Welcome to St Stephen's Website

St Stephen's is the parish church of Burnley Wood and Towneley, and is in the Diocese of Blackburn http://www.blackburn.anglican.org.  

It is situated in a beautiful part of Lancashire and has a vibrant history dating back to 1879.

St Stephen's has its own Aided Primary School, which is built on the edge of Towneley Park and Golf Course and looks out across the hills of the South Pennines.
The Church itself is central in tradition and open to renewal, having a variety of services throughout the week, ranging from traditional to informal.
There are many organisations for all age groups, and enquiries are always welcome.
We are a growing and child-friendly church, and are pleased to welcome you to our website, and would love to welcome you to any of our sevices.
