St Stephen's mission is to serve Christ in our neighbourhood. We are seeking to grow local links, as well as being host to community activities. We believe Jesus is Good News for all, offering Forgiveness for the past, New Life for the present, and Hope for the future.
Sunday morning worship, at 10.30am happens in a variety of styles, with occasional Parade and Make4Jesus (Messy Church: all age, with craft and eating activities) services . As part of morning worship, the J-Team meets, with separate groups for children. Typically about 55 to 60 people attend.
Sunday Evening worship, at 6pm, is smaller, with a strong sense of oneness in Christ.
During the week (see below) there is a range of Church groups and activities for all ages!
We welcome enquiries from people/groups wishing to use the building. Please contact the minister.
