Chapelry History

Liverpool St Stephen Byrom Steet was created in 1792 when a former Baptist Church was acquired. The final service in the old St Stephen's church was held 1 August 1870.

The church moved to a new site in 1870 and was later amalgamated with St Ann Richmond. The church in Byrom Street closed in 1937.

"St. Stephen's church, [erected in 1851] originally built for a congregation of Protestant dissenters, but purchased and fitted up for the Established religion, in the patronage (stood within the boundaries) of...St. Nicholas' and St. Peter's" ancient parish.[1]
