Services and Worship
Worship lies at the heart of the Christian life. It is through finding God in worship that we are transformed as His people.
At St Stephens our services are centred around the Mass (or Holy Communion) where we participate in the saving grace of Our Lord's death on the cross.
Jesus said to them, ‘Very truly, I tell you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you.
John 6: 53

You will not need to book a place at midweek service. You will need to complete the attendance register with your contact details so we comply with NHS Test and Trace requirements.
At our service we shall be subject to continued strict adherence to the rules and guidelines. In particular it is vitally important that we maintain social distancing, properly worn masks, and above all we must not congregate either before or after any mass, including weekdays.
On arrival there must be no pausing for chat in the narthex and certainly no gathering outside after mass.
