Annual Church Report
Because of the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, it was not possible to hold the Annual Church Meeting in April of this
year. Following communication from the Bishop of Southwark, it has now been decided to delay the Meeting until April 2021.
However, subject to Government guidelines at the time, we hope to hold an informal Church Meeting as part of the notices in the Church service on Sunday 25th October, at 10.30am. For last year a brief verbal report will be given on the current situation, and there will be an opportunity for questions.

Message from the Vicar: Revd Annie Kurk
These words come from a little book called ‘Where is God in a Coronavirus World’ by John C Lennox. I commend it to you all – it could help you to find the hope and peace of God as we continue to battle this pandemic that affects every single one of us. And I don’t know how anyone can get through some of the suffering and pain it continues to cause, without God.
As we open our lovely church for worship once again, please do come and join in with our Sunday morning worship at 9.30am. It may look and feel a bit different to how it used to be, but we know that God’s Holy Spirit is still with us and in us, gently re-moulding us into beautiful pots of clay. (I love that image from Jeremiah 18!)
At St Luke’s Church we worship together as a community intent on living out Jesus’ command for us to ‘love our neighbour’. Let’s discover just how the Holy Spirit works through our faithful words and deeds together.
This is the day that the Lord has made
Let us rejoice and be glad in it.
We believe that all people are created in the image of God and are called into a loving, dynamic and transformative relationship with God, through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, his Son and through the power of the Holy Spirit.
On Sundays we come together to receive Holy Communion, to be challenged and encouraged by God’s word and to receive strength and support from God and from one another so that we can live our daily lives more openly and lovingly, sharing the good news of Christ in our words and through our lives.
We aim to be an inclusive church welcoming everyone, whatever their age, background, sexuality or relationship status and regardless of how much or how little faith they may have. Honest doubters and people with questions are positively welcomed!
