St Stephen's Church, Canterbury

Welcome to St Stephen's Church in the ancient city of Canterbury.  People have worshiped in our church for nearly a thousand years, and we continue this week by week. We are an inclusive community, and everyone is welcome.  Our worship is traditional, dignified, spiritual, and supported by excellent choral and organ music.

The parish of St Stephen's, Canterbury, is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer(s), PSOs. The Diocese of Canterbury’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services
