St. Luke's is an Anglican church (Church of England), sited between the beaches and meadows of Torre Abbey and the town centre. We may be described as Traditional in its churchmanship yet shares its understanding that the ordained priesthood is for all whom the church believe to be called. Our parish whilst being set in the middle of 'hotel land' has a regular and welcoming congregation drawn from all over Torbay. As a people, we are passionate about gathering together as a community every Sunday for worship, teaching and ministry. Our services are further enhanced by a committed choir led by a three manual Walker organ which offers music to mark the different seasons of the liturgical year together with familiar hymns. At the end of each morning service we serve tea / coffee etc offering space for you to meet new people and catch up with old friends.

If you are visiting us for the first time we hope you and your family will have a warm and spirit-filled experience with us as we worship and share fellowship together.

We also offer two very large halls for hire 7 days a week which boasts 2 kitchens, toilets and good car parking.
