Our Discerning

Vision (for five years' time)

St Luke's offers a space for quiet prayer in people's own time and in their own way. It has an intimate, friendly atmosphere for weddings, baptisms and funerals.

Priorities (for the next five years)

  • To offer a welcome to all.
  • To develop work with schools and young people.
  • To maintain the fabric of the building.

Goals (for the next year)

  • To keep the church open at weekends.
  • To offer both Eucharistic and informal worship.
  • To build links with those who do not regularly attend services through special events such as Harvest Scarecrow festival, 'Following the Star' and the tour of the war graves.
  • To resurface the car park by the end of 2014.
  • To improve the appearance of the outside of the church, making it more appealing to the local community as a place to visit. To be done by end of 2014.
