Welcome to the St. Stephen's Episcopal Church website. We hope this site will help you learn more about us and our witness for Christ. We strive to recognize and nurture the Christ in ourselves and each person that we encounter along the way. Our church is a thriving community of believers, and lovers of the word of God. St. Stephen's has a long tradition of outreach and service to its members and the community. We hope you will join us for service on Sunday to experience for yourself the fellowship of Christ.
St. Stephen's is Seeking a New Rector
Rev. C. Barry Turner, who served our parish for 17 years, has retired, and we're in the process of searching for a new Rector. Inspired by this search process, we at St. Stephen’s have been encouraged to search within ourselves as a congregation. We have considered all aspects of parish life, looked carefully at various documents, and, finally, examined our own hearts. Spiritual and community engagement, tradition and growth, reason and mission are important to us as a congregation, and it is our hope to engage a rector who is excited by these things and can facilitate our continuing renewal.
SLO Canterbury Foundation Chili Cook-Off & Chicken BBQ

Deanery churches will compete for the coveted "Best Chili" title in this effort to raise money to support our young adults and our new interfaith ministry center, The Shire. Bishop Mary will be with us to help judge the chili contest! Join us for food, faith and fun-raising.
The theme for Vacation Bible Camp this year was "In God's Garden" and among other activities, our campers planted some lovely flowers on the Nipomo side of our church entrance. Be sure to stop and enjoy the flowers!
