Prayer is vital to all we do as a church and is a central part of Sunday services, Life Groups, all of our events and activities, and any day in the church office. There are also regular times when we gather as a church to pray for St Stephen’s and our community and world.

The Prayer Chapel

The prayer chapel is a space set aside for members of St Stephen’s for prayer 24-7, every day of the week except before and during the services on Sunday.

There are several ways to spend time in this space:

• Book a personal slot

• Book a slot with your Life Group or friends to pray together

• Just turn up and join in one of the set times of prayer listed below
