Sharing Food , Developing Friendship , Deepening Faith
St Stephen’s with St Paul’s Church serves the communities of Hyson Green and Forest Fields in Nottingham. We welcome people from all walks of life and from all corners of the globe.
We are a church where people of different cultures, backgrounds, ages and abilities grow together in faith and community knowing Jesus Christ as Lord. We hold services in Urdu twice a year and our music group plays a variety of hymns and worship songs from a variety of traditions and in various languages. We have five midweek Bible study groups, two of which are in the Persian language of Farsi.
The Church is open every day for prayer and quiet refection (enter through the Vine Community Centre).
Fellowship Groups groups meet in homes fortnightly for bible study and discussion. It is also a time to share, support and pray for each other.

The Parochial Church Council (PCC)
The PCC is responsible for the financial affairs of the church. It also has responsibility for the care and maintenance of the church fabric and its contents, through the churchwardens and other volunteers. The PCC has a voice in the forms of service used by the church and may make representations to the bishop and deanery synod on matters affecting the welfare and pastoral care of the parish. The PCC usually meets six times a year. Copies of the Annual Report and financial statements are available in church. Copies of the minutes are held in the church office.
