Our worship is essentially Anglican.  We embrace the New Zealand Prayer Book, believing in the value of its Bible-based liturgy and the organised calendar of the Church's year, which ensures we follow the Christ story in its entirety.  Our priest leads the services but encourages others to participate in ways in which they feel comfortable.  The essential role of the Eucharist is a vital part of our worship. 

We value small group discussion either in church or in our homes.  We occasionally hold seminars to discuss issues of the day from a Christian perspective.  Within our small groups, we openly discuss our understanding of the Bible, and our concerns, within the context of modern 21st century theological examination. 

We accept our differences and in this diverse world, know our Christian ethic calls us to embrace all our neighbours. 

 

Service Times

The diversity of our congregation is reflected in our worship.

We have two regular services each week – 10.00am Sunday and 10.00am Wednesday both which use the New Zealand Prayer Book.

Our Sunday 10.00am Eucharist (Holy Communion, and includes a simple Children's Ministry)  The children join us for the beginning of the Sunday service and then go to Sunday School.  They return to the church as we gather together for Communion in which children are encouraged to participate in a level appropriate for them. 

Music on Sunday is a mix of traditional hymns accompanied by the organ and more contemporary songs led by our talented music group.  Members of the congregation participate as the worship leader, by reading scripture, leading intercessory prayers and assisting with Communion.  There is a quiet time of reflection following the Gospel reading.  The healing team is available at the back of the church during Communion and after the service for those seeking healing. 

Our Wednesday 10.00am Eucharist (Holy Communion) gathers in our Chapel and is around 45 minutes long. This is a low key, gentle service which follows the New Zealand Prayer Book.

Everyone is invited to share morning tea following the Sunday and Wednesday services. Fellowship is an important part of St Luke's and there are plenty of friendly faces to make visitors feel at home.

We have an 8.00am Reflective Eucharist on the first Sunday of each month. This service follows the New Zealand Prayer Book interwoven with the practices of contemplation, meditation and silence. This service is about 45 minutes long.
