Welcome to St Stephen’s Church

Featured

Welcome and thank you for visiting St Stephen’s Church, North Mundham.  St Stephen’s is part of a strong and vibrant community in the Parish of North Mundham, south of Chichester.  This is a popular church, with a large congregation, attracting people from near and far.

The services during the month offer an opportunity to praise God in different ways.  The Church runs a Sunday School on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of each month.  We welcome children to all our services with a monthly All Age Service.  Children and youth groups meet in the Village Hall for games, singing, activities and Christian teaching.

St Stephen’s and St Leodegar’s churches work closely together as a united benefice and are ministered by Revd. James Russell.

Ivor and Olwyn Young

Many may fondly remember Ivor and Olwyn Young who were members of our congregation some years ago, before Olwyn’s health failed. Olwyn has passed away a few years ago and Ivor passed away on 14 July this year. He had been moved to a residential care home in Ross on Wye in September 2018. Our deepest sympathy to his surviving family.
