Sunday Service on YouTube and printed copies

Dear Church,

 

I’m sure you have all heard by now that the Archbishops of Canterbury and York have asked churches to stop public worship for a season.  This means there will not be any planned gathered worship, on a Sunday or during the week, in St Luke’s church until further notice.

Please visit our Sermons page to view and listen to our recorded services.

Sunday early morning

Every Sunday at 8.45am

we have a quieter, reflective service of Holy Communion (common worship)

Sunday morning

Every Sunday at 10.30am 

we have a contemporary service with the sung worship mostly led by a music group and singers, with the organ accompanying us occasionally. We begin our service gathered together and after 15-20 minutes the children and young people go to their age specific groups. Sometimes the service is an ‘All Together’ service, and is appropriate for all ages. On the third Sunday of a month we share bread and wine together.

Listen to previous sermons here.

Sunday evening

On the third Sunday of the month at 6.30pm

we have an evening service of sung worship, prayer, ministry and conversation.  This is a very informal service in the St Peter's Room and there is space and time to meet with God and let Him minister to you through the Holy Spirit.  This service does not take place in July and August.

Messy Church

On the second Sunday of the month we run Messy Church starting at 4.15pm till 6.00pm. 

Messy Church starts with crafts and activities in the church space - some of these are quieter and calm and other activities can be noisier and boisterous!  After about 40 minutes we all move into the St Peter's Room (in the same building) for our celebration service when we sing, pray, have a bible reading and think more about the theme of Messy Church for that Sunday.  Richard often does a trick to help us think about God.  Around 5.20pm we move back into the church space, which has now been set up for eating, and we end with a hot meal.   There is no need to book to come to Messy Church - just turn up and there is not cost to come to Messy Church; however we do invite a donation of £1 per person to cover our food costs, but if you forget your money on month or find this is too expensive, there is no pressure to pay anything....we would just love to welcome you to Messy Church.

Mid-week Communion

Wednesday at 10.30am is our mid-week Service

in the St Peter's Room. An hour long, informal service where we sing (guitar led) and explore a bible passage together, pray and share holy communion.  Tea and coffee is served afterwards.

groups

Bubbles is for children aged 2-6 and meets Sunday during the morning service. They praise God, learn about Him and have fun together.

Explore is for children aged 7-10 and meets Sunday mornings during the morning service. They learn about God in appropriate ways for their age with fun, exciting and challenging activities. We hope and pray they will come to know God for themselves and grow in faith. Occasionally they are involved in the morning service.

Thirst is for young people aged 12 years upwards and meets Sunday mornings during the morning service. Through reading the bible and discussions we try to encourage the young people to go deeper in their faith by thinking about how they live their lives and what relevance their faith has in their lives.  Thirst also meets for social events at varied times and places throughout the year.  Youth Leaders will pass on more details when they are happening.

Easter
 

We have a Passover / Last Supper Celebration on Maundy Thursday at 6.00pm.  A meal for all ages; there is a cost for this meal and tickets can be ordered through the church office.

On Good Friday we have a service at 10.30am - An Hour at the Cross (a reflective, meditative service)

On Easter Day we celebrate 'Christ is Risen' with an outdoor service on the ridge of Priory Park leaving from the church at 6am.  We come back to the church for coffee and hot cross buns.  We have our usual services at 8.45am and 10.30am both with Holy Communion.  Depending on what Sunday of the month Easter day is, we may have another service also.

Harvest

 

We celebrate Harvest Festival on the first Sunday in October, always giving to a charity that works with those overseas who are less fortunate than ourselves.  In recent years we have supported projects run by International Needs.

Weddings

Congratulations if you are reading this section as you are thinking about getting married. It is a joy and pleasure to be involved with you and support you on this special day.

 

Please contact Revd Anita Colpus to talk about your wedding day. If you are enquiring about your banns being read because you are getting married at another church, please contact Pearl Smith and she will arrange this with you. There are costs for church weddings and banns being read.

Baptisms

We are delighted to baptise children and adults into church. Baptism is the public declaration of faith in God, made by the person coming for baptism or parents if the child is too young to profess a faith for themselves.

 

If you are interested in baptism, please contact Revd Anita Colpus. Baptisms take place during our main Sunday service and can also be by full immersion. There is no cost to be baptised in church.

Funerals

At the sad and changing season of losing a loved one, God can be a comfort and give peace if we allow Him. If you would like a church service to give thanks for and celebrate the life of one who has died, we would be honoured to do this and journey with you at this sad time and we can also do a memorial service.

 

Please contact Revd Anita Colpus for guidance and assistance. We also have a group for widows and widowers that meets monthly called ‘Changing Paths’; if you are interested in meeting others in a similar position, please contact Revd Anita Colpus. There are costs for church funerals.

Groups

At St Luke's Church we believe that the children and young people have a part to play in the body of Christ. We run specific age groups which teaches, models and encourages them to become Children of God, whatever age.

 

Our vision is to teach them about the incredible love of God and the fun and adventure involved in following Jesus.
