Each Sunday we celebrate the Holy Eucharist at 8:00am and 10:00am. Our early service is held at the altar and offers an intimate, contemplative style without music, although a full sermon is preached. Our 10:00am service features choral music and congregational singing. The service is Rite II and draws on a variety of traditional and contemporary liturgical resources. It is followed by a child-friendly gathering with coffee, juice, and fresh food in the parish hall.
Godly Play, Children’s education and professional childcare are offered during the main service, although children are always welcome in the sanctuary and we have backpacks of soft-play materials available for those who wish to stay. Several times a year our children’s choir, the “Songmakers,” is featured during the 10am service, and our older teens often accompany our worship with hand-bells, drums and other instruments.
All are welcome to receive the Eucharist or a blessing at St. Stephen’s, and there are many opportunities for service, from choir and the Altar guild to lay Eucharistic ministry and pastoral visitation. Anyone who feels called to any ministry is invited to call us at 973-376-0688.
