St Stephen’s is a place in the community for the community — lots happen inside and outside of the church. Below and left are summaries of some of the community groups and places that you might like to come along to.
You can join various groups in the St Stephen’s Centre beneath the main body of the church or hire it out for your own group, gathering or party — details here
