Welcome to St. Luke's Church - a delightful, village church in the heart of the Cheshire countryside.
Within sight of the famous Jodrell Bank Radio Telescope, St. Luke's is in a prominent position in the village, near the school, pubs, shops and station. Its people and its activities have been an integral part of the village life since the Middle Ages, and they continue to play an active part in the community today.

Parochial Church Council (PCC) As with all Anglican churches, the Parochial Church Council is the main authority and decision making body. In Goostrey, its members are elected at the AGM for a term of three years, running in rotation.
With the Vicar and Curate, the PCC also includes the PCC Secretary, the Church Treasurer and the Local Ministry Team. Lively discussion always ensues as members discuss the current issues in the church life. Ideas are aired and views expressed before any necessary decisions are taken.
