The Collect for The Seventh Sunday after Trinity
From Common Worship

Lord of all power and might,
the author and giver of all good things:
graft in our hearts the love of your name,
increase in us true religion,
nourish us with all goodness,
and of your great mercy keep us in the same;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
Amen.

Support St Stephen’s financially

It costs over £1,700 a week to keep St Stephen’s open for worship. This includes the costs of having our own Rector, and the costs of keeping the building in good condition, heating in the winter and lighting for services, and supports our musical work with young people. We receive no funding from the Government or the Church of England to maintain our ancient and beautiful building.

Could you contribute towards the costs of our ministry?

St Stephen’s Choir

St Stephen’s is proud to have a strong choral tradition, with a robed choir singing the Sung Eucharist and Choral Evensong services each Sunday. The choir also has a reputation for singing excellent choral services in cathedrals around the south of England. New singers are always welcome to join us!

Bell ropes
Ring our bells!

St Stephen’s has a fine ring of eight bells, and a team of excellent ringers, but more are needed to keep the bells ringing, calling people to worship as they have done for hundreds of years. Would you like to join our team and learn a new skill?
