St Luke’s Anglican Church is an inclusive community that centres around God’s total self giving, the Holy Eucharist. Steeped in a Contemplative Spirituality, we embrace a vision of community, tradition, mystery and hope. The Holy Trinity, Adonai, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit invites us to “become participants in the divine nature” ( 2 Peter 1:4), and so we yield to the divine indwelling as “God became human that human would become god” (St Athanatius).
Join us for our principle Sunday sung Eucharistic celebrations with programming for children: traditional at 10 am and ‘in the round’ at 4:30 pm. On Wednesdays at 11 am we share in a simple ‘lectio divina’ oriented liturgy with Holy Eucharist, we gather for Centering Prayer on Mondays and Wednesdays at 5:30 and on the first Friday of every month for our Labyrinth Walk and Mediation.
The first fruit of a Eucharistic and Contemplative Spirituality is a robust hospitality and work for social justice. We strive to follow the first commandment:
“To love one another” (John 13:34). We need your help serving the world God loves, in Jesus’ name.
You are welcome here, join us!
“…love one another as I have loved you.” John 13:34
St Luke’s community is a mixture of people seeking God: the young and the seasoned, of many colours, creeds and orientations. Jesus Christ reveals to us what a true human being is. He loved not just his friends, but He washed the feet of those who would betray him and loved those who crucified him. We look to follow Jesus’ example: We often fall short, and we try again. All are welcome, without exception.
“apostles’ teaching, the fellowship, the breaking of bread and the prayers.” Acts 2:42
Like creation itself, God plants many gardens. We are rooted in the Anglican expression of the Church catholic as passed on from the “apostles' teaching, the fellowship, the breaking of bread and the prayers”(Acts 2:42). Our communal life flows from our Baptism, the Eucharist, the Scriptures, the lives of the Saints and the experience of faith through the ages.
“…become partakers of the divine nature…” 2 Peter 1:4
At the centre of our community is the celebration of the Eucharist. We strive to live our lives steeped in prayer and the sacramental vision of a world in which God ‘tents’ among us (John 1:14). During the liturgy, or in prayer, we engage or abandon our senses to ascend and descend into true life and we return to a world as altars of blessing. To “become partakers in the divine nature” (2 Peter 1:4) we are on a journey, leading always beyond ourselves, even thought itself, yielding in relationship to the indwelling God.
“…this mystery which is Christ in you will be glorified.” 2 Corinthians 3:18
It is our life in God, in relationship with Christ Jesus and the Holy Spirit that we are being transformed into His image that “this mystery which is Christ in you will be glorified” (2 Corinthians 3:18). We strive to be a living hope in a world where all people become the fullness we are created to be, living life abundant and upholding the dignity and freedom of all people.
