Church History

It was founded in 1870.

St. Stephens School was built in 1870 and services were held there until the church was built in 1884.

In August 1870 St. Stephen's School was opened on Belbeck Street. The building was licensed by the Bishop of Manchester for Divine Service and Sunday School. Services were conducted by the Assistant Curate of Elton, the Reverend R. P. Linfield, and on the 1st January 1873 he started St. Stephen's Mission. A small stone font was presented to the school by Mr. Edward Robinson of Elton and the first baptism took place on 10th October 1874.
