Lay Leadership (Vestry)

The Vestry is the lay (non-staff) governing body of the parish. Working closing with clergy and staff, we take an active roles in caring for parish finances and buildings; and developing strategy and vision for St. Stephen’s. We draw members from across the parish, representing different ages and interests.


The Vestry consists of lay members of the church and is lead by the Senior Warden. In addition, the Vestry officers include the Junior Warden, Treasurer and Clerk. All Vestry members, including the officers, are elected by the congregation at the annual parish meeting each January.
