To apply: On the first Friday of every month between 7.30-8.30pm our wardens host ‘Enquiry Hour’. This is a drop in session where you are able to meet our wardens, ask any questions you may have and organise getting your banns read at the church. No need to book, just turn up and say hello!¬†Please bring your passports (or some form of official identification).

Baptisms @ St Stephen’s

If you attend St Stephen’s or you live in the Parish of New Town and the Hythe and are interested in getting your child baptised please contact the church office and we will put you in touch with the right person.

We also offer a Service of Thanksgiving for those who would like God’s blessing on their child but without making the promises and commitments associated with baptism.
