Giving your time and skill

Heather helping out

You could get involved in many, many aspects of church life – all are vital!

St Stephen’s is a Christian community made up of families and individuals from all walks of life. Our corporate life and Christian witness together is only possible through the active generosity of people in sharing their time, skill and resources. God gives us all a role in Christian ministry.
