We are beginning to have in-person in-church worship by reservation on Sundays. 

For information on Weekly Worship opportunities, follow this link.

In addition:

At St. Stephen’s, we will celebrate Morning Prayer throughout the week and we offer several other online Faith Formation opportunities:

  • Morning Prayer with the Rev. Alan Neale
    Alan Neale will be saying Morning Prayer Monday-Thursday at 9:15 a.m. via Zoom (please contact Alan Neale for the Zoom link). If you can, please have a Bible and/or Prayer Book with you.
  • Book Group —Our book group resumes  Wednesday, April 14. We meet via Zoom on Wednesday evenings from 6:30-7:30 pm. We are reading The Color of Compromise: The Truth about the American Church’s Complicity in Racism by Jemar Tisby. It details how the American church has actively and passively perpetuated racism and suggests ways to foster a more equitable and inclusive environment among God’s people. If you are interested in participating in conversations on racial justice and faith, I invite you to join us. To join, simply sign up here.  Have questions? Please contact: Xena Markine-Morrison, Director of Christian Formation, at xmorrison@ststephenschurch.com
  • Adult Formation Class using The Wired Word (Contact Alan Neale)
  • Tuesday Men’s Morning Prayer — The Tuesday Morning Men’s Prayer group has returned to a hybrid format with some of us meeting at the Church on Tuesday mornings at 8:00 a.m. and some of us staying virtual on Zoom to share Morning Prayer. Those of us at the church are following the distancing and masked rules. Our group includes Buzz Baker in Arkansas and Jim Smith in Washington. If you would like to join us Bob Cagle.
  • Thursday Bible Study Class (Contact Xena Morrison)
  • Virtual Get-Togethers for Youth (Contact Xena Morrison)

St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church has worshipped on the corner of North James and Mulberry Streets in Goldsboro since 1857—in the same building!  We would love to show you our historic building, but more than that, we’d love to have you worship with us.

Our Sunday services of Holy Eucharist (sometimes called Holy Communion, the Mass, or the Lord’s Supper) are at 8:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. All, including children, are welcome.  We also celebrate the Eucharist and offer anointing and prayers for healing at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesdays.  Christian formation (Sunday School) for all ages is offered at 9:30 a.m. between September and June. We hope to see you soon!

In the search for our new rector, our first task was to write the Search Collect, our parish prayer which will be a part of our liturgy for the duration of the search. Here is the Collect:

Almighty God, who knows our hearts and minds. You have blessed our Church with generations of faithful servant leaders. Guide our Search Committee, Vestry and Parish Family as we call for our new Rector. Grace us with patience, trust, and hope through this time of discovery. We pray that we may call a faithful Rector who will guide us in our spiritual journey. Through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.

All things . . . that you want men to do to you, you also must do to them.

Matthew 7:12

But the meek will possess the earth, and they will find exquisite delight in the abundance of peace.

Psalms 37:11

At that time the lame will leap like the deer,+
And the tongue of the speechless will shout for joy.

Isaiah 35:6
