St Stephen's Church, Gloucester Road is a Grade II* listed Anglican church in South Kensington, London, England. The church was built in 1866-67, and the architect was Joseph Peacock.[1]

As a traditional Anglo-Catholic parish, rejecting the ordination of women to the priesthood and as bishops, it receives alternative episcopal oversight from the Bishop of Fulham (currently Jonathan Baker). The parish is a member of Forward in Faith.[2]

The poet T. S. Eliot served as a churchwarden at St Stephen's; between 1933 and 1940 he lived in the church's presbytery on Grenville Place.
