Church Building

We believe that the format of the Sunday Service, namely, Praise and Worship, followed by the Holy Eucharist is an important contributing factor to the growth experienced at St. Stephen's. The members of St. Stephen's have opportunities to be involved in Community Outreach Programs such as Dove's Nest - a safe house for abandoned children, etc. A general theme running through the Parish is one of caring and loving.

Membership to St Stephen's is not automatic, potential new members are invited to a meal where the ethos of the church is explained and what would be expected of a member of St. Stephen's. These people then have an opportunity to think about this before they commit themselves as a member at the Sunday service.
