Located in historic downtown Oxford, North Carolina, St. Stephen’s is a small but vibrant parish dedicated to living out the Gospel by following the example of Saint Stephen, the church’s first martyr and one of the first twelve deacons.
Each week we gather to celebrate the ancient rite of Holy Eucharist on Sundays, Morning Prayer on Thursdays, and Centering Prayer on Wednesday evenings. We are committed to contemplative prayer practices, creation care, and service to our community.
The people at St. Stephen’s want to know and help our neighbors and the parish partners with a number of local agencies, such as Area Congregations in Ministry, the Boys and Girls Club, Murdoch Developmental Center, and Hope House.
Through these ongoing worship and service activities, we try to live out our mission to share “the Gospel and love of Christ Jesus through service to our Church, community, and world.”
