Our Building

You are very welcome to come and pray in St Luke's, and to light a candle. The church is open from 9am-3:30pm (3pm in winter) Monday to Friday, and 10am-3pm on Saturdays and Sundays. The clergy are available if you wish to speak to someone; please ask a member of staff at Café Portico or visit the Parish Office down the steps to the right of the church.

St Luke's is a Grade I listed building.

Music and Worship

St Luke's has a ring of ten bells. They are rung before the 10:30am service on Sundays, and for special events such as weddings.

Concerts / Live Music

Every Sunday at 8am.

The choir at St Luke's is a young and friendly group, who put just as much enthusiasm into socialising as singing! We are the perfect choice for anyone who has sung in cathedral or chapel choirs at university and wishes to continue singing to a high standard when they leave and move to London. We regularly recruit for all voice parts. Choral scholarships are also available. Please see our page on joining the choir for more information
