Our Worship

Our worship is rooted in the Anglican tradition. We embrace A New Zealand Prayer Book, appreciating how it reflects the Scriptures. Our worshipping life is organised around the Church’s calendar and seasons, which ensures we follow the Christ story in its entirety. The Eucharist is a vital part of our worship. Coordinated by the priest, people are encouraged to participate in worship in a variety of ways from leading worship, creating music, leading prayers, reading the Scriptures, being part of the healing team, ministering with our children and serving at communion.
Music in our 10am Sunday service is a mix of traditional hymns accompanied by the organ and more contemporary songs lead by the music group. The healing team is available at the back of the church during communion and after the service for those seeking healing.
The diversity of our congregation is reflected in our worship. There are two regular services each week, both of which use A New Zealand Prayer Book: 10.00 am Sunday and 10.00 am Wednesday. We have a monthly 8.00 am reflective Eucharist using the New Zealand Prayer Book and drawing from the contemplative and meditative traditions.

Children join us for the beginning of the 10am Sunday service and then go to Sunday School. Our organised Childrens’ Ministry provides for children from 18 months old, to school year 8 in the adjacent St Lukes Centre buildings. The children return to join the adults for Communion in which they are encouraged to participate.

The Wednesday 10.00am Eucharist gathers in the Chapel (accessed from the cloister) and is no longer than 40 minutes. This is a low key, gentle service which follows a liturgical pattern from A New Zealand Prayer Book. We often use the ‘For all the Saints’ resource to inspire and guide us. Children are always welcome.

Fellowship & Hospitality

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