St Stephen’s on the Cliffs is a vibrant and joyful parish and a flagship of Anglo-Catholic life in Lancashire with a strong history of ministry to Blackpool and especially to its theatre community. Its worship is of a high standard – colourful, traditional and rich but also confidently Anglican. The congregation is diverse in every way and young people play an important part in its life. The Parish ministers generously to its local community but also draws in people from across the Fylde coast who seek excellence in the Catholic tradition.
The Parish plays a full part in the life of the Deanery and Diocese and is committed to growth in line with Vision 2026.
St Stephen’s is a Parish of the Society of St Wilfrid and St Hilda and the PCC has passed resolutions under the House of Bishop’s Declaration. Pastoral and sacramental care is therefore delegated to the Bishop of Burnley.
