St Stephen’s is a church family meeting in the heart of Elton, Bury.

 

Introducing our minister

Rev. Paul Sanderson – Assistant Priest   (seconded to St Stephen’s from United Benefice of Walmersley Road)

After serving as a Reader for 20 years I was ordained as a local minister in 2005.

I am a local lad having been born in Radcliffe and living in Rochdale and Bury. I am married to Diane, have one daughter Eleanor and a deaf Jack Russell called Dodger. I retired from a career as a science teacher in secondary, further education and sixth form in 2014

Apart from serving God my passion is walking and if I’m not in the Lake District or walking a long distance footpath you will see me out and about in the local area with the dog.    Paul

About St Stephen’s

Our church is liberal catholic in tradition and this is reflected in our worship which involves lots of our church family, many of whom live outside of the parish, in many aspects of our worship. Our church family is made up of young families through to people who have lived in Elton and have worshipped at our church over several decades!

We are connected with our community through our link with our church primary school, and events like our annual pantomime which includes lots of people from our local community, and we also have good and developing relationships with other churches from across the denominational spectrum, sharing in events such as Praise in the Park and working together in mission. St Stephen’s also has a 20 plus strong Mothers Union which meets monthly and is involved in local mission as well as uniformed organisation linked to the scouting movement.

We look forward to you coming along to St Stephens and getting to know us … tea and coffee in our community room after our 9.30am services is a great time to do this.
