spiritual formation
and small groups


Every Sunday (with the occasional exception), we gather at 9:15am in the church auditorium for our Sunday morning discussion series.


St. Stephen’s has two choirs. The 10:30 service choir rehearses every Thursday evening from 7:30-9:30 in the parish hall, plus Sunday mornings at 9:30am in preparation for the 10:30 service. Its repertoire is broad, including chant and other early church music, gospel, and modern. The Misa Alegria choir rehearses Monday evenings.

Young Adults of St. Stephen & the Incarnation (YASSI)

YASSI members have brunch after the 10:30am service a few times per month and join together for evening activities from time to time. To find out more, join the Young Adults

Meditation Group

Meets the third Wednesday of the month at 7pm. More information to come.

Loaves and Fishes

St. Stephen’s hot meal program, which serves anyone in need Saturdays, Sundays, Christmas Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Monday holidays, seeks volunteers to help prepare and serve meals and to help with administrative functions such as fundraising, publishing newsletters, scheduling, and serving on the board.

Faith Matters

Faith Matters is our Wednesday evening opportunity for faith growth. We start at 7:30 and end by 9pm. Faith Matters takes place over eight weeks in the fall and in the spring.

Aging Loved Ones Support Group

A group of parishioners meet monthly the third Wednesday of each month to share a meal and to talk about issues related to caring for aging loved ones–a safe place to talk about things that most people who don’t have aging loved ones want to hear about. For more information, email the church office.

Out in Christ

Out in Christ provides a welcoming environment for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender Christians and their supporters and friends to explore their place in the Church, enrich their spiritual lives and minister to one another and the larger community. To find out more, join the Out In Christ mailing list.

Since the 1960s, St. Stephen and the Incarnation Episcopal Church has been a center for progressive thought and action in Washington, especially in the Columbia Heights and Mt. Pleasant neighborhoods, as well as in the Episcopal Church and in the larger society.


We invite you to become a part of our community as we strive to serve God and follow the leading of the Holy Spirit.
