St Stephen On-The-Cliffs

We are an Anglo-Catholic church, maintaining traditional Catholic liturgy, preaching and teaching as the Church of England has received it. This is reflected in our style of worship and music.

We welcome everyone, irrespective of faith or belief, as one of God’s children and invite all who are full members of other Christian denominations to receive communion at Mass.

Anyone who attends a service is invited to come to the altar at the time of communion to receive a blessing.

Our church building is here for everyone and we try to keep it open most days from morning through to early evening. You are welcome to come along whether is to look at our beautiful building, visit the Actor's Chapel or to sit in quiet prayer and light a candle.

Our Mission Statement

To achive this we will:
