Our Shared Life
We are diverse in age, ethnic backgrounds, education, ideas and gifts. We are, like you: God’s children, imperfect and loved always.
Our life together, as the people of St. Stephen's, is centered in the modelling and teachings of Jesus Christ. Through him we have experienced God’s love in our lives. Because God first loved us we seek to love others. Our care for each other is expressed through our worship, fellowship, study, shared joys and struggles as well as ministry to others.
we share our life through:
Worship is for all ages and our building is accessible for all abilities. Hearing assistance is available
Open table: everyone is welcome to join us for communion
