One Church (body) with many parts

The Church is the people not the buildings and St Luke's is a congregation of people from varied walks of life with Jesus in common. Collectively, our identity is found in Christ and we are shaped through prayer, worship, studying the bible and in fellowship together. We are all quite different but these differences make up the full beautiful body of the Church here.

The Church building

St Lukes Church was built and consecrated in 1960, but the congregation had been meeting for worship at the existing hall some 35 years prior to this. Features of the original Church can still be seen as it forms part of our community centre today including detailed brickwork and a stained glass window in what is now our dance studio!

Externally the Church building has a very noticable green-blue copper roof and wide arching windows. When you come inside you will see an exceptionally large space which is a peaceful sanctuary from the busy world.

Artist Mary Filer created the north and south crystopal windows which depict scenes from the gospel of St Luke. Viewing the detail in some quiet reflection takes a little bit of time but it is certainly worthwhile. Mary Filer also created the painted ceiling above the main altar at the east of the Church. The Church has many more features, statues and an organ which are designed to  help enrich beautiful God centred worship and prayer.

We are an open door Church, someone is always in or around the grounds but if you would like to meet someone when you visit please do let us know in advance so that we can be there to meet you.
