St. Stephen's has been part of the east Wichita community since 1965.
St. Stephen's is a relatively small, dynamic parish located in the midst of a residential neighborhood. Our building serves the community not only as a great place to worship, but as a resource center for community activities and events. Several community groups meet daily, weekly or monthly at our facility. Neighborhood children play in our play area and our spacious grounds are visited daily by many four legged friends and their walkers!
Groundbreaking for the church building was on June 21, 1964 and was completed in 1965. The building's design was inspired by the idea of an upside-down ark. The building has been updated fulfilling the needs of the congregation. With a successful fund drive in 2000, St. Stephen's eliminated the church mortgage and other debts and started an endowment fund permitting the church to become mortgage free and it has maintained a strong financial condition ever since.
St. Stephen's is part of the church that has grown since the time of Jesus Christ
We are an Eucharistic community of the Diocese of Kansas, which is part of The Episcopal Church and The Anglican Communion. We are Christians, gathered around the font and the altar to worship, to study, to learn, to pray, and to serve. Come and join us. We would enjoy meeting you.
