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?
At St Stephen’s Church, once a month during our Sunday 10.30am service (usually the 2nd Sunday), we have a practice of offering a prayer for healing along with laying on of hands.
What’s happening when we do this? What do we hope to achieve by this?
When we are ill or unwell, we want to get better. This getting better can be straightforward. Time is a great healer, we say. ‘Try this,’ the doctor might say as we receive a prescription. This getting better might take a few days; it might take much longer but together, time and medicine, can produce the healing we want, and we are back to normal. Did you have that nasty cold virus before Christmas? I did and thankfully I’m better now.
