Pastoral Team - Alongside our vicar Revd Aneal Appadoo and Pearl Smith, our SPA (Southwark Pastoral Auxiliary - licensed pastoral worker), a small team meets on a monthly basis to focus on the current pastoral needs of our church family. We support those in need, especially the elderly, vulnerable and sick through visiting individuals in their homes, hospitals or care homes, making phone calls, praying and shopping or cooking as necessary. We have had links to nearby Margaret Laurie House, an in-patient mental health rehabilitation facility.
Prayer Ministry – after every service, a pair of trained church members will offer prayer ministry in a quiet area of the church, and follow-up is provided if required.
Life Groups - meet fortnightly at the leaders’ homes to study the Bible, share, grow and pray together. Prayer Breakfasts – held either at the church or in a home, these are sometimes divided into Men’s and Women’s events, but always involve a time of sharing and extended prayer.
WhatsApp Group – the St Luke’s WhatsApp Group is used for any urgent prayer needs (and also recycling unwanted household items!). We also use twitter and Facebook.
Bereavement Support Group – this has been a great encouragement to participants (although currently on hold).
Social events - as a church we love any excuse to meet socially, whether it is a welcome lunch for newcomers to the church, a quiz night, a BBQ, Fish and Chip supper, Christmas craft evening, walks, wine tasting, birthday/baptism celebration lunch or the occasional café style church.
