About Us

St Luke's is a community whose purpose is to share Christ's love with all people, through worship, learning, caring relationships and service to others.  In a largely residential parish St Luke’s draws together people of many different ages, backgrounds and Christian traditions.  Over the years, the church has built a reputation as a friendly, open, family-oriented community that is forward thinking.

Built during the First World War, the stone built, traditional style church has oak pews, an oak Reredos and communion rail, a Makin electronic organ (the disused pipe organ is still in-situ), LED screens and a modern sound system.  There is direct access to the Parish Centre from the church.  A Prayer Room has been created.  A corner of the church has been set aside as a children's area.  

We are part of a group of three churches in the centre of Hartlepool sharing two priests.  Our style is 'middle-of-the road' with traditional Book of Common Prayer services each week on Wednesday and one morning Sunday Communion service using Common Worship.  On first Sundays we have a more relaxed style to our main Common Worship service, to which we encourage families to attend.
