We wish you every blessing for the new year

Services suspended

Due to the continuing Coronavirus pandemic and the high level of infections across London, we have decided to suspend our Sunday services for the time being. So there will be no services in St Stephen’s from 3rd January until further notice.

We will issue a recorded service for each Sunday that can be accessed on the ‘Sermons and services’ page of this website and on a recorded service phone line – 02080501091

(Please be aware that the phone line is charged at your network provider’s rate for calling an 0208 number. Check with your provider for any possible costs)

The services will remain on the website as part of our archive and be accessible on the phone line for 7 days. You are encouraged to listen to the service at 11 am each Sunday and then log on to Zoom for an after service catch-up.


Children and young people

Our dreams group for year 6 and above is meeting online and occasionally in the church halls.
Contact Mat Barber on matthew@urbanhope.co.uk to find out more

For primary aged children, we issue a ‘Podcast for Kids’ each week.
This has prayers, thoughts and stories to enjoy.
You can find the podcast on the ‘Sermons and services’ page of this site and on the recorded phone line – 02080501091.
