The site on which St Stephen’s Church, Kurrajong, is built was the joint gift of Mr Alfred Jones and Mr John Lamrock. “The Australian Churchman”, a newspaper of those early days, in reporting the gift, goes on to say: “A more beautiful spot could not be found in the diocese; in fact, from it’s elevated position this sacred edifice when completed will form quite a conspicuous landmark.” The same report continues: “The site is on the road leading from the North to the South Kurrajong, and as nearly in the centre of the two districts as possible.”
