St Luke’s is led by a Parish Council (Vestry) who work alongside the Vicar. Members are elected annually at the Annual General Meeting of the church community. The Council meets monthly and, with the Vicar and two Churchwardens, has responsibility for the spiritual and pastoral leadership of St Luke’s and oversight of our finances and property.
Recognising the ministry of all the baptised, as well as those who have not been baptised and seek to deepen their faith, we encourage everyone to be involved in the various groups and activities of the Parish.
