St Stephens Chapel overlooks Judges Bay and was one of the first Gothic Revival churches commissioned by Bishop Selwyn. Again designed by Frederick Thatcher, it features the same characteristic board and batten exterior walls, shingle roof and exposed internal truss work as does Bishopcourt. The chapel was built in 1857 and has a Greek Cross plan. It was originally built for the signing of the Constitution of the United Church of England and Ireland in New Zealand.
