Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic,
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?
These are not easy times, are they? Words I’ve not heard put together before are now common parlance: social isolation, lock down, social distancing and I know more about viruses than I’ve ever known: ordinary soap kills them but no matter how powerful the antibiotics are, they don’t touch them.
All this change and worry has affected me. I’m often feeling befuddled (is that a word? If it is, it’s not one I’ve used before). There’s another word I’d use to describe my mind which is discombobulated; I didn’t know this was an actual word but it’s in my dictionary and means confused and disconcerted. Well, that’s me at the moment.
There are times we should question, times we should doubt. I’m a great believer in doubting; we are intelligent beings not automatons and what we believe needs thinking through, questioning and checking; also being willing to say ‘I’m not sure’ or ‘I don’t know’ is good. This process takes time.
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.
