St. Stephen’s Welcomes You!
St Stephen’s Episcopal Church is a worshiping, learning, serving a community of all ages. We have been part of life in Lamorinda since our founding in 1950. (There’s a reason we are located on St Stephen’s Drive — we were the first residents of the neighborhood!) We invite you to join us in our mission to Know, to Love, and to Serve Christ
We are a community of communities, and our common participation in the life of the community is what binds us together, whether through service opportunities, community gatherings, volunteering for the church or preschool, or simply finding a reason to hang out together.
Through worship; regular opportunities to study, learn, and serve; and plenty of just getting together with neighbors and friends, we grow in faith and encourage one another in our commitment to Christian community. There’s more to Church than Sunday, and more to community than sharing a zip code. Get connected! Join us!

Membership in the Church includes an expectation to contribute financially to the three primary areas of finance:
- Our annual operating budget
- Outreach ministry (service to the needs of the world)
- Capital expenses (support for buildings and grounds) We take as our guide in these affairs the words of Scripture and the example of tradition which encourage us to remember that the Church is like a body and needs to be cared for.
Together we make our best effort to keep our own house in order (including careful management of our finances), in order to be able to fulfill our mission of reconciliation in the world.
