St Stephen has been since 1974 a civil parish in the City of St Albans District in Hertfordshire, England. It is located approximately 17 miles (27 km) north-northwest of central London, straddling the M25 motorway and immediately adjacent to the southern boundary of St Albans. St Stephen is a partly urbanised parish with multiple centres of activity and open land that forms part of the Metropolitan Green Belt. The local council is St Stephen Parish Council. The parish covers the settlements of Bricket Wood, Chiswell Green, Frogmore, How Wood and Park Street. It is an ancient parish, and the more urban sections of it were transferred to St Albans progressively up to 1935. At the 2011 census it had a population of 13,865.

Part of the parish was within the Municipal Borough of St Albans from 1835 until 1894 when the part within the borough was transferred to the parish of St Albans. The remainder became part of St Albans Rural District in 1894 and the St Stephen Parish Council was then created.
