St Stephen - Our Patron

​St Stephen was one of the early leaders of the Christian Church. He has the distinction of being both the first deacon and the first martyr.

Well-educated and fluent in Greek, St Stephen preached the gospel to those who were ultimately responsible for his trial and death by stoning.Mural_St Stephen.jpg

At his trial, St Stephen spoke of the beliefs with which he is associated today:

  • The positive powerful influence one’s own faith can have on others
  • The need to live one’s life according to values that have lasting importance.
