St. Stephen’s Church

St. Stephen’s Church

Located on Court Road in Negombo, the church was declared an Archaeological Monument in 2011. The idea of ​​building this church to fill the gap left by the loss of a church for Anglican Christians was devised by several Welshmen. At the request of the British government at the time, they acquired a suitable piece of land and the government provided a grant for the construction of the church. Construction is said to have begun in 1877 on a 17-perch plot of land in Rudd 2. In 1880 the church was opened for religious purposes.
