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?
I love Christenings: Sunday afternoons, families coming together usually all dressed up, proud parents and Godparents, a chance to pray for the child and make him or her a member of the world wide church.
I’m sad that I haven’t done one Hightown christening since I came last November. Perhaps no-one wants their child christened - and that’s fine; perhaps Father David is christening all the babies of Hightown - and that’s wonderful! However, just in case you’re thinking about getting your child christened and haven’t got around to it, here’s some information.
