There is parking in the front of the church, in the back and along the streets of Veteran's Way and Village Way. The front door faces Village Way. Our congregation is made up of people of all ages, all walks of life and many different denominations of the Christian faith. We are held together by one thing, our desire to follow Jesus. Our dress code is simple: come as you are!
As you enter the front door of our church, the first thing you will see is a print of Rembrandt's famous painting of The Prodigal Son and a sign underneath saying "Welcome Home". Whether you have spent a lifetime going to church or coming for the very first time, you are welcome at St. Stephen's.
Resuming April 10th we will be moving back to two worship services. The 9am service is a more modern style of worship with a range of musical styles using piano, guitar, drums and vocalists. The 11am service is more traditional with hymns, a choir and organ music. We are looking forward to once again being able to offer one of our core values of "diveristy in worship".
Unfortunately we do not have a children's program at this time but children are always welcome. Activity packs are available and families are welcome to use the library, adjacent to the sanctuary, if you'd rather not stay in the sancutary.
What do I wear?
We have no dress code, please dress comfortably.
I have attended a United Church before. Are they all the same?
No. The United Church has a varied expression of worship. We are particularly focused on establishing and nurturing our relationship with Jesus Christ. Mission is a continuing focus for us.
What about communion?
The question of who is welcome at communion is often asked at our monthly communion services. We believe that all who love Jesus are welcome at the Lord ’s Table.
