Not So Strictly St Luke’s 

We will meet again on Sunday 21st April at 2.30 pm. It really doesn’t matter if you can’t dance or don’t have a partner. Just come along and join in with the fun.

St Luke’s Cyclists

On Saturday 1st June we will be cycling around the Isle of Wight. The route will be around 65 miles, and the pace will be easy, stopping for cakes, coffee, lunch and possibly ice-cream, and even (we did last year) a swim in the sea! If you enjoy cycling and can spare the day, come and join us! Please contact Roger Spink for more details.

Hedge End Food Bank

The following non-perishable items are urgently needed: cereal, coffee, crisps, hot chocolate, pasta sauce, squash, tea, tinned meat, tinned meat meals e.g. stew/hot dogs etc, and toilet rolls and UHT milk. The food bank is running low on crackers, soup, tinned carrots, tinned creamed rice and tinned potatoes. All donations of these or any other non-perishable items will be gratefully received, and they may be placed in the box underneath the stairs in the entrance area of the church. Thank you.

Annual Meeting

Our annual meetings will be held during the service on Sunday 12th May. During this time, we will elect Churchwardens. We also have two vacancies on PCC for Lay Representatives (three-year term) and one vacancy for a Deanery Synod Representative (two-year term). Nomination forms will be available from 28th April and must be completed and received in the Church Office by 10th May at the latest. If you are interested in serving as a PCC Lay Representative or a Deanery Synod Representative, please speak to Ben in the first instance. Thank you.

St Luke’s 30th Anniversary

As the anniversary in October approaches, a small booklet is being produced to commemorate 30 years of the time of the church, and we want your memories! There will be a brief history of the founding of the church but most important is the sharing of memories, the part the church has played in people’s lives and what it has meant to people. Could you write a small piece to share your memories of St Luke’s with others? This could be brief or detailed, and could include your memories of church events, outings, weekends away, socials, life events such as baptisms and weddings, or other occasions. It could also be about how St Luke’s has encouraged your faith and been a key part of your life. It could indeed be about where we are now and hopes for the future. We would love to hear from everyone, including those who were here at the beginning and those who have joined more recently – please be assured that all memories are valuable and will be respected. We would also love to be able to share photos of church life past and present. If you have anything you’d like to share, please speak to Janet or Ben.

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.
