CORONAVIRUS UPDATE Updated 08/04/2020
This page will be updated regularly to reflect how we are responding to the evolving Coronavirus situation.
Please join us for our online services here.
In light of the Government guidance around non-essential travel and social contact including public worship, the Church of England has issued advice that public worship is suspended with immediate effect until further notice.
Sadly this means our usual pattern of Sunday meetings and all other mid-week gatherings of all ages must be put on hold for a season.
This does not mean that St Luke’s has shut up shop. On the contrary, we will never be more keenly aware of our need to spur one another to trust in the sovereign grace of our God as we await Jesus’ return, and to hold out his message of hope and life to a world in darkness. Therefore, in that regard, we are open for business as usual. However, we will need to think about how we can still ‘be’ church even when we can’t ‘do’ church in the ways we have become used to.
– we are streaming a service of word and prayer each Sunday morning at our usual time of 11am on our Facebook page, and are available on our website after that.
– small group meetings are continuing by online video conferencing. Get in touch if you’d like to join one.
– one to one relationships are continuing by phone and email. Please get in touch if you’d like someone to talk to. No one should be or need be left behind.
– our children and youth are being resourced by Kids Talks on our Facebook Page and Together@Home materials on our website.
Take a moment to pray now, for our church family, its leaders, the wider world especially those under huge pressure and for opportunities to share our message of hope in the face of fear, sickness and death.
Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any concerns or questions.
