S. Luke's is an Anglo-Catholic Parish within the Church of England. Resolutions A, B & C have been passed by the Parochial Church Council and comes under the Pastoral Care of the PEV, The Bishop of Beverley.
Situated in Southport, one of the leading holiday resorts in the North West of England, S. Luke's is plain, yet withal beautiful, in its calm severity. The church is like "the King's daughter" mentioned in the Psalms "all glorious within." No one could be flippant beneath its calm roof; it stands alone among the churches of Southport for reverent, impressive solemnity.
This type of architecture is eminently suitable for a high ritualistic service. The windows of the aisles and clerestory are pleasantly grouped, and a good effect has thus been obtained by simple means. Internally - There is richness in the chancel, culminating in the stately reredos of 1897, by Harry Hems, of Exeter, with its central subject a lovely painting of the Crucifixion of Our Lord executed by Herr Kehren, of Dusseldorf.
At the end of a busy day and a long tramp, one is glad to sit within this sacred place.
You are always welcome at S. Luke's

Solemn High Mass & Sermon
NOTE: The word 'Solemn' appears before services on Sunday and Holy Days. It does not mean that we all have miserable faces and get terribly serious! It refers to the level of ceremonial used in the act of worship, and in practical terms, 'Solemn' is a kind of code which means 'incence is used'. Incense adds another dimension to our worship, as the fragrance helps us to lift our sense of smell to God, and visually, the smoke arising reminds us of our prayer ascending to heaven, as well as a visual reminder of sacrifice - the true sacrifice (of Christ) being that which we celebrate in every Mass. The lingering aroma in the church building is a reminder that something awesome, holy and mysterious has been taking place.
Every Sunday at 10:30 AM for 1 hour and 15 minutes.
