What a wonderful way in which to celebrate the story of Easter Joy: terrified and amazed! The Drum Rolls and the Jazz ensembles added to the glory of the day. The Choir sung beautifully, en masse and duet, at appropriate moments. The Hallelujah Chorus to...More

Every Friday at lunchtime (1:10 pm to 1:50 pm) there is a free concert in the church (donations are encouraged, but not mandatory). The concerts feature classically trained musicians, most of whom are professional operatic singers or instrumental ensembles. The music was quite amazing. The...More

Was in Sydney on business with the day to myself on Sunday. Came to worship here. Was warmly welcomed. A small but excellent sounding choir, phenomenal acoustics, and a well played pipe organ. The minister's sermon was an interesting twist on a piece of Scripture...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.

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
