S. Stephen's Church is an historic Episcopal church located at 114 George Street in the College Hill neighborhood of Providence, Rhode Island. Located in the midst of the Brown University campus, it is an active parish in the Episcopal Diocese of Rhode Island, with a strong Anglo-Catholic identity.

The church building, a large stone Gothic Revival structure, was designed by Richard Upjohn and built in 1860-62.[2] In 1889 the congregation received a major bequest from Henry J. Steere, a prominent philanthropist and industrialist.

The church building was listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places in 1973.[1]
