Welcome to St Luke’s –
the Parish Church of St Luke the Evangelist on Burton Stone Lane, York.
You’ve probably heard that on the 17th March, the Church of England announced that we won’t be holding any public services for the time being, as part of the effort to control the Coronavirus outbreak.
New emergency rules from the 23rd March mean that we can’t meet in our building at all for the time being.
At St Luke’s we’re planning to reach out and continue to support people around us who need it, and to keep a praying presence in our parish and amidst our community.
We’ll post more information here as things unfold.
We serve a parish of about 5,500 souls about a mile north of York Minster; standing on the corner of the Lane and Shipton Street, St Luke’s has been home to warm, welcoming and worshipping Christian community for over a hundred years.
We meet to worship God every Sunday and at some time on most weekdays too; St Luke’s sees weddings, Christenings and funerals throughout the year, and our Church Hall is a busy hub for church and community social events.
During term-time we offer a Parent and Toddler Drop-in every Monday and Wednesday morning, and a range of children’s and young people’s activities mostly on a Friday evening. We welcome new members to choirs for young people and the young-at-heart, and for senior citizens our Tuesday Club meets every week.
St Luke’s is commited to grow in Christlikeness, influence and numbers; to welcome all, to work to safeguard God’s creation, and to promote justice in the world.
See you soon…
