Since the church exists to serve others, we are actively engaged in reaching out to our community; both through the support of other agencies or by taking our own initiative, there are many opportunities to serve.

St. Stephen’s has built ties with several organizations that provide valuable services within our immediate neighbourhood and the city:

• Parkdale Food Centre
• Forward Avenue Family Shelter
• Alcoholics Anonymous
• Youth Services Bureau
• Ottawa West Community Support

Through our national church we also provide support, both financially and through involvement of members to:

• Presbyterians Sharing
• Presbyterian World Service and Development
• Gracefield Christian Camp and Retreat Centre
• Women’s Missionary Society
