Our Purpose Statement:

 We are called by God to know Jesus through worship and discipleship.                                                          We seek to share the love of Jesus in our local community through welcome and outreach. 




From February 2017 our Office Hour for booking or discussing Baptisms and Weddings with Rev. Shirley Devine will alternate between St. Luke's and St. John's on Wednesday Evenings starting from 6.00pm. The first and third Wenesdays of each month will be at St. Luke's, with the second and fourth Wednesdays being at St. John's.  It doesn't matter where the Baptism or Wedding is to take place. No appointment is necessary.  Just turn up.  Only one person need attend, but both partners can come come and bring children if that is easier.
