Easing of restrictions
As the Government prepares to lower Coronavirus restrictions, the Churchwardens and I are giving careful thought to how we continue to unlock at
St Stephen’s, striving to keep each other safe while offering the richest worship that we can. We invite your concerns, hopes, or comments as we discuss this – please email any of us or leave a note in the postbox outside the south door of the Church. Individual comments will be treated as confidential between us. Thank you, Fr Sebastian

Date for your diary: We are to welcome a guest preacher, and enjoy another procession, on August 15th as we celebrate the feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. More details to follow soon, but for now please keep this date to be at St Stephen’s if possible! Fr Sebastian

CANCELLED South Cheltenham Team PICNIC
Sadly the team picnic that was to take place on Sunday 1st August has been cancelled.

It will be there for,up to, 4 weeks while the work is being done.
