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?
In this month’s article, I’m writing about the link between Easter and life after death. We celebrate Easter for many reasons, one of which is because it has granted us life after death.
After being killed on Good Friday, Jesus rose from the dead on Easter Sunday and he will die no more. Because of his resurrection and a consequence of it, we believe we too will have life beyond our death. I imagine it’s like there was a road block and we were unable to pass through to the other side but at Jesus’ resurrection, he did break through to the other side and so we are able to pass there too.
