Welcome to St Stephen’s Church


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.

Board Games & Social Afternoon

We do hope that you can join us for an afternoon of board games, drinks and cakes on Sunday 9th February from 2.30pm to 4.30pm in Hunston Village Hall. Why not bring your favourite game and share it with us? Whether you are a Scrabble enthusiast, a Banagram fan, a Jenga tower builder or like to complete a Jigsaw, we are sure there will be something that will appeal to you and hopefully there will be time to try your hand at several games in the time available. There is no need to let us know that you will coming. Just turn up – it will be great to see you.

Prayer Hub : Relaunching our churches’ prayer link

St Stephen’s Church and St Leodegar’s Church, as a Benefice, would like to reinstate a prayer support ministry in our churches. We believe in the power of prayer and want to be able to pray for one another.

If you have a prayer request and would like people to intercede for you, please contact me so that I can initiate the prayer hub. To ensure accuracy in passing on your prayer requests, it is preferable that concise requests are submitted in writing (email and text messages will be acceptable). If you are submitting a request on behalf of someone else, please ensure that you have their permission to do so. First names or initials can be used for sensitive issues. If you have asked for prayer, when appropriate, please send updates so we can keep praying specifically or give thanks when prayers are answered.

Prayer requests will be treated confidentially. Only the intercessors on the prayer hub will know about needs and will never discuss it with anyone. The church leadership team is part of the group. You don’t have to be part of our churches to submit a prayer request.

We are also looking for more people to join our prayer chain as intercessors (people who pray). If you are interested in becoming an intercessor, please contact me,
