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 (and any 5th) Sunday of the month. On the 2nd Sunday of the month we have an informal ‘All Age’ service and then an informal ‘Morning Praise’ service on the 4th Sunday. We also have a very informal service of praise and worship called ‘The Beacon’ on the first Sunday of the month at 6.30pm.

For our children and young people we run three different groups – Lighthouse (School Years 3-5), Solid Rock (School Years 6-8), and Roots (School Years 9+).

Our united benefice consists of three beautiful churches and are ministered by the Reverend James Russell. St Stephen's and St Leodegar's churches work closely together, while services at St Giles ceased in 2010 due to urgent roof repairs.

Shoe Box Appeal

Hope you all had a lovely summer!
It’s come round quick, I know, but another Shoe Box Appeal is about to start again. I am in need of any items e.g. Toothbrushes, Toothpaste, Soap, Flannels, Pens, Pencils, Colouring Books, Sweets (not Chocolate), Hats, Gloves, Small Toys, and Soft Toys. I am happy to operate from home again at 11 Fletcher Place, North Mundham. You can contact me on 01243 785373 or 07798700587.
It was such a great success last year, so if you have any filled boxes or items then would you kindly leave them on my doorstep if I’m not there. Leaflets and empty shoe boxes can be obtained as St Stephen’s Church, North Mundham or St Leodegar’s Church, Hunston.
Closing date is 5th November as they will be collected the following week.
Many thanks,
Hayley
