not good St Stephen’s Church is in conservation and how environmentally friendly we are.
We are doing well in most areas. We try to keep single use plastics to a minimum. If you’ve had food or drink at our coffee mornings or events in our hall, you know we use reusable cups, saucers and cutlery. We gradually are replacing our light bulbs to LED ones and buy Eco-electricity. We use Fair-trade tea and coffee. We recycle our paper. We are aware how our climate change affects the poorest people of the world - this is mentioned in our prayers and sermons.
We scored very poorly in our use of land. We have a fair bit of land around the church and church hall and all we do with it is cut the grass. Yes, it looks tidy but that’s its only merit. Some of this land could be home to insects and pollinators if we encourage wild flowers to grow. These wilder areas will be managed; otherwise trees and perennial weeds take over. So watch this space as we begin to make changes.
St. Stephens Hightown takes its duty and obligation to protect all extremely seriously.
We have adopted the national Church of England's robust procedures and guidelines.
