About UsAbout St Luke's Newcastle upon Tyne
St Luke’s is a charismatic Evangelical Anglican church, part of the Diocese of Newcastle. We are a New Wine network church and a ‘Fresh Expression’– authorised by the Church of England from our beginnings in 2007 to ‘think outside the box’, and we like to think the Lord is helping us combine the best of the old with the best of the new!Our Vision Statement

St Luke’s is University student friendly – we have several students who attend St Luke’s, and love to welcome them to our services and Community Groups.History
St Luke’s was built in 1886 as the daughter church of St. Andrew’s; the oldest church in Newcastle. The faithful congregation dwindled until 2006 when the church was closed. The Bishop of Newcastle then invited Robert to become vicar at St Luke’s and to bring in the fledgling congregation (affectionately called ‘New Wine on Tyne’ by its members!) which he had begun 3 years earlier, with 7 adults and 3 children in a small council hall. Thus becoming a unique Anglican hybrid – a parish church that is also a Fresh Expression! There was a wonderful induction service held in January 2007.
Since then St Luke’s has been meeting in the adjoining Grade 2 listed hall, which has been steadily and fully refurbished over the last 6 years, complete with very lovely carpet upstairs and a professional catering kitchen downstairs, and it is a delightful place to worship!
