About Us

Welcome to St. Stephen's Church Hightown ----- Mission Statement ----- "St. Stephen’s Church, Hightown, is integral to community life,
welcoming and joyful in worship, and inspiring and loving in our ministry to children....."

We are a small, growing,  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 ”Liberal catholic”.  There are alternative worship opportunities: BCP (Book of Common Prayer) Evensong every Sunday at 6.00pm, and BCP Holy Communion on the 4th Sunday each month. There's a mid-week communion service which is quiet and prayerful. There's a monthly 'All-age' service which features our band on the first Sunday of the month. Children are always welcome and we don't mind noise! For pre-schoolers and their families, why not come along to Toddler Church on the 2nd Sunday of the month at 5pm?

Morning Prayer, every Friday morning at 09:30. 

Monthly Coffee Morning on the first Saturday of the month in the Church Hall. 10am.  Come together for some company, a chat and great bacon and sausage baps, or toasted teacake!

Enquirers and Nurture courses are run regularly. New members and visitors are always given a special welcome. St. Stephen’s Youth Club meets every Friday in term-time at 6.00pm in the Church Hall.

St. Stephen's Parents & Toddlers, every Friday morning term time, 09:30 to 11:30. All Welcome!

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?
