Recital on our new organ – 2nd October

Recital on our new organ – 2nd October

Our new organ was commissioned at a recital on 2nd October by the acclaimed organist Ian Tracey, Organist Titulaire at Liverpool Cathedral.

Thanks to the generosity of many we have now been able to welcome our new organ into the church—and it is clear that it will be of great benefit to our worship.

Ian treated the audience to a superb programme of music chosen by him to demonstrate our organ’s capabilities.  His wonderful musicianship and his interesting and engaging comments about the music and the organ itself made it an evening to remember.

Pastoral letter – November 3rd 2020

Pastoral letter – November 3rd 2020

We write because the latest announcements of the authorities mean there will be no services in church for the next four weeks (and maybe more!). This is disappointing news as our regular 9am Sunday and 10.30 Wednesday small services had been going well. People were positive. Numbers were averaging 30 on Sundays and 20 on Wednesdays. We have made the most of our window of opportunity since the end of July, and thank you for your responsible participation. We will write again when we are able to re-open church services in church.

Towards normality? Your views on worship again in church

The recent relaxation of the official virus restrictions to allow some limited services to start in churches under carefully controlled conditions is very welcome but poses real problems in small churches like St Luke’s. To guide discussion at the July meeting of the Church Council about how and when to resume the limited church services now permitted, we consulted our congregations through a short questionnaire. Read more for some of the statistics and findings which led to the PCC deciding to resume limited services in St Luke’s on a trial basis in August.
