St Stephen’s hopes that you are finding life better with the lessening of restrictions and the coming of warmer weather. We pray that the vaccine will keep the epidemic at bay so we can feel safe in the future. The churches will be open for services as they were in May. Please wear masks, follow social distancing, and use sanitisers to keep everyone safe. We will also, where possible, continue sharing with the other churches services on Zoom.

THE CHURCH YARD CLEAR UP was moved to 15th May due to bad weather. A lot of work was achieved but we would welcome more volunteers in the future. We are keen to nurture the rich flora and fauna and are considering an area for rewilding without letting the place get untidy. Please contact Pauline (email below) if you are interested. 

REPAIRS Replacement of the south and porch roof is now under way. As Collyweston slates are extremely expensive it will certainly mean we will be short when we do eventually get permission to have the water and toilet installed. So watch this space for fund raising activities. 

ST.STEPHENS PHOTOGRAPHIC COMPETITION: By now your photos should all be submitted in the virtual Padlet gallery for judging, but if you have experienced difficulties then please contact me at or
