ST LUKE'S WALKERS
For anyone who is interested in some good wholesome exercise in good company, we have put together a programme of walks. Generally taking place on the 1st and 3rd Thursday mornings of each month at 10am, the walks are around 5-7 miles long and are located in the local area around Southampton, the New Forest, Winchester, Meon Valley and Portsmouth Harbour.
The walks are regularly attended by over a dozen people. You don’t need to be a member of the congregation at St Luke’s to join in.
Check the notice boards for details of the next walks planned.
If you would like to get in touch, please contact the following people:
Janet Compton, Rosie Adams and Chris Duff. If you do not have their details, please use the contact form to get in touch with the Leadership Team.
Do you want to attend some inspirational and thought-provoking talks and activities?
Join our group of women at church at 7:15pm for tea and coffee followed by the talk and discussion. Please see the calendar for the date of our next meeting.
We have had: a guest GP speak on mental health, older persons’ luncheon groups, testimonies, quizzes, and a Christmas meal.
The music is wonderful, the steps quite easy and you do not need a partner. It is open to any age or gender. The origins of the dance are explained and the meaning of the Hebrew songs are explained. It is an evening of worship, fun, fellowship and great exercise.
It takes place in the main worship area of St Luke’s church.
Please consult the calendar for the date of the next dance.
Becoming part of a small group is a great way to explore faith in a friendly, prayerful and more intimate setting. Small groups provide fellowship, teaching and pastoral care. Each small group leader chooses material that is best suited to their group. We also offer short-term, specific courses from time to time.
If you are interested and want to know more, please submit an enquiry via the contact form to the small groups team.

SUNDAY MORNING CHILDREN'S GROUP
In most Sunday services, there is a Children’s Group where the stories in the Bible are brought to life with imagination, fun and creativity.
We aim to give children an understanding of Jesus and to help them develop their own personal relationship with God. Children also play an active part in the all-age service (“All In Worship”) each month.
OPEN THE BOOK
School is a great place to learn about the Christian faith.
Our Open the Book team put on school assembly dramas at two primary schools in the Parish bimonthly. We use the storyteller Bible Society Open the Book programme to act out Bible stories, complete with costumes and props. We encourage the children to participate.
