All Are Welcome - Always!
Worship Every Sunday @ 10 am

About Us
Welcome to St. Stephen's Episcopal Church. If you're looking for a church home where you can experience God in worship, make new friends, and help the community, we invite you to explore this site and, if you choose, to join us some Sunday. We welcome you whether you are new to faith or have been in church all your life, full of doubt or firm in your faith, young or old, rich or poor, LGBTQ or straight, full of joy or consumed by sorrow. Whoever you are and wherever you are on your journey, you are welcome here. You can read more about what we believe and who we are here. A quick note for people with allergies or asthma - we don't use incense, and our candles are oil-filled, which produces less smoke.

We're dedicated to being a positive part of the community. If you live Downriver and need help, contact our office at 734-284-8777. We have a clothing closet and food pantry, and we can occasionally assist with other needs or refer you to agencies that have more resources. You don't need to be part of the congregation. Jesus's acts of compassion, mercy, feeding, and healing were for everyone, and so is our help. We're a small church with limited resources, but we share what we have with those in need.

Our address is 2803 First Street, Wyandotte, MI 48192 (corner of First and Chestnut).  There is some parking in front of the church on First Street, and there is a municipal parking lot just across Chestnut Street from the church. We offer wheelchair accessible entry, seating, and restrooms.  Our downstairs restrooms are gender inclusive.

We are proud to be part of the Wyandotte community. We've been here for over 150 years! If you're new to the area or just want to know more about the city, you can find more information here.

What's happening?

March 10 is the first Sunday of Lent, which lasts until Easter, on April 21. Come, join us as we walk through the wilderness with Christ

Our Lenten series this year will be Transforming Questions, a curriculum developed by the Episcopal Church that includes prayer, a shared meal, scripture, and discussion. We’ll meet on Wednesdays from 12-2 pm, beginning March 13. Dates are March 13, March 20, March 27, April 3, and April 10. Each participant will get a small book, which costs $8; please let Pastor Andrea know if cost is a barrier, and we can arrange for a free copy. We will also share responsibility on a rotating basis for a simple meal of soup, salad, and bread. Transforming Questions offers the opportunity to engage in faithful questioning with the companionship of a leader and in the midst of a community. Together we’ll wrestle with some of the most pressing questions of our faith: Who is Jesus? Does God answer prayer? Why do bad things happen? In the act of asking questions, we see our faith transform, deepening and developing into something complicated and rich. 

Sunday School is here! We’ve got a great group of leaders and a curriculum focused on God’s love for everyone. We have Sunday School every Sunday during the 10 am service, except for the last Sunday of each month, which is Youth Sunday in church. Kids will rejoin the main service at the peace, so that they can participate in Communion. All ages from about 3-11 are welcome.We are committed to having Sunday School available every week, even if only one child shows up. Click here to meet the teachers!

Each week, we ask people bring a specific item to church to help keep our food pantry stocked. You can always bring any non-perishable item, but bringing the item of the week helps keep items in stock that are popular with our guests. For next Sunday, the item is a can of hearty soup or stew (preferably with a pop-top).

Sharing our building with groups in the community allows us to support those who are marginalized and transform lives. Our Baptismal Covenant calls us to see and serve Christ in all people, and one way we do that is through making our facilities available to those who need them. We're excited to be hosting so many different community activities! Check out the calendar for meeting times/dates.
