Wherever you are on your faith journey,
we invite you to join us here.

Welcome From the Priest

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 a local Episcopal church, we have almost a century of history in the heart of the Laurelhurst community in Seattle. If you are 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.

St. Stephen’s is an intentionally inclusive congregation, welcoming all people and their gifts regardless of gender, race, sexual orientation, education, political views, and economic status. We practice mutual ministry – the gifts of the laity being as important and valued as that of the clergy, working together serving God’s people and creation. We are a community of faith in the Episcopal tradition in the Diocese of Olympia in Western Washington and a part of the world-wide Anglican Communion.

We look forward to the opportunity to come to know you and invite you to explore our website to get to know us a little bit. Better yet, come visit on a Sunday and connect in one of our community ministries, so you can experience for yourself what life following Jesus is like on our corner of 45th Street NE and 48th Avenue!

We look forward to meeting you and discovering God’s work in this world together.
