Easter is always a profound time. Here is what our Easter looks like in St Luke’s for 2019. You are most welcome to join us for any or all of these : )
April 18th Maundy Thursday 7pm
A time of Word, Sacrament and foot-washing, starting in the Whittingback Hall and ending in the Sanctuary with the stripping of the altar.
April 19th Good Friday 10am
A service of Morning Prayer for Good Friday, with readings, hymns and mediation.
Please note – no Easter Vigil to be held at St Luke’s this year.
April 21st Easter Day
Following the success of last year’s experiment, we repeat our sunrise service. This simple service starts at 7:30am and will last for about 45 minutes. We then have breakfast before our main celebration of Holy Communion for Easter Day starts at 10am.
7.30am Easter Day sunrise service
8.30am–ends at 9.30am Breakfast
10am Easter Day Holy Communion
It’s our Easter Special this week. We’ll be remembering Jesus’ love for us and all he won for us at the Cross.
As always we start at 4pm. Our meal follows at about 5.15pm or so. There is no cost. We are delighted for your company and always feel free to bring anyone along with you : )
We have decided to go for it and apply for a grant, to see if we can install solar panels on our roof.
This application will make us carbon-neutral as a church.
There is a long way to go and we may not be successful, but we think it’s worth a try : )
You can find more information of why solar panels can make a real difference with the resources below.
We are catching up on putting these sermons online. Thanks for your patience.
We have really enjoyed this series and we hope you have too. Please find below the text only of Colossians 3:17-end. We have no video of that. Below that is the video from March 3rd.
May God bless you richly : )
Our Lent course begins on Wednesday 13th March and runs through to Wednesday 10th April inclusive.
What will we be doing?
We invite you to join us on a journey during Lent: Where do you come from? Where are you going? The parable of the Father and His two sons from Luke 15 will provide the starting point for our time of reflection, self examination, and prayer (7 – 7:30pm), followed by a time of fellowship and dessert, communion and celebration. The dessert part will be potluck style so anything you bring will be appreciated – from cake to chips, pickles, or olives (whatever you can find in your fridge) – but please feel free to come if you can’t bring anything!!!
We look forward to journeying and learning together
