This new book, researched and written by the Local History Group of Holmes Chapel & District U3A, describing the history of St Luke’s, has been published. It describes the key events and people across the centuries, as well as the many historic details of the building itself and its contents.

The book runs to about 166 pages, is printed in A5 format and includes various coloured plates and has been so popular that a second print-run has been required. Copies are therefore now available to purchase.

The book is available at a price of £15 per copy. All profits will go to St Luke’s Organ and Lighting Appeal (see, managed by St Luke’s PCC which is underwriting the cost of publication.

If you would like a copy please write to me at 15 Jodrell Close, Holmes Chapel, CW4 7HH, or by email to, providing your name, address and phone number. I will contact you to arrange payment and delivery.

Many thanks
