The Parish Church of St Stephen has been the centre of its community for over 900 years, and remains so today. Our mission is to equip God's people for their place in the world, through lively worship, intelligent preaching, warm fellowship and enriching teaching. We are a church in the Catholic tradition of the Church of England, with a thriving robed choir of an excellent standard, and flourishing children's work. We have strong connections with the University of Kent at Canterbury and with Canterbury Christ Church University College, and local community organisations. If you are 9 months or 90 years old, or anywhere in between, we look forward to welcoming you.
