We gather at 8:30 am at 10:30 am. Our Main Service is at 1030 am


You are warmly invited to join in this worship. There is always a social time following the main Service which is a great time to socialize and get to know people. Our liturgies are either the Holy Eucharist or Morning Prayer.

When Morning Prayer is scheduled, it is led by a lay reader. Our parish priest presides over the Eucharist on most occasions but our Honourary Assistant also is the Celebrant from time to time. In the Summer months, we adopt a slightly different schedule.

Our parish priest also has responsibility as priest for the Parish of St Matthew - St Aidan in nearby Buckhorn. Consequently, he alternates Sundays between there and St Luke's. The schedule below outlines the rotation at St Luke's of Services between Holy Eucharist and Morning Prayer.

Please note: We follow the Liturgical Calendar of the Anglican Communion from Advent in November through to the Reign of Christ the following November. We use the three-year lectionary cycle of the Revised Common Lectionary. Liturgical colours are indicated below with 'Grey' representing the colour White.
