Visited St Stephens for the very first time to see young American folk/country singer Dori Freeman perform as part of Sydney Festival. It was a great match with the unadorned and simple beauty of this very Presbyterian space providing a perfect setting to her recital....More

Music at St. Stephen's is always worth seeing, listening to and participating in: joining in the congregational hymns! Special Hymn Fests take place several times a year and are fabulous. Instrumental involvement - Brass Band; great organ recitals and delightful choral pieces from the Choir....More

To hear good quality music played in this incredible space is fantastic. To be able to sit and take it all in under such a roof, with so much incredible history and beautiful religious foci was a sacred and lovely thing to do...

Tucked away on Macquarie St and easy to simply walk by without spotting. This lovely church has a wealth of history and certainly worth popping in for a few minutes to look around and have some time to reflect on life. Also a great place...More

This is a small but attractive church right in the CBD. Not sure about the opening hours but when I walked past at about 5pm on a weekday recently it didn't seem to be open amd I had to be content with viewing the exterior.

Popped in a few hours before services began and staff were happy for me to sit quietly. It's not a 'must see' church in terms of architecture but it does have a lovely atmosphere. The on-site information is interesting as well as it has moved...More

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
