** Coronavirus Pandemic update **
Suspension of Public Worship Services
Following new lockdown restrictions introduced by the government throughout England on Thursday 5 November, we are no longer able to hold services of public worship until these restrictions are eased again. Church may be open at set times or by appointment for private prayer. Please contact the churchwarden to make an appointment.
Re-opening of Churches for Public Worship
We are pleased to announce that St Luke’s church will once again be open for worship this Sunday, 12 July at our usual time of 3.30pm. Following recent guidelines and advice from the Government and the Diocese of Leeds, the necessary risk assessments have been undertaken and we are now able to meet together once again. Our services will, for the foreseeable future, be somewhat different to previously. There will be hand sanitiser available on entry, seating marked out in the pews to ensure suitable social distancing is maintained, no singing of hymns or sharing the peace, and no refreshments shared at the end of the service among some of the changes made. We will have Welcomers on hand as you enter to explain and guide you through these changes.
Our doors have been closed for a long time while we have been doing our part in reducing non-essential journeys and social gatherings in order to keep our congregation and community safe. We now very much look forward to opening our doors again and welcoming you all back in to share God’s Word and Love with each other, and trust you understand the need to introduce these measures to continue to keep everyone safe and well.
We have a weekly Sunday worship with Holy Communion Sunday commencing at 3.30pm.
Morning Prayer is held at 9.15am on Mondays.
Occasionally Joint Benefice Services are held at one of the other churches in the Benefice but this will be published in the News, Events Calendar section.
There are occasional weekday services at special times in the church’s year (for example Maunday Thursday). These are advertised on the notice board outside the church and in the News, Events Calendar section, and the website via Google calendar.
All our services are child friendly and family orientated. We have baby changing facilities and activities and games for toddlers and children to use during services.
