Who we are and Safeguarding info

Our church name is St Luke’s. The name Luke means “Light Giving" in Latin.

We pray that we will be true to the name Luke and introduce many to the Light of the World.

Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” (John 8:12)

OUR MISSION STATEMENT

“Taking Steps Towards Christ”

We feel that we are all on a journey, working our way nearer to Christ.

We need to continue to take forward steps and develop our understanding of Christianity and make our journeys more meaningful.

During our worship and at home, we aim to take steps to become nearer to Christ. We believe that our faith is foremost and our church and home family and our friendships play an important part in all our lives.
