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

  • 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

Ministries of caring

  • Daughters of the King; a ministry of daily prayer for the needs of the both members of St. Stephen’s and others who request prayer.

  • Eucharistic Visitors; a ministry of visitation after church to share communion with anyone who could not join us for worship that Sunday.

  • Lay healing ministry; ministry of the laying on of hands offered each Sunday after communion

  • Connect Link; rides for those who cannot drive to church or to the doctor etc

  • Pastoral Visitation by clergy and lay people

Fellowship and fun

  • Gastromartyrs: a small group evening dinner ministry for adults that promotes fellowship and getting to know others.

  • The Men’s Group gathers for breakfast at 8:30 am on the first Monday of each month at the Village Inn 15200 Iliff Avenue, Aurora.

  • The Women’s Group meets on the third Thursday of the month sometimes at the church for a brown bag lunch and a program, sometimes taking excursions to local points of interest.

  • The Youth Group which meets on the first Sunday of each month after the 9 am service.

  • A broad variety of family-friendly social events and celebrations throughout the year

  • Summer camp for children and youth 4 - 16 years old: two weeks in July which includes Bible stories, music, crafts, games, and a free healthy lunch.

The monthly meeting of the men's group means the guys get together on the first Monday of the month to talk about what's new, what's up and what's for breakfast! Rumor has it, that's the most important meal of the day! Look at those smiles! #breakfastclub #pancakes #mmmbacon
