FAQsIf you have any other questions or concerns about taking a first step and exploring what church might look like, be in touch! We’d love to talk with you. Contact
What time are your services?
We have 2 regular Sunday morning services, at 8:30 and 10:30 am with Eucharist. We also have a 5 pm Malayalam Eucharist service. Learn more about our services here.
Do you have Sunday school?
Yes, we have a regular children’s church school during the 10:30 am service. Children usually start church with their family, go up for a children’s talk with the priest (if comfortable), then go downstairs for church school, returning in time for communion. Learn more about opportunities for children here.
Do you have nursery care?
We have a nursery space with activities, toys and a changing table. However, nursery aged children must be accompanied by a responsible adult and not left alone in the nursery.
Do I have to be Anglican?
No. All people are welcome to St. Stephen’s. We are a Christ centred Christian church and welcome people of all ages and stages of faith. We express our worship in an Anglican fashion, which uses a prayer book and liturgy, including eucharist or communion at the Lord’s table.
I am interested in baptism for my child or baby.
Baptism is an important moment in the life of faith, open to all, including babies and children. As an Anglican church, we baptize infants, making promises on their behalf and supporting them as they grow in faith. To be baptised is to be a part of the church and to seek to follow Jesus. If you would like to explore this for yourself or your family, please be in touch. Also see Special Occasions.
Can I rent the building?
As a church, we seek to be good stewards of our church building and make it available to the public when appropriate and possible. We have many groups that use the building. We don’t charge rent, but accept a donation to cover costs, negotiable upon conversation. Be in touch for more information.
Where do I park?
We have parking in the back, off of the alley on Taylor. You can also park on the street around and across from the church. There is an accessible parking section in front of the church on Grosvenor Crescent, also a loading zone for people with special needs.
Can I give a donation online?
We are a church community, and are very grateful for donations and support, which allow us to continue to be a presence in the lives of our church family and beyond. You may make an etransfer to our office if you wish to make an online donation. A receipt will be provided for income tax purposes for donations over $20. The office email is: firstname.lastname@example.org
