Welcome to St. Stephen’s!

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.

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
