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?
This month I thought I’d share with you the sermon I gave at Revd Annette’s funeral. Yes, it’s personal but it’s what I wanted to say. Here it is…
Looking back over my life, role models have been very important. I remember being pregnant and thinking: breast feed or bottle feed and worrying breast feeding might be too hard. Then my friend Christine had Jayne and breast fed, and I watched and thought - yes I can do that and I did.
When my children were all at school I wondered about being a secondary school teacher and worried that teaching teenagers might be too hard and then my friend Gill became a teacher and she told me about it and I thought - yes I can do that and I did.
St. Stephens Hightown takes its duty and obligation to protect all extremely seriously.

During this current crisis, whilst services in church are suspended, we are unfortunately unable to receive food bank donations. We would however, urge people to donate at the supermarket where they shop as we understand supermarkets are matching each item donated.
Remember the five most needed items are:
UHT Milk, - Cordial / Juice, - Tinned Tomatoes, - Tinned Fish, - Tinned Rice Pudding.
Remember the need continues and is increasing.
