Click here for the latest updates on how Coronavirus is affecting St Stephen's

Government guidance on COVID restrictions have now changed. We have decided that we will take a cautious and gradual approach to removing restrictions, and so the following guidance will be in place for St Stephen's from Monday. We hope that you will share with us the desire to balance keeping everyone as safe as we can with beginning the journey back to normal. This guidance will be updated again before the end of August. For full details please see our covid-19 updates page.

There are no live streamed services this Sunday, 25th July as Steve and the choir are singing the services in Rochester Cathedral. During August, we will be live streaming only our Eucharist, but Choral Evensong will return in September!

Virtual after-service coffee

If the button doesn't automatically open Zoom on your device, you can enter manually using the Meeting id 868 8981 9069 and password 1592. The Zoom meeting should be available immediately after the live stream of the service ends.
