Church Life

SUNDAYS

We meet to worship together every Sunday at 8am and 10am. Groups for children and young people run every week during the 10am service.

The 8am service is a said Holy Communion using traditional (BCP) format every other week.
The 10am service includes a mix of hymns and modern songs using both the organ and a band. There is an established structure of readings from the Bible, a talk and prayers. The 2nd and 4th Sundays in the month are Communion, whilst the 1st Sunday is our all-age service, Sunday ONE. There are groups during the 10am service for primary and secondary school-aged children, as well as crèche facilities for parents of babies and toddlers.

Whatever your background we can assure you of a very warm welcome.

PRAYER

As a Christian church family we believe in a God who loves to hear us speak to Him, whether giving thanks, asking for forgiveness, or seeking His help. So we seek to root all our church life in prayer.

Our monthly whole church prayer meeting is called CONNECT and takes place on the 1st Tuesday of every month at 7.30pm in St Luke’s Church. We also operate a Prayer Chain for emergency requests and include specific requests within our weekly intercessions.

FAMILIES, YOUTH & CHILDREN

St Luke’s is a church family of all ages from under 1 year old, to approaching 100 years old. We long to see relationships fostered between everybody, in order that we might build each other up and learn about being rooted in Jesus Christ together. As a consequence, we want to see children and young people fully involved in the life of our church family.

Children and young people are involved in our worship every Sunday morning at the 10am. At Sunday ONE on the first Sunday of the month, all ages worship and learn together. Every other week we all gather together for an opening song and prayers, then children and young people have their own groups. Currently, we have 2 groups, one for Reception – Year 6, and a second for Years 7-13. There is always a creche available if our youngest members get restless.

As the number of children and young people in our family grows we are increasing the things we do together outside of Sunday services. One of these is our summer ‘biking@stlukes’ or if you have pre-school children we would love to see you at our toddlers’ group.

St John’s is our local Church of England Primary School and in partnership with Jonathan & Sarah Griffiths of Foursquare Missions, we have recently begun a Sunday afternoon group at the school, from 2-3.15pm, for the children of St John’s. If you are part of the St John’s community why not have a look at the website below to find out more.
