Worship Every Sunday @ 10 am

We are worshipping in person, with masks optional. You can also find us on Facebook at 10 am for a live broadcast of our Sunday worship and at 9 pm every day for recorded Compline (bedtime prayer).

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.

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 come for worship some Sunday or for one of our programs described below. You are welcome, 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, trans or cis, 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. If you're curious about what worship is like in an Episcopal Church, you can find out more 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.  Our building is completely wheelchair accessible.  All of our restrooms are gender inclusive.

What's Happening?

Spirit filled, Biblically based preaching! Every Sunday, we hear a reading from the Hebrew Scriptures, a Psalm, a passage from the letters, and some Good News (the Gospel). Our preaching centers on what God is saying through these ancient texts to us today. Every week, you'll hear a word that you can use. Come and see (and hear!)

Healing church trauma. If you have experienced this, please know that it's not your fault and it's not God's will. Hurt people hurt people, even in churches. The truth is, God is love. Period. We are committed to being a radically inclusive community where you can be who you are, secure in the knowledge that God loves you. 

Fourth Tuesday Dinner Get Togethers in the Parish Hall at 6 pm. The church will provide a main dish (vegetarian and meat). If you can, bring a side or dessert to share. If you want to come but can’t bring anything, that is OK! There will be plenty. We'll also play games like dominoes, dice, and euchre! 

Feeding people every single day. We have a Blessings Box outdoors, so food is available 24/7! Take what you need, or leave non-perishable items for others. Our indoor food pantry hours are Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday 10 am - 3 pm. If you live Downriver and need help with food or anything else, contact our office at 734-284-8777 

Special Events

We're hiring!

We're looking for a Director of Family Ministries! This person will work with the Rector to develop and manage a family ministry program. We view family ministry as a way to increase engagement of families (not necessarily on Sunday mornings) and to provide opportunities for families who are looking for progressive values to grow in their Christian faith. We plan to re-envision family ministry from the ground up, with the potential for everything from family events (fun and service-oriented), different worship times and styles, a summer service camp, at home materials for families to use to worship and learn together – and more! We are truly open to new ideas.

The person we’re seeking will be able to develop connections within the congregation and the community. They will be able to plan and implement events, help with publicity, manage volunteers, and engage in professional development to bring new ideas back to the congregation. A passion for connecting people with each other and with God is essential. We want to offer strong, engaging formation programs rooted in an understanding that living out God’s love means fully including and supporting LGBTQ people, helping improve food security in our neighborhood, working for peace through justice, and being committed to racial reconciliation.

The full position description, including how to apply, can be found here. Questions can be sent to St. Stephen’s Rector, Andrea Morrow.

St. Stephen's welcomes everyone. We embrace ancient traditions and progressive values. Come and see!
