Welcome to St. Stephen’s!

We have returned to in-church worship on Sundays at 10:30 a.m. and are very glad to see you back in person! 


Introducing Our New Rector!

We have some very good news to share and are happy to announce that Father David Wyly (pictured, right) has accepted our call to serve as Rector of St. Stephen’s. It is with great excitement that we welcome Father Wyly and his family to St. Stephen’s and to Goldsboro!

As an introduction, Father Wyly has prepared this Youtube video (CLICK HERE TO VIEW) so that you can learn a bit about him and about his family. Attached below is a letter from Father Wyly, as well.

Father Wyly will begin his ministry at St. Stephen’s on September 1, 2021. We extend a very warm welcome to the Wyly Family!

Introducing Our New Organist/Choirmaster

We were pleased to welcome Chris Pharo as our new organist/choirmaster. Chris is a native of Kinston and he has been organist and music director at another Episcopal church since 2014. He is a fine organist and accompanist, and we love what he has accomplished with junior and adult choir formation and community engagement in his previous positions. He will start at St. Stephen’s on September 1. Click here to read more about Chris. 




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 service of Holy Eucharist (sometimes called Holy Communion, the Mass, or the Lord’s Supper) is at 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 (this service is temporarily suspended).  Christian formation (Sunday School) for all ages is offered at 9:30 a.m. between September and June. We hope to see you soon!

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
