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.

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.

The poet T. S. Eliot served as a churchwarden at St Stephen's; between 1933 and 1940 he lived in the church's vicarage, first at 9 Grenville Place (1934-7), then at 11 Emperor's Gate (1937–40).
