St. Luke's is:
- A collection of not perfect
- Who are trying to follow the teachings of Jesus of Nazareth
- And in doing so, are finding we are cherished, forgiven and valued beyond measure in spite of all the dumb things we have done!
- So on Sundays we come to our lovely church building to give thanks, to pray & sing, to learn more, and to worship the Creator God
- We also gather after our worship time, to have coffee & munchies and a good old fashioned visit with each other
- The love we receive from God and from each other encourages us to:
• keep going when things are tough;
• help others in need; and,
• to let other folks know about Jesus.
So, if you would like to know a bit more about us, or join us on Sundays, please read on...
Our Sunday Services:
At 8:30 AM, we are guided in quiet worship and Holy Communion by following the service in the Book of Common Prayer.
At 10:00 AM, we are brought into worship through the singing of classic hymns and contemporary songs, and are guided through the service of Holy Communion as outlined in the Book of Alternative Services. Children and infants attend Sunday School or are cared for in the nursery.
Starting January 3rd
, there will be only one Sunday service at 11:00 am, followed by coffee hour.
, we have extra special services to celebrate these important seasons.
Throughout the year, we gather on other special occasions such as baptisms, weddings, and funerals.
We also celebrate Camping Sunday, Remembrance Day, Aboriginal Sunday, Harvest Sunday and even the Blessing of the Animals!
And at all services, we strive to pray for peace and justice in this beautiful world, for our country, and all communities, especially our neighbourhood.
We pray for each other and for our leaders.
Here is one of our favourites:
Lord, make us instruments of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let us sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is discord, union;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope, where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy.
Grant that we may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love.
For it is giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is dying that we are born to eternal life.
Perhaps this prayer sums our desire to join in God's Mission by being a welcoming community, living and serving in grace, to the glory of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
We hope to see and serve you!
St. Luke's is located at the corner of Cameron and McKenzie Streets, where we have been gathering in these buildings since 1895!!
That means there have been a whole lot of praises sung, prayers prayed and Bibles read.
We are part of the Anglican Church of Canada
, in the Diocese of Algoma
