Classical Christianity Engaging the World
There are so many words that you could use to describe St. Stephen's; a family of believers, a cozy church in Fillmore, a house of prayer and devotion, are but a few. But of all of the ways to describe St. Stephen's, one is heard over and over again - "I'm home".
We are now holding in person Sunday Holy Communion Services at 10:00 a.m. (Meeting Ventura County COVID-19 Guidelines.
For those attending in person, masks and physical distancing will be required.
The service will also be available on Zoom
If you participate in the Communion via Zoom, and desire to receive the Holy Sacraments, please use the following prayer when receiving Communion:
Prayer: O Lord Jesus Christ, who has left unto us a Memorial of Thy Passion; I believe that You are truly present in the Most Holy Sacrament. Loving You, above all things, I pray that I may evermore dwell in you and you in me. Though hindered by time and circumstance I pray that you will enter spiritually into my heart. And may I ever perceive within myself the Fruit of Thy redemption and never be lost to You.
I encourage you to say the Office for Daily Morning Prayer and/or Evening Prayer, Forms for Family Prayer and the Form for Spiritual Communion, as well as Prep your Home for Prayer, Create a Prayer Space, Schedule a regular time for your family to gather for Prayer, Stream a live service or a Bible Study.
I pray God’s Healing Presence, Strength, Comfort and Peace be upon each of you.

SERVING FILLMORE AND THE SURROUNDING COMMUNITIES
We are a new small but growing church that is family focused. Our mission is to help ourselves and others develop a walk of faith with Jesus Christ. With the help of our tireless clergy, we are spreading the Gospel one person at a time.
Holy Communion is at 10:00 AM each Sunday. We invite you to join us for worship via Zoom if you cannot attend in person. Please contact us for the link by using the form provided on the Contact page of this website.
Our worship services utilize the 1928 Book of Common Prayer which draws on the timeless Anglican Church (Episcopal) structure of prayer, preaching, Word, and Sacrament.
YOU ARE INVITED!
We invite you to join us for worship services each Sunday, to stay for coffee and conversation following.
Our services are classic Anglican, much like you might have seen in the Episcopal Church prior to the 1970's. They are easy to follow and provide a much needed structure in a chaotic world.
