Welcome to St. Stephen's Episcopal Church. We strive to recognize and nurture the Christ in ourselves and each person that we encounter along the way. Join us for service on Sunday to experience for yourself the fellowship of Christ.


Our mission as a parish is to open our hearts to God and to share Christ’s unconditional love with the world. We do this by following three pathways:

  • Welcoming: We invite all to join us at every stage in their spiritual journeys.
  • Worshiping: We cultivate a living tradition of liturgy and a life made holy by the sacraments.
  • Working: We share our abundance, we strive for justice, and we accept our calling to protect God’s creation.

Bake Sale Fundraiser For Heifer International

Sunday May 27, 11:30 a.m.

Our Teens & Tweens Sunday School class will be making their famous Pretzels and Fish Crackers (they look like fish, but are crispy, cheesy crackers) to sell at Coffee Hour to riase money for Heifer International.  Other baked goods and fun treats will be offered for sale, too.  When you buy our children's baked goods, you have the power to give a hungry family the resources they need to feed themselves and their children through Heifer International.  If you're watching your diet and don't want to buy any sweets, they'll be happy to take a direct donation.


Hunger Awareness Day

Friday, June 1

Please help St. Stephen's form a team of volunteers to work a shift from 7-9 for this event.  The SLO County Food Bank has over 25 donation sites set up for Hunger Awareness Day where people can donate food and money.  Please let Fr. Ian know if you can volunteer for a shift.  We're also hoping to raise $1,000 here at St. Stephen's to contribute to the SLO County Food Bank.  Make your check payable to "St. Stephen's Parish Council" and write "Food Bank" on the memo line, then put it in the offering plate, bring it to the church office (Mon-Thurs 9-1) or mail it to St. Stephen's Episcopal Church, 1344 Nipomo St, San Luis Obispo, CA 93401
