Welcome to St. Stephen's Church. We are an Episcopal Church, a branch of the world-wide Anglican Communion, which includes an estimated 70 million people representing 64,000 congregations in 164 countries. St. Stephen;s was founded on October 10, 1842, and the existing building was completed a year later. It is designated a landmark in the National Register of Historic Places, and anchors the Bedford Road Historic District.
St. Stephen's welcomes those from any faith tradition who are seeking a church home. If you are already an Episcopalian, you can write to your former parish for a formal letter of transfer. For non-Episcopalians, the usual way to formally join our church is to be confirmed or received by our bishops. If you're not quite ready for this formal step, please know that you are still welcome to be a part of our church community
