The Canteen Group prides itself as an anchor group, having supported parishioners of the Church of St Stephen through the historical times of this church, while seeking to continue bringing happiness and spiritual bonding to the people they engage with, with warm welcome.
The Canteen Group consists mainly of 5 teams of families, or groups of volunteers, which are highly committed to the activities that strive to support the Church, through fundsraising by the food they prepare for sale on each Sunday morning.
The activities of each Sunday’s event promote community bonding through the fellowship and social interactions at these breakfast gatherings.
The teams are called upon to actively draw visitors and nonministry parishioners closer to our parish. These individual visitors or families are not only encouraged to re-visit us, but also to grow closer to Christ, hopefully through our pastoral interactions of care and welcoming efforts.
Through the years, our pastoral efforts have had many good encounters with people who join our canteen groups and eventually gone on to assist other ministries as well. These are truly joyous moments for us all through Christ’s graces!
To bring Jesus to parish visitors and assist non-ministry parishioners to be welcomed into the various ministries within the church.
