Welcome to St. Stephen's Episcopal Church, "the little church with the big heart." We are located on Pittsfield's historic Main Street, adjacent to Dustin Park. For driving directions, click here.
Our Sunday worship time is 9:30 a.m.. All are welcome, without exception.
We believe that all we are and all we have are gifts from God, and we are thankful. It is our mission to share the love of God with each other and with the rest of the world.
We update regularly, so "refresh" this page and our weekly bulletin for content added since your last visit!
