Maggie Helwig We are an inclusive and affirming Anglican community in the heart of the city, where we strive to live out God’s mission of compassion and justice for all people, and for all of creation.

We are committed to being a community of solidarity with those who have been pushed to the margins of our society, and to the task of building a better world.

We support and engage with the arts — music, literature, theatre, the visual arts — and welcome collaboration with working artists.

We encourage questioning, dialogue, exploration and doubt. We know that the mystery of God is too great for any of us to understand fully, but together, through worship, work and community, we can continue to grow, to learn, and to move deeper into our shared life in God’s love.

Please join us for one of our worship services or community activities! We look forward to meeting you.

The restored Mary Magdalene, Jesus, and St Stephen windows (and the south-facing Dorcas window), blessed by our area bishop, the Rt. Rev. Jenny Andison, on Nov 25 2018.


St Stephen-in-the-Fields is a small Anglican parish in downtown Toronto with a major social justice and arts ministry. Our work takes place in one of the most significant historic buildings in the city, built in 1858, and containing, among other features, strikingly beautiful stained glass windows dating from the late 19th century, and made by the leading stained glass studios in Canada.

We are pleased to announce that Phase I of our conservation programme — the full restoration of the four large windows (see photo above) — is now complete.

As soon as we raise an additional $15,000, we will be able to proceed with the full completion of Phase II (the ground level windows, north and south). We continue to welcome donations, which can be cash or cheque (earmarked for “window restoration”), or on-line through Paypal, Canada Helps, or our GoFundMe. All on-line donation options can be found on our website.

Charitable tax receipts are available for all donations about $10, as long as you send us your name and address.

Same-sex/same-gender marriage: After a process of discernment, we have been approved by the Archbishop as a parish where same-sex/same-gender marriages may now take place, using the trial liturgy developed by the Episcopal Church of the United States. This permission will remain in place until General Synod 2019, at which time the diocesan policy will be reviewed, dependent upon the outcome of the Synod vote on this issue. We also continue to be authorized to offer the blessing of same-sex/same-gender relationships, for instance in those cases where couples are already civilly married.
