The Archbishops of Canterbury and York have announced that all public worship in the Church of England is suspended until further notice with immediate effect. This means that there will be no Sunday services at St Stephen’s until we receive notification that these can resume.

While we are unable to meet on Sundays we will be providing prayer and worship resources for you to use on Sundays and during the week. Visit ‘Praying Together’ for weekday resources and ‘Sermons and Services’ for service podcasts and children’s material for use on Sundays.
