At the moment we meet to worship, pray and encourage each other as the people of God at St Luke's online because of the COVID pandemic. We have some great things to join in with. Log in details for all events on Zoom are available from the church office:
Monday to Friday 8.15 – 8.45am on Zoom - Leaning into Lent
A time when we read a passage from John's gospel together and reflect on it in small groups before praying for the things on our hearts. It finishes promptly after 30 minutes. Anyone can join in as we start a new season together. You don't need to be able to come every morning - just drop in when you can!
Wednesday 7.30pm–9.15pm join our midweek Lent Course "Eat this Book"
This is being held over 5 evenings from Weds 24th Feb to Weds 24th March. Each week includes time for a coffee break as well so that you can connect with others. We explore some key passages of scripture that we encounter on the journey to Easter. We also think about how to read different types of scripture and learn some new tools for engaging with God's word. Anyone can join in.

Friday 5th March 10.30am Women’s World Day of Prayer Service – All Hallows Church
The first Friday in March is the date set aside in the church calendar for the Women’s World Day of Prayer. Last year, we hosted the service at St Luke’s. The organisers of this year’s WDP service (at All Hallows’, Lady Bay) have decided to postpone a full service until September because of the COVID pandemic. However, there will be a simplified service, with no singing, in All Hallows' Church on Friday and via Zoom. The church can safely accommodate 20 to 25 people but places need to be booked. Please contact Jacky Tivers (St Luke’s WDP representative) ASAP for more details or if you would like a seat firstname.lastname@example.org. She can also supply printed copies of the service for personal use at home, if requested.
Saturday March 13th Annual Parochial Church Meeting (APCM) via Zoom
Please join us to celebrate what God has been doing in our Church during 2020. This will also be an opportunity for us to thank our Wardens, Treasurer and PCC members. We will also be appointing new people to some of these roles, please pray that the right people come forward and consider if these are areas in which you could serve. We do have vacancies. Please get in touch if you would like to find out more or to get nomination forms.
