History and Architecture:

The first divine worship at Surrey Hills 6 February 1887 took place in a Recreation Hall in Windsor Crescent. These services continued until a wooden church was built in Boundary Road (now Warrigal Road) and opened for use in March 1889.*

The Church was re named St Stephens in 1947 at a naming of the Church ceremony.*

Tenders for a new church were called in September 1909 and that from a Mr Robertson was accepted at a cost of 5,000. The Foundation stone was laid by Reverend McDonald on 2 July 1910.*
