x St. Stephen's Chapel, Stanley

A daughter church of
St. John's Anglican / Episcopal Cathedral
Hong Kong

Welcome to St. Stephen's

St Stephen’s is a beautiful church set in the lovely grounds of St Stephen’s College, Stanley, on the South side of Hong Kong Island.
We are an Anglican / Episcopal Church, a daughter church of St John’s Cathedral, in the diocese of Hong Kong Island, and this is also the school chapel of St Stephen’s College.

Our multi-national congregation includes families, couples and singles, young and
old, and people from many different church backgrounds.

We meet at 9.30am every Sunday to celebrate our service of Holy Communion.
This is our central act of worship that brings us together before God to explore and grow in the Christian faith. You are very welcome to come and join us. We hope
you will find a spiritual home here.

Our Priest-in-charge, the Revd. Will Newman, is part of the clergy team at St John’s Cathedral, as well as being the Anglican Chaplain at Stanley Prison, and School Chaplain for St. Stephen’s College.

A Prayer for St Stephen’s Chapel

God our heavenly Father,
Make the doors of this Chapel wide enough to receive all who need love and fellowship,
And narrow enough to shut out all pride and lack of love;
Here may the sorrowing receive comfort,
The penitent be assured of your mercy,
And may all your children renew their strength and go on their way in hope and joy;
Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
