Parish Life HOWTOs

Saint Stephen’s has a lot of events: some only require simple planning, others are quite complex. This page is a repository of all the HOWTOs: guides, reminders, templates—all the documentation we can think of to help people put on the event next time. All documents are available in PDF format, but many are available in their original, editable format. This way they can be edited as our processes and procedures adapt and change over time, and also so that others who want to imitate our successes can have a starting point for their own efforts.

Some further sensitive documents are stored here.

Price List The prices have been fairly steady over the years. (The Tea Room price finally went up a couple of years ago.) We recently stopped using tickets as a payment form.
