Visitors are warmly welcomed at all services. We have more traditional as well as more informal worship, but believe you can encounter the presence of God whichever service you attend. The 8am service is the old service from the Book of Common Prayer with a short homile. There are no hymns during this service.
The church doors are always open through daylight hours - when you can come and visit, enjoy looking around or come and absorb the stillness and quietness of this sacred space. During the week you may be treated to one of our four organists playing the organ.
St Luke's is a warm, welcoming church family.
Refreshments are served after the 9.45am service and it is a great time to fellowship, share news, share items for prayer,
talk about the sermon, spread a little joy and happiness or spread some compassion with a listening ear.
Wednesdays, 9.45am - Morning Communion Service.
This is a more informal service when a few folk meet and share faith and fellowship together. The theme depends on the season of the church and the news in the village and in the country. Requests for prayer are taken and we pray for individuals and situations. There is a time of reflection and space. Often people leaving feeling refreshed and empowered for the rest of the week.
