    This church may not perhaps compete with the European grandeur of cathedrals but it is a beautiful and rare Catholic Church in India. Classical in its design and structure and you can visit it after exploring Connaught Place.

    Visited on a sunday and it was heaving outside on the well kept lawns and garden with sequential attenders - as services are held throughout the am in Hindi, Tamil, English ....Relaxed atmosphere. Praise group of young adults and they led some of service. Yes it is somewhat round the back of the rashtrapati bhavan- so prepare for a long walk around or get in + possible rampant monkey troups or get a richshaw who knows where it is!! as the security means you have to walk around the govt. buildlings to access it. There are loos in the adjacent building if open people will politely let you use. Benches to sit in grounds + Colgate squirrels on the trees!

    St Stephen’s Church is part of the Church of North India (CNI) and is one of its oldest churches in Delhi, having been constructed in 1862. This is a really beautiful little church, painted a deep red and built in an Italian Gothic style, on Church Mission Road. To get to the church, turn right from Fatehpuri Masjid, go past Khari Baoli, and continue down the road until you reach the church, on your left. You can’t miss it.

    Visitors are allowed to visit the church, even on weekdays. A guard-cum-caretaker is to be found in the little cabin just inside the main gate, and he unlocked the church for us when we visited here on a weekday morning at about 10 AM.

    Inside, the church is as beautiful and well-maintained as it is on the outside. The pulpit and the baptismal font are old, marble; the plaques commemorating important church dignitaries and members of the congregation are gleaming, brightly polished brass; and the exquisite stained glass ‘rose window’ is one of its kind in Delhi.

    You can leave a donation in the poor box if you wish. Please note that photography is not allowed without the permission, at least, of the caretaker. Also, all footwear must be removed before entering the church.

    The Holy Trinity Church is tucked away just a little beyond Turkman Gate. If you’re facing the front of the gate, take the lane snaking inwards to your right, and just a few metres on, you will see a signboard announcing the Holy Trinity Primary School. Just beyond this is the church itself, and it’s connected to the school—so if you visit on a working day, be prepared to wend your way between uniform-clad children playing in the yard in front of the church, which seems to do double duty as a school playground too!

    Compared to the smells and general lack of hygiene in the lanes outside, the churchyard and the church are a haven: very serene and very beautiful and clean. The church is a small one, made of brown stone and consecrated in 1905. It’s an Anglican church, part of the Church of North India (CNI). Unlike most churches (at least in Delhi), this one requires you to remove your footwear before you enter. Inside, the church is just as stolidly pleasant as it is on the outside: while modern amenities like ceiling fans have been added and the walls have been recently painted, the entire effect is of a very well-maintained old building.

    On the walls are plaques in English/Hindi/Urdu, commemorating former pastors of the church; there is also a large board listing all the people who’ve held the position of pastor in charge since the church was consecrated. If you are visiting when a service is not in progress, do take a look at the lectern facing the pews: it has an interesting carving in front, depicting the four gospel writers—Matthew, Mark, Luke and John—through the use of symbolic animals or other motifs.

    Daily worship is held at 6.30 AM and 6 PM, and Sunday Eucharist is at 8.30 AM in summer and 9 AM in winter.
