About us

st. Stephen's is an orthodox Anglican church. As a community of believers in Jesus Christ, we are an expression of the One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church. In Christ, we are united with all true believers and the heavenly chorus of angels and saints as we follow the order of worship prescribed by the Book of Common Prayer.

Through worship we are a part of something much greater than ourselves. We are participants in the Kingdom of God manifest in our individual lives, our families, our community, and the world.

St. Stephen’s is an intergenerational community rooted in the Gospel of Jesus Christ crucified. It is a place where you can ask the hard questions. We are committed to walking this life together in love and grace. You would be a most welcome addition to our family. Come and see what it is that Christ is doing in and through us. Come and find a home worshipping and praising the Lord with us.
