Community Support for St Stephen's

Today we welcome members of Dorrigo Men’s Shed who have designed and built an aumbry for our church.

Alan  Jarrett, Bruce Booker (pictured) and Steve McGuigan have been the main contributors.

The aumbry is a gift to St Stephen’s by Christine Brayne and will be a memorial to Stuart whom we farewelled this week.

The aumbry has been crafted out of Dorrigo red cedar and is quite beautiful.

An aumbry is a cabinet in which is kept consecrated bread and wine, oils for healing and blessing and some communion vessels.

We are especially grateful to Christine and to Dorrigo Men’s Shed for their  generous contributions.

The aumbrey becomes part of St Stephen’s and will remain here as long as the church.

We warmly welcome Bruce and Alan  as part of our congregation.
