New Youth Ministry Coordinator!

We’re delighted to welcome Maddie to St Luke’s as our new Youth Ministry Coordinator!

She’s excited to work with the youth and enable growth in this area and brings a host of skills and enthusiasm to the role.

Volunteers Wanted

Would you like to help in the church but not sure where? Do you like having fun and sharing your faith? If so, joining the Children’s Church team could be the role for you. We are looking for more volunteers to help and run the Sunday morning Children’s Church. You don’t need to know the Bible or have all the answers, just like being around children, sharing the Good News of God and having fun. If you’d like more information about what it would involve, please speak to Nicki or Juliette.

Christian Aid Christmas appeal

This year’s appeal is focussing on supporting young women in Bangladesh to carve their own path out of poverty. As usual, I’ll be selling small Christmas cakes to raise money for the appeal. The suggested price for a cake is £15, and all the money will go to Christian Aid. I’ll be bringing them into church to sell on Sunday 17th December after the service, but if you’d like to order one in advance, please let Siân know.

About us

We are a contemporary, caring, diverse and Christ centred church, drawn together by our desire to know and follow Jesus. We seek to provide a safe place where all people can find faith, friendship, support and direction, and where we can be inspired to be a blessing in our families, neighbourhoods and networks.

We believe the role of a church is threefold: to worship God, to build community and to equip people to live Kingdom lives which point others towards God. In shorthand, we might describe this as ‘up, in and out’.

Firstly, we are built to worship God. In the words of the Westminster Shorter Catechism, our ‘chief end is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever’. (Up) At St. Luke’s, we enjoy worshipping God! Our services are fun, engaging and relevant. Our musical style is predominantly contemporary, with band-led worship, and our preaching style is informal, seeking to explore what the bible says and to interpret and apply it within our 21st century context.

Secondly, we are built to live in community. As 1 Corinthians 12 puts it, we are one body with many parts, and it’s only as we engage with, value and nurture one another that we can truly achieve our potential. (In) We have a variety of small groups, services and events which seek to build our community. Our home, youth and children’s groups aim to deepen discipleship in a safe environment, and our social groups (walking, table-tennis, dancing, book group etc) enable us to get to know one another, encourage one another and have fun with one another whilst doing things we love.

Thirdly, we are called to be those who follow Jesus, seeking to live as he lived: serving the needy, including the outsider, standing up to oppression, speaking out against injustice, loving our neighbour and, by words and action, pointing people towards God. (Out) At St. Luke’s, we believe that we are just as much ‘church’ when we are dispersed as when we are gathered. We seek to encourage all our members to live lives which bless others and point to God. We also run outward-looking events, such as our youth café, coffee drop-in and toddler group, and are involved with other charities and organisations, such as foodbank, Eco Church, Fledge, Simon Says and Christian Aid.
