St. Stephen's is a modern church. All our services are informal, and we use an overhead projector for all our songs and prayers, for we seek to make our services as friendly as possible for newcomers. We have lots of children and enjoy their contribution. Our evening service is currently small, but is seeking to grow. It is very informal and we use an interactive style of preaching.
We are open to renewal in the Holy Spirit, but are aware not everyone in the church understands this in the same way. As we move forward into the purposes of God and the empowering of the Holy Spirit we seek to do so as a united church.

The building, comprises a modest single storey arrangement of rooms. with a worship area under a low pitched roof, surrounded on three sides by ancillary rooms under a flat roof which include three other assembly areas, in the form of a front room, a side hall and a rear hall, amply served by lobbies, a crèche, offices, a kitchen, toilets and stores. The building has four access/exit points - the main entrance on the south side, a side entrance on the east side and escape doors from the hall and church on the west side.
