Limited services will continue in St Luke’s church into October

The relaxation of official restrictions now permits certain services to continue in church buildings, but subject to strict conditions including social distancing being met and comprehensive risk assessment.   St Luke’s is a relatively small church and keeping to the recommended social distancing requirement limits the maximum number who can safely attend to about 30 people. 

Full information on the latest situation regarding physical and Zoom meetings and services can be found on our main website or Facebook page.
