St Luke’s is a charismatic Evangelical Anglican church, part of the Diocese of Newcastle. We are a New Wine network church and a ‘Fresh Expression’– authorised by the Church of England from our beginnings in 2007 to ‘think outside the box’, and we like to think the Lord is helping us combine the best of the old with the best of the new!
So each Sunday morning we have a relaxed Holy Communion followed by tea and coffee. On Sunday evenings we start with food, tea and coffee followed by an unscripted ‘open to the Holy Spirit’ event. During the week we have an early morning prayer meetings with breakfast where we worship, study the Bible and pray. You can find further details about these on our ‘Church Life’ pages.
We invite committed members or enquirers to join or visit a midweek group. Each group has a particular focus and is a place where people get to know one another, seek God together and look for ways of serving their community.
Students and the Universities
St Luke’s is University student friendly – we have a large number of students who attend St Luke’s, and this year will be lead wonderfully by Rob Douglas (5th Year Architecture) and Floss Bowen-Rees, (5th year medical student). We fully support the Christian Union and we have been a Fusion link church from the beginning.
Speakers of Life (SOL) are accountable to, and speak into the Pastors’ group, Together in Christ (TIC), which Robert leads. TIC is a wonderful association of senior church leaders who meet weekly to pray and out of which have come many strategic ventures, one of them being Healing on the Streets (HOTS).
