Welcome to St. Stephen's!
If you have been doing some spiritual soul searching, you’ve found a place where you can wonder with others.
If you have been searching specifically for an Episcopal church, we have a century of history in the heart of Seattle’s Laurelhurst neighborhood.
If you’re anywhere in between, you’ve come to a place where you can spiritually search, find ways to serve in community, and celebrate where God is in your life.
We invite you to explore our website to get to know us a little bit. Better yet, come visit to connect with one of our community ministries and experience for yourself what life following Jesus is like on our corner of NE 45th Street and 48th Ave. NE!
We look forward to meeting you and discovering God’s work in this world together.

Lenten Reading 3: Annas’ Quandary
Out of a twisted heart comes a dark clarity and a last resort: listen to Jesus.
Lenten Reading 2: Entering Jerusalem
A “donkey for the day” stirs Annas’ imagination, but he determines to bide his time.
Lenten Reading 1: Gathering the Threads
Annas sits in his palace mulling over reports, thinking through scenarios and gauging the tempo of Jerusalem.
There are serious unanswered questions about that week in Jerusalem that ended with the crucifixion of Jesus of Nazareth.
