WHAT TO EXPECT
Before the service people catch up with each other or sit in the church hall and enjoy the organ prelude. After the service we love to stay back over a cup of tea or coffee and some snacks to mingle and talk about the week gone by and look forward to the week ahead. “A sorrow shared is but half a trouble, but a joy that's shared is a joy made double.”
Singing & Praying
As Christians, we love to sing and pray to God. Anyone is welcome to join in or just listen. Some songs are accompanied by our beautiful organ and others by the piano. Usually a leader will pray to God on our behalf and other times we pray for each other and for those in our community – thanking him for something, or asking for help and guidance.
Bible Reading & Preaching
A central part of what we do in our weekly meetings is to read a section of the Bible – which we believe to be the source of truth for our lives. Based on the passage we read, our minister explains the passage to us and shows how it is a source of peace and comfort to each of us - not only at church, but throughout all of life. This usually takes about 30 minutes.
Each Sunday morning (during school terms) our team of Sunday school teachers guide kids in fun games, arts and crafts, singing and a lesson from the bible. The classes are in the same building as the church hall. Parents and kids start together in church and then a few minutes into the service all the kids go together to class.
Welcomers & Friendly Helpers
At St Luke’s our commitment is that there will always be someone to welcome you and help you find your way around. We love to get to know you and may introduce you to a few of the members – but if you prefer to stay low key for a while first, that’s fine too.
Someone to Talk and Pray with
If at any time you need a hand with anything, or just want to chat, feel free to speak to any of the members. Most of us will have a blue name badge on. Our minister Corrie is also always happy to meet up - please feel free to contact him.
