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. Our nursery is open on Sundays from 9:15 a.m. until 11:45 a.m. Christian formation (Sunday School) for all ages is offered at 9:00 a.m. between September and June; there are also some midweek opportunities for adults.


Our Rector is Father David Wyly
