Supporting SJE Arts

Love SJE Arts? We would love your support!

SJE Arts is owned and managed by St Stephen’s House, a theological college. Financially, SJE Arts has to be independent, it receives no college funding. Hire of the church to external groups and ticket receipts from our own SJE Arts concert promotions bring income, but we are always grateful for support.

How you can help

  • by giving money towards the maintenance and improvement of the wonderful Grade 1 building.
  • by sponsoring a concert in one of the SJE Arts Series.

Sponsorship gives us the freedom to be adventurous in our programming, allowing us to back emerging talent rather than resorting always to the safety of well-known names.

For more details, please contact Michèle Smith ( or Rachel Makari (
